Ty Dolla $ign turned the Observatory OC out in Santa Ana, CA on his "Beach House" tour !
The now "Taylor Gang" L.A. rapper/singer/producer Ty$ (Ty Dolla Sign) brought a live-star studded show to the Observatory OC- turning the building into the hottest spot to be on a Sunday night (May 18)!
Songstress Mila J, Joe Moses, and Bobby Brackins joined in to prep the crowd on the Beach House tour, as well as a few surprise guests which included Jeremih.
The stage sported a nice fitting scenery with beach chairs, umbrellas, and inflatable beach balls, sharks- the whole-nine! Close to 11pm Ty$ hit the stage and the entire room went crazy. He was joined on stage with two men, one of which included his father, who played the Saxophone and Trumpet.
Ty$ gave his fans a set consisting of hot hitters off his Beach House mixtapes as well as hit singles he's been featured on and produced. "My Cabana", and "Toot it and Boot it", had the crowd going! Ty$ slowed it down a bit on songs like "4 a Young" and "or Nah" where the lights dimmed real low and all the ladies in the place turned down for some slow-and-easy seductive vibe. Throughout his set Ty$ showcased his talent for instrument playing as he played a bit on the keyboard as well as getting on the bass guitar.
From hectic scene on stage of about 30-40 people posse to beach balls and sharks surfacing amongst the crowd (and to not forget the couple of ladies putting on a tittie show for Ty)- the highlight of the night was at the appearance on stage of a few special guests which included Teefli and "Leimert Park Legend" Dom Kennedy.
Teefli got on stage hitting us with the heavy radio smash hit "This D***" and Dom Kennedy chimed in shortly after for a "Still Callin" performance off his Get Home Safely release. You could only imagine how lit the crowd got.
Ty$ ended the night with a very enthusiatic and over the top energized performance of his hit single "Paranoid". The entire crowd recited along- the turn up was so real that he had to give us an encore.
Personally, I'm not too fond of Ty$ or that supposed "new westcoast" sound they are pushing but I respect it and have to commend him for putting on a hell of a show and for being a great performer. Everything from the scenery on stage-to the props, the energy, the guests, all of that meshed together very well.
