Ty Dolla $ign's "L.A." Features Kendrick Lamar & Brandy: Listen

We're eight days out from Free TCTy Dolla $ign's first studio album, and we've heard enough to be well-informed in our stokedness. Today's taste, set to be the first song on the LP, is the silky, starry "L.A."

The new Ty has Kendrick Lamar delivering something like his 50th perfect verse of the year, while Brandy and James Fauntleroy croon beautiful melodies throughout. The beat comes from D’Mile, Chordz and Ty Dolla $ign. This is the seventh Free TC cut we've heard; they're all chilling on Ty's Soundcloud.

The 16-song album will feature Kanye WestWiz KhalifaFutureR. KellyE-40Trey SongzDiddy, Fetty Wap, Rae SremmurdYG and, somehow, even more artists. Producers include DJ Mustard, Metro Boomin, Hit-Boy and Stargate. In October, Ty dropped Airplane Mode, a 10-track mixtape.
