“I was thinking about asking my fans, like after hearing this album and hearing what I did with this, who would y’all wanna hear me produce?” Ty said. “I didn’t ask the question yet.”

“I would love to do a whole album with like YG for instance,” Ty goes on, “or I would love to do a whole album with SZA and produce her whole stuff … she’s one of the hardest. It’s so many, I could produce so many. It’s just gonna take time for sure.”

Ty recently worked with SZA on her 2020 single, “Hit Different.” He’s also been featured on YG’s last two albums, 2018’s Stay Dangerous, and this year’s My Life 4 Hunnid.
