About Tyla Yaweh
Active since the latter half of the 2010s, rapper and singer Tyla Yaweh represents Florida but didn't fully establish himself until after he relocated to Los Angeles and signed with London Entertainment. Tyla made his name with a handful of melodious and downcast tracks before moving in a pop direction with "She Bad" (2018). He then moved to Epic Records for Heart Full of Rage (2019), which had more in common with his earlier material.
Born Tyler Brown, Tyla Yaweh grew up in Orlando. He chose to give music a shot after his mother kicked him out of their house for dealing drugs. While gaining a foothold in Los Angeles, he built interest with a handful of commercially available tracks supported across 2017 by Repost Network and Get Dough. Noticed by Dre London, Post Malone's manager, Tyla consequently signed with London Entertainment (not to be confused with London Records). Before the year was over, he made his London debut with "Drugs & Pain." A handful of singles including "Gemini" and the more pop-oriented "She Bad" followed in 2018.
Through a London-facilitated deal with major-label Epic, Tyla's career shot upward with the 2019 release of Heart Full of Rage. The brief ten-track set contained alternately bleak and boastful tracks produced by the likes of Simon Says, Hector Soundz, and the trio of Garibay, Ramiro Padilla, and Sorry Jaynari. PnB Rock and French Montana made guest appearances. In June 2020, Yaweh paired with Post Malone for the track "Tommy Lee," a song inspired by and featuring the Mötley Crüe drummer. ~ Andy Kellman
