How Ty Dolla $ign Fell in Love with J Dilla’s Music

You might know Ty Dolla $ign for his pop hits and his platinum records, but he's a real artist's artist with a deep love of funk, soul, R&B, and hip-hop. When we talked to Ty for our Music Life profile, he broke down in detail how he first discovered legendary hip-hop producer J Dilla and why he loves his music so much.

From hearing Dilla's production for Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, and Janet Jackson to eventually meeting him, Ty had a lot to say about one of his “favorite producers of all time.” Ty also revealed that Knxwledge, who collaborated with Anderson .Paak on the NxWorries project, had recently sent him some beats too.

The Chainsmokers, Migos & More Reveal Their Favorite Superbowl Halftimes Of All Time

In anticipation of Lady Gaga’s halftime performance at this Sunday’s Superbowl, Billboard reached out to several of music’s most notable figures to ask their favorite and most memorable halftime shows from history. From Migos to The Chainsmokers to Mike Will Made It, the music industry’s most recognizable names chimed in to give their best Superbowl throwbacks just in time for this weekend’s game.

Andra Day, Mario and The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall said that, in their opinion, the best halftime show ever was performed by the late Michael Jackson during Superbowl XXVII. Even though Jackson was his favorite, Alex Pall said that from now on, Bruno Mars and Beyonce should take over halftime shows.

“We still don’t know how he teleported around the stadium like he did but it was the most awesome thing ever. But since Michael is gone, we need to just let Beyonce and Bruno do every Super Bowl henceforth, no discussion. I’m pretty sure the entire world would get on board with this plan.”

Jeezy was in agreement with Pall, as he cast his vote for Bruno Mars’ Superbowl XLVIII show. “I like that guy, man. We should get in the studio — I have to hit him up.”

Migos’ Quavo said that Janet Jackson’s Superbowl XXXVIII show was the most memorable, while Chase Bryant chose The Rolling Stones and their Superbowl XL performance.

Finally, Mike Will Made It chose Beyonce as his favorite halftime performer, citing her iconic Superbowl 50 showcase.
