We had the good fortune of connecting with Ty Harriz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ty, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
There is no real time table on success. As someone that’s been making music since they were 16 I know this personally. I’ve had my highest highs and more lows than anything. I’ve had hiatuses and sabbaticals and I’ve also toured the country along with performing for consultants for major labels. When it happens, it happens. Just keep pushing.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a independet hip hop artist based out of the Raleigh, North Carolina area. I understand that when most people think hip hop they think it’s all tiktok dances but I am a lyricist. I was bathed in hip hop at a early age by my mother and I haven’t looked back since. Im most proud of my career all around. From my writing abilities, to my energy on stage, and to the respect I’ve garnered from years of grinding in and out of state. It was no overnight process, til this day its far from easy but I never asked for it to be. I’ve overcame most of my challenges by ultimately being headstrong, thinking of my daughter and ultimately wanting to keep the dream alive for her. One of the greatest lessons I learned on this journey is being yourself is something nobody wants you to be but something you need to be to get farther especially in this industry full of clones. And last but not least what I want people to remember is, I never quit. I pushed through it all and when it’s all said and done, I’ll be remembered as great.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My daughter Alayah. She’s been the light of my life since i was 22 years old and only shines brighter as she gets older. I was going no where fast before she made her way into this world and I thank god for her. When I found out I was gonna be a father it gave me a new energy in all things music and in life. If anyone deserves all the credit for where I am now besides me, It’s daddy’s number one fan.
