PRESS RELEASE:

Ty Dolla $ign Campaign Tour With Special Guests Kent Jones and SWIDT*
- New Zealand 2017

Mai FM, Double Block and Urban Touring are thrilled to announce the return of one of hip hop’s hottest artists. Ty Dolla $ign is coming back to New Zealand and Australia for his Campaign Tour with special guests Kent Jones* and SWIDT* in January 2017. Tickets are on sale Friday December 2 at 9.00am.

Since featuring on YG’s 2010 smash, ‘Toot It and Boot It’, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Ty Dolla $ign has fast become one of hip-hop’s most highly demanded collaborators and solo artists.

Before releasing his first studio album, Ty Dolla $ign had two of 2014’s biggest songs - ‘Paranoid’ featuring B.o.B and ‘Or Nah’ featuring Wiz Khalifa from his Beach House EP. The EP's production credits include DJ Mustard, D'Mile, Young Chop and Ty Dolla $ign himself. It also features guest appearances by French Montana, Trey Songz, Twista, Jay Rock, Travis Scott and Fredo Santana among others.

His latest offering, CAMPAIGN, features appearances by Future, Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Migos and more. Highlights include the already released ‘Campaign (Feat. Future)’, ‘3 Wayz (feat. Travis Scott)’, ‘Zaddy’ and ‘No Justice’, which features Ty’s brother Big TC.

Joining Ty Dolla $ign on his first New Zealand visit (Auckland and Christchurch shows only) is Kent Jones, who earned his cred as a producer before taking his music to the masses. After working with Ace Hood and DJ Traphouse, he was called up to the majors by DJ Khaled. He is now signed to We the Best Entertainment as a triple threat, producer, singer, and rapper. Jones released his single, ‘Don't Mind’ and appeared alongside Ace Hood and Vado on Khaled's cut ‘365’. The latter landed on the NBA 2K16 video game soundtrack. ‘Don't Mind’ went on to be one of the biggest hits in 2016, rising into the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, hitting number #1 on the Rap charts and surpassing over 162 million streams and counting.

New Zealand’s own future of hip hop, SWIDT (See What I Did There), will open the shows in Christchurch and Auckland. SWIDT is a critically-acclaimed 5-piece from Onehunga featuring MC’s SPYCC and INF, Boomer Tha God, and producers JAMAL and SmokeyGotBeatz.

Auckland’s Jess B+ will also appear at the Auckland show. Though her flow is uniquely her own, her sound is unmistakably new wave with its roots strongly grounded in old school hip hop smoothed over by an urban Kiwi style that distinguishes the New Zealand Hip hop scene from all others.

Mai fm’s DJ Sir-Vere will be a special guest at all New Zealand shows.

In what promises to be the most explosive hip hop show of the year, this is one essential tour not to be missed!
