Up, Up & Away

Many MCs say they're going to 'elevate' - you, their skills, the people - but very few actually raise a whole lot more than their bank balance. So it's time to become reacquainted with TY, one of the most accomplished MCs and musicians around, who with his killer new single, 'Groovement/Ha Ha' takes you so high, lyrically and musically, you won't want to come back down again. And the forthcoming album 'Upwards' shows hip hop's (and TY's) ability to both reflect and transcend its surroundings - without ever forgetting the music's roots in the party. This uncompromising, beautiful record is already being muttered about as a classic-in-waiting by those who have heard it.
