Ben Chijioke aka Ty is one of UK Black music’s true innovators and popularisers. His debut recording was on one of I.G. Culture’s legendary One Drop Inter Outer albums. He has worked with the likes of Tony Allen, Terri Walker, Natasha Williams, Afro Reggae and Estelle and has featured on more albums and singles than could easily be listed. He has been invited to share the mic with luminaries such as Talib Kweli, De La Soul and Platinum Pied Pipers. He has been namechecked by Lily Allen and has performed with Damon Albarn. He has been nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, has won numerous Hip Hop Awards, has even presented awards at the Nigerian Music Awards in Lagos. He has taken his vision of hip hop culture into prisons and schools and has acted as a spokesman for his musical culture in the studios of Newsnight. His three albums for Big Dada were “Awkward” (2001), “Upwards” (2003) and “Closer” (2006). He has since released a fourth album, “Special Kind Of Fool” with BBE.
