Ty

Biography

Given birth to Ben Chijioke in London to Nigerian immigrants, Ty started recording through the middle-’90s, and made an appearance on tracks made by IG Culture’s New Sector Movement, MC Mell ‘O’, DJ Shortee Blitz, and DJ Pogo. He also hosted a hip-hop night time known as Lyrical Lounge, and caused the Ghetto Sentence structure poetry workshop. His Ty debut arrived on Big Dada in past due 2000 using the solitary “Break the Lock.” His 1st full-length, Awkward, made an appearance early the next year and gained kudos from a large number of musical resources. His sophomore recording, Upwards, decreased on Big Dada in past due 2003 and received several end-of-year honors. An American launch came the next spring. Nearer, released in 2006, presented collaborations with heroes De La Spirit and Caught Development’s Conversation, while 2010’s Unique Sort of Fool — his 1st launch for BBE — included insight from over twelve guest vocalists.

1 And I watch Saturday Night Live (1975) religiously, I have since I was a little boy. I watch it basically like one of my favorite sports teams.
2 My younger brother and I have been writing together, mainly for fun, for years, but we've been improvising together since we were kids. Literally.
3 There's lots of problem solving in any marriage, but when you have this collective goal that is a human being, it's an inspiring rally point.
4 A lot of modern comedies are difficult to watch too, because they're so ironic and so detached and so quote-unquote clever. They kind of keep you at arm's length. They can be really funny, but they're not really nourishing.
5 Everything I do from now on, I'll have a mustache. I can promise you that. I don't care who I have to convince. If you see me with a mustache in a movie or on stage in the future, you'll know that I pitched the idea.
6 I didn't know that there was such a thing as butter carving. But then, I poked around a little bit. A quick Google search will show you 55,000 images of butter carvings, and they're extraordinary.
7 I just like comedy in general. My film work, which has been at times more dramatic, has been satisfying. But I never feel quite as good and as light and blissful as when I'm doing comedy.
8 I think once I fail enough as a dad, I'll be looking for help wherever I can get it. I just need enough time to screw things up and then I'll start looking to TV dads for advice.
9 I'm not saying this just to be self-deprecating, but I have always taken delight in playing people who are oblivious, because I do think I have giant, giant blind spots. It's a very comfortable place to be.
10 I've played a lot of really smarmy people in film, and it can be real fun, don't get me wrong. But it can be characters I'm not as excited to explore.
11 My wife handles all of our technology. So if something goes wrong with the computer, I throw up my arms and step aside while the IT gal figures it out.
12 You know, I used to think I was a foodie, and then my wife went to culinary school and basically explained to me that I was just a guy that likes to eat.
