Ty Dolla $ign Covers Fader’s Summer Music Issue

Rapper-singer Ty Dolla $ign is a busy man but he took some time out to have an in-depth chat with Fader magazine about his music, dating and the main love of his life. And did we mention he’s also one of the cover stars for the mag’s Summer Music issue?

Looking like a man of authority on the cover, the California native shows his softer side and opens up about his search for finding his true love.

“Sometimes I just feel like with what I’m doing — it’s not meant for me,” he shares with the magazine. “But I’m definitely not cynical, and I’m not against it. When I see people like Wiz and Amber, they just be FaceTiming and s— — I want that.”

“I love seeing love. I had this one girl that I was really tryna go hard with, but it wasn’t it,” he continues. “I really was on my faithful s— but once I broke out of it, I just went wild. And then I made ‘Beach House 1,’ you know what I’m saying?”

However, one girl who is the main love of Ty’s life is his daughter Jailynn. Soon to enter the fourth grade, Jailynn is the one girl that the ‘Paranoid’ singer admits he’s puts all his energies into even when he’s broke.

“I love Jailynn so much. She’s the best daughter. I bet every dad says that,” he says. “At first, I felt like I wasn’t all the way ready. Some birthdays would come around and I wouldn’t be able to get the most, but now I can get them anything they need. Every time I leave her, I’m like, Aww, f—. I wanna be with her at all times.”

As far as his music career, Ty Dolla $ign is an artist who’s just trying to make it in the R&B/rap game. But even though he’s a level-headed artist, it doesn’t mean he has to make music that’s so heavy and deep. Ty tells the mag that he’s into making party music too.

“I’m not tryna promote being the best f—ing American man,” he said. “I’m promoting partying and having fun and being that type of American. I don’t wanna hurt nobody’s feelings. I’m not gonna front and act like your boyfriend. I’m out here, you know what I’m saying? I’m about to go on tour! It’s like running for the presidency…except without a wife.”

Along with Ty Dolla $ign, Sam Smith is also one of the other cover stars for the Fader magazine’s Summer Music issue.
