Tye Cooper is on the grind

Tye was born Tye Cooper on October 9th, 1993 in Providence, Rhode Island. Considered as the “Creative Capitol”, Tye grew up in the smallest state in the country with big dreams to successfully flourish as an entertainer since he was a child. Growing up in Providence for Tye has actually been a blessing in disguise. In a city like Providence, everyone to some extent knows each other so it wasn’t that difficult for Tye to adopt this as a marketing tool early on to make friends later on expanding those relationships. A kindred spirit who can walk in any room and make everyone feel like they made the right decision to be out at night. Without having a to say too much.

When did you discover your love for music and when did you decided you was going to dedicate yourself to it?

I discovered my my love for music at the tender age of 6. 1999 is a year I remember vividly as a child and actually one of my favorite eras growing up! My mother and father contributed heavily by playing a lot of Hip Hop & R&B. My mom put me on to a lot of shit early and I am so thankful of her because my library of music has so many depths to it. Artists like Anita Baker, El Debarge, Angela Winbush, Heavy D, The Notorious B.I.G., 112, etc.. my mom helped me understand R&B on such a deep level all from just listening. She didn’t really hold back if the songs were explicit. My dad influenced me with more of like the gritty side of Hip Hop. No Limit Records, G unit, the diplomats, Shyne, and so forth! It took me until I was 8 to actually embrace writing out rhymes that I thought made the most sense in the world. I was the kid in 3rd grade at the lunch tables emulating what I seen on Rap City The Basement and the cool thing about the experience was that I wasn’t the only child at school with that level of dedication.

Have you ever had writers block ? and how did you get through it?

Absolutely! I have definitely experienced writers block before. It’s almost inevitable to experience but there are so many remedies to dealing with writers block. It’s actually a normal thing most experienced and even newly found artists go through. For me, simply taking my mind off the topic can be of help. Focusing too much what to rhyme the previous word with the next one, making sure the words fit the cadence and subject matter can be exhausting. I like to play games like NBA 2K & Call of duty, which actually help me come up with more things to say cause I actually listen to beats and freestyle what I’m currently looking at. Shifting your focus to something equally convenient to the mind like meditating, reading a book, or just simply coming back to the track or line is a great start when under the impression of writers block.

What do you think about the Rhode Island music scene?

I have so much love for the scene in Rhode Island because it’s forever growing. I did not get on the scene until late 2012. I was 19 years old and even then the scene was in a place where there were open mic events that turned into opportunities for the artist frequently participating to do their own shows, even open up for an relatively known artist. I got to meet those that came before me rapping by always being at the open mic events or casually getting invites to other things going on in the city. I have so much faith in the Rhode Island music scene becoming a market for music in the future! There are so many great artists in Providence. Hence, the creative capitol.

Can you tell us about The World is yours, and what inspired it?

Yes! My new single The World Is Yours that just came out is special because it symbolizes my love for the movie Scarface and the infamous ‘The World Is Yours’ statue! A statue I dream of owning in one of my homes in the near future. The scene where Al Pacino is looking out the window and as he’s looking out, a blimp comes across the sky with a sign that says, “The World Is Yours”. I shot the video In the heart of Beverly Hills and LA at a location Lil Wayne and Jim Jones wind up filming at right after I wrapped up!

Do you have any shows coming up that we can purchase tickets for? Where can we get tickets ?

Yes! I have a few good shows coming up! August 20th I’ll be performing at the Strand with Method Man and Redman! Tickets are available online or at the strands box office. I also have a show with Busta Rhymes over Labor Day weekend September 3rd in Worcester, MA! Tickets for that are available at www.cultivatorscup.com

What are your top 3 pieces of advice that you can give to another artist on the come up?

1. Never Give up2. Stay ready so you don’t gotta get ready3. Consistency is key

I love how you put effort into the quality of music and music videos. what is your take on the importance of investing in yourself?

Thank you! I grew up watching video music box and Yo! MTV Raps and the quality of music and videos meant so much to me. I used to study the directors, guys like Jesse Tererro, Hype Williams, Chris Robinson, and Benny Boom, hoping one day I get the opportunity to work alongside them on other music videos besides my own. I see myself as an director before musician so the quality of the visual got to be up to par with the cinematic experience I’ve experienced growing up in Hip Hop. It’s very important to know your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to your craft because by the time you start investing in yourself, (financially) you’ll have the experience and resources you need to flourish.

Diddy changed his name multiple times as he evolved would you ever change your name from Messy Tye to something else and what's the story behind Messy Tye ?

Yes! Becoming an household name has always been a long term goal of mine. I changed my name from Messy Tye to Tye Cooper, which is my first and last name in 2019 when I signed to an independent record label. The name behind Messy Tye goes back to when I was in High School, so like 2010. I was really inspired by this comedian/rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana who was tragically killed after leaving his baby shower. At the time, it was something that really disturbed me because I was having a child that year and the thought alone after pictures of him moments after getting shot surfaced on the internet. His name was Messy Mya, and his energy was amazing! It was such a shame I didn’t get to meet him or have awareness of him until he died. It wasn’t until a month later when his son was born on the same day as his and that’s when I made the decision to go by Messy Tye, with the intent to keep his memory alive.

When can we expect a new album ?

Very soon! ‘This Part Of My Life Is Called’ is pretty much done. I’m just having a lot of fun traveling and promoting the brand in other ways besides music. I just got sponsored by a liquor brand called Peak 7 Vodka. There are some more visuals in the chamber to release.

Leveling up can be hard as hell emotionally, mentally, financially and a lot of the time we cant do it with without our team backing us up is there anyone that you want to shout out and give props to?

Hell yeah! First and foremost, I’d like to give a shout out to RemiTV media for the constant support each and every time I’m on the move! I’d like to shout out Dan Murphy of Silent Reminder for doing the BTS objectives nobody sees and wants to do but has to be done! I wanna give a shout out to HAUS PVD! My videographers who go through hell and back to make sure the quality of visual is nothing less than greatness! I’d like to give a shout-out to Peak 7 Vodka! Last but not least, the entire city of Providence!

Whats next for you ?

The best has yet to come! More music. More merch. More traveling. More WINS! I’ll be sure to continue documenting it.

Where can we find you and watch your videos and hear your music ?
