“Sacramento Weirdo” Tynethys Teams Up With Issue For “Lil B,” A Tribute To The Based God

Noisey Premieres The First Single From The Rapper/Producer/Singer’s Forthcoming EP

Critical Praise for Tynethys:

“…a new wave of pillowy-soft West Coast tunes.” – Pitchfork

“…proves that math is for losers and rap is awesome.” – Noisey

“…an airy, narcotic project that floats along and passes in a blur.” –The FADER 

“Tynethys, aka Nicky Samuel, carries on the mantle of where that ‘cloud rap’ hype is headed, mixing analogue tricks seen and heard on old televisions and VCRs that brings out the ghosts from yesterday’s machines for the new synth terrains of today’s sonic atmospheres and introspective verses” – Impose Mag

“There’s the frazzled electro of ‘Stress’, a Prince impression on ‘Trackstar’s and a few forays into gauzy, grayscale R&B — something for all moods and all highs.” – FACT Mag

“…it seems only a matter of time before Tynethys blows up.” – ACCLAIM Mag 

The Song:

Cloud rap pioneer Tynethys has teamed up with E-40’s masked son, Bay Area rapper/producer Issue, for “Lil B,” the first single from his upcoming untitled EP Premiered via Noisey, the “Sacramento weirdo,” as FACT Mag calls him, goes Super-Saiyan with pitch-shifted vocals echoing throughout and some very necessary ad-libs added atop the eerie production by Issue. Complete with a sinister bassline and heavy synths, Issue incorporates a progressive, futuristic vibe that parallels Tynethys’ “hyphy-spirited based freestyle,” as Noisey calls it.

Tynethys is known for his airy, cannabinoid style of music, referred to as “post-Yeezus” by FACT Mag. Last month, Entertainment Weekly debuted “Alphabet City,” a loose single featuring Main Attrakionz, an Oakland duo with whom Tynethys collaborated with on the Main Attrakionz x Tynethysmixtape last fall. Earlier this year, Tynethys released Thyluxe, an album he wrote and produced in-full. “This one goes,” said Okayplayer, “with about all the synths and 808s one can handle, and arranged in ways you’ve never heard before.”

Tynethys Background:

To hear him tell it, Sacramento’s Tynethys’ (pronounced “Teen-theez”) musical style is like “selling crack in a Sub-Zero outfit.” For the MC/producer, Mortal Kombat is just one of his inspirations, along with rap heroes Mac Dre, Kid Cudi, and T-Nutty. Producing and writing his songs in the hours between midnight and sunrise, Tynethys is a jovial, pensive creator with a stoner’s laugh and street vernacular. Tyne’s style is a fuzzy free-form that speaks not only to his worldview from his bedroom, but many like him. With Thyluxe, a follow-up to last year’s Lost Angeles album, Tynethys believes he’s hitting his best stride. “I feel like it is the truest representation of me. I did it without trying too hard.” Besides his own work, Tynethys appeals to many collaborators. On October 22, he released a project with Oakland duo Main Attrakionz. “I really fucked with these dudes. They came to Sacramento, and I showed up at their hotel room,” recalls Tyne, who arrived with a portable studio. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar, Raekwon and Evidence, it’s only a matter of time until Tynethys transports his sound around the globe.
