Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Beach House 2’ is both a compliment and a contrast to DJ Mustard’s recent tape ‘Ketchup’: a full-blooded exposition of the young Californian “ratchet” sound, but one more inclined to maximalism rather than minimalism.
The singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer is as talented a musician as he is unrepentant a character, with his lust-filled songs stretching to multiple-part sagas and a significant part of the vibrant production handled by him and other associates under the D.R.U.G.$ group banner. The tape also builds on the original ‘Beach House’ with the Young Jeezy single remix of breakthrough track My Cabana alongside added features from broader talent like Kevin Gates and Juicy J, plus fellow West Coast stars like IAMSU! and Jay Rock.
