The modern artist must hustle. Especially the jack-of-all-trades and independent one.
After releasing an instrumental tape, Beat Botany Vol. II, last month, North Carolina hip hop artist Some Guy Ty just dropped a new single on which he composes, writes, and performs; the trifecta of hip hop music.
The track “Get Me Down” continues his 2017 sound with ominous undertones. Some Guy Ty chopped up a sample of oft-EDM vocal contributor Marian Hill and her sensual track “Down” for the instrumental. According to Ty, he began with the sampled hook as he wrote his lyrics to “Get Me Down.” He then aimed to flip the sample into “a positive theme about his struggles of competing in an oversaturated market of independent music.”
And compete he does. “Get Me Down” finds a seamless balance of relatable lyricism with slick reuse of a trendy song. Only recently has Some Guy Ty surfaced on our radar at True Too, but already we have come to expect this meticulous sound from him.
