A commanding vocalist and an extremely competent rapper, Hotboi Ty is no stranger to our NMC, and is back in our stereos with a new album From the Heart. On the dynamic single “Time,” Ty leads the track with heavy reverb and auto-tune—the production is marvelous and structures different movements and themes effectively. “Cold Feet” highlights Ty’s fast flow, breaking for a melodic, Miguel-smooth sung chorus, just for a moment before returning to his rapid attack. “Rain cloud, go away. Stay down, had to get some cake,” is the chorus of “Rain Clouds.” While the subject is a tired “get money” message, put simply, Hotboi Ty does it well. We are always impressed with this rapper, who is holding his own and keeps leveling up.
