After a year of so of tweaking and recording Detroit's Ty Farris (@tyfarris1) & Portland's very own Trox (@iamtrox) on the beats finally release their joint album Room 39. It's 12 songs of intricate picture painting over some soulful yet dirty beats. Songs like "Where I Live" and "Product Of My....." is the backdrop to the feeling of the album. Showing versatility on songs like "Middle Of The Mayhem" and "Ghetto Survivor" featuring Scolla displays strong songwriting. Trox delivers a range of different sounds and elements for Ty to get busy with. Features including arguably the best rapper on the planet Royce Da 5'9 (@Royceda59) and North Carolina's wordsmith Rapper Big Pooh (@RapperBigPooh) compliments Ty and Trox songs perfectly. Room 39 is out on all major digital formats now. Limited run of physical copies and shirts available soon on
