Ty Dolla $ign -- aka Ty$ -- is one of our favorite R&B singers. He also has a great name. Danielle Bacher had a wild night with him. He's on Atlantic Records and also wrote, produced, and sang on Y.G.'s hit "Toot It and Boot It."
So, we were pumped for the listening party for his latest mixtape, the DJ Drama hosted Beach House 2, out on July 1st. The listening party was held at Paramount Studios in West Hollywood last night, and there was to be something called "potcorn."
Santa Monica Blvd. was packed with cars and people, a party after the supreme court overturned Proposition 8. (Yay!) From the outside, you'd never guess the weathered and nondescript building housed a high-end recording studio.
While we waited for stragglers, we drank free cocktails and listened to popular Ty$ songs like "Tricks" and "Weekend," off his 2012 collaborative mixtape Whoop!, with Joes Moses and ratchet producer extraordinaire DJ Mustard ("Rack City," "I'm Different").
Before long there was a big crowd, including many beautiful women (especially the bartender, no T-Pain). We also saw genre stars like DJ Mustard and, cloaked in his hooded white pull-over sweater, R&B singer Mario ("Let Me Love You"). Also in attendance was Wiz Khalifa ("Black & Yellow"), who's featured on Beach House 2. Apparently he couldn't wait for the potcorn, because he was sparking countless blunts.

Just after 9 pm Ty$ -- dressed in all black with blunt and drink in hand -- briefly introduced Beach House 2 and played the mixtape. There was ton of energy, and Ty$ and his crew smiled and danced. The heat and the weed smoke was thick, so much so that some people left the room.
