New Video By TYTE SpliffJit & C Stunna “Whole 9”

Born Jeffrey Williams in Tallahassee, FL, rising hip hop phenom TYTE is an alchemist. Throughout his life, he’s managed to not only transform his adversity into music gold but also to transform the minds of his listeners with his no-nonsense, effortless flow. Repping the “Gunshine State” scene under the Slip N Slide Records label, TYTE’s instantly recognizable voice penetrates eardrums and demands attention. His commanding vibe and lyrics resonate powerfully in the TikTok era, flowing seamlessly from a lineage of great Florida rappers. Hits like “Ask Around” and “FYP” hype listeners whether they’re scrolling on their phones or rolling their way back home. And it all comes from the hard-knock, street-wise, genuine experience of his upbringing and teen years. This is a refreshing return to raw, real, hard-core hip-hop. Listen if you want in on it.

Adding a few more angles to the picture, collaborators SpliffJit and C Stunna drop a couple of fire verses over the classic bass-heavy beat by Ethan “Walk” Jason Walker.
