SONG FOR SUNDAY #61: Ty – Mind Made Up

Ty - Awkward

Ty’s Mind Made Up is our Song For Sunday.

Legend is not a word that can (or should) be applied to many artists, however UK hip hop stalwart Ty is certainly deserving of such a title. After being at the forefront of the UK scene since the mid-90’s, Ty finally released his debut album, Awkward, in January 2001. Mind Made Up appears on Awkward and is without a doubt the LP’s standout track. Fellow UK production duo Unsung Heroes provided the smooth jazz-tinged soundscape, a perfect accompaniment to Ty’s poetic cadence and effortless flow. His insightful penmanship is the hallmark of his style with the track containing such lyrical gems as “Somebody told me I’m ahead of my time / I said no I’m just ahead of decline”. All in all this is a brilliant track that would be at home on any Sunday chillout playlist.
