A Work Of Heart


A 14 track jazz rap/hip-hop album (1h 2m 3s) — released March 2nd 2018 on Jazz re:freshed

For his 5th release, rap afficianado Ty takes us on a journey of works from his heart. He takes us on a heartfelft and nostalgic trip through his childhood neighbourhood Brixton in answer to would-be gentrifiers of the area, reminding us of the community that makes a great neighbourhood. He exposes a rare vulnerability in this form of music by working through issues over the course of the album of poverty, depression, racism and family. This is balanced by the championing of hiphop, insights to the creative process and philosophical musings on life. There's even an imagined film soundtrack. The album, entitled 'A Work Of Heart' is produced and predominantly written by Ty. The sounds are a mixture of crisp, bouncy production, live instrumentation and vivid and entertaining lyrics. Featured guests include Tall Black Guy, Wayne Francis (United Vibrations) and the legendary Umar Bin Hassan of the Last Poets. Of the album the artist says "This is my life work, it's how I feel...I want to upgrade the view of hiphop."

This jazz-infused hiphop album is simultaneously uplifiting and thought-provoking.
