Ty Dolla $ign examined his feelings for his brother Big TC, who is serving a life sentence for murder, on 2015 album Free TC. One track featured TC on the phone from prison while an accompanying documentary followed in 2016.
Speaking in a new interview with The Guardian, Ty Dolla revealed that there will be no mention of TC on his next album, Beach House 3, after his music led to unwanted attention for his brother on the inside.
“If he was out we’d probably be making songs together right here in the studio,” he is quoted as saying. “After Free TC, he just got hella attention and something happened where it got back to them and he ended up getting locked in the hole for a long ass time, so right now there isn’t a song on Beach House 3 with him.”
