Ty Dolla Sign Takes on Times Square with VIBE Vixen

Ty Dolla Sign in Time Square

How His Parents Feel About His Music

Ty’s path as a musician was heavily inspired by his dad, who’s worked with Rick James and played in the 70’s band Lakeside.

“My dad is playing on Sign Language. He’s on everything. [Dad would describe my music as] genius. He just loves it. He loves to see me doing what I do. I don’t think mom all the way believed in me but pops always did. He bought me shit.”

On the other hand, Ty says his mother wanted him to do real estate like she does and not music. “Probably because she doesn’t like my dad,” he laughed. Now that he is reaching stardom he says all his mother tells him is, “Make sure you make time to go see your grandparents.”
