A$AP Ty Beats (born Tyshaun Holloway) is one of the most notable up-and-coming producers in hip-hop at the moment. He is the youngest member of hip-hop’s hottest rap/lifestyle collective A$AP Mob. Holloway hails from Virginia but also calls Harlem (139th and Lenox) home, he connected with front man A$AP Rocky via social media in 2011 and the rest is history. You may not know his face but you definitely heard his work as he produced Rocky’s two biggest songs “Pe$o” and “Purple Swag”. Holloway has also worked with TDE artist ScHoolboy Q (“Nightmare on Figg St.”) and Cutthroat Records artist Joey Fatts (“Pillow Talkin’”). He has been featured in numerous print publications including XXL Magazine and been shown on Global Grind TV. Read below as we discuss his career aspirations, the A$AP Mob, partying with Drake, and what he listens to personally. A$APPP!!!
As expected from the Yamborghini Records artist, Joey Fatts has worked with almost every member of the A$AP Mob. Twelvy, Ant, Rocky, and even his manager A$AP Yams has hopped on a track.
While currently wrapping up a tour in Europe with DAT PMF and A$AP Mob, Fatts tosses us his latest mixtape entitled Chipper Jones Vol. 2. The project features Action Bronson, Vince Staples, Freddie Gibbs, 100s, Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky and more. Sonically, we have The Alchemist, A$AP Ty Beats, Young Chop and Fatts himself among others.
Vol. 2 is a step forward for the young Long Beach MC/producer and an excellent debut for Yamborghini Records. Listen and download below.
