    Tish Hyman

    Tish Hyman has been plotting her debut as a solo artist for some time, and the rollout has gone beautifully thus far. Dedicated: To is a polished introduction, replete with hits like "Dreams" and "Subway Art." The Bronx-born, L.A.-based artist first made her mark as a songwriter for the likes of Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign ("Horses In The Stable"), and is currently touring North America opening for BJ the Chicago Kid.

    Tish already sounds like a star—she approaches songwriting as a craft, treats music as a profession, and has incredible talent. That voice has earned her plenty of comparisons to Lauryn Hill, but that's only one side of her story—Tish can really, really rap, a truth as clear on Dedicated: To as it was when she murdered Sway's 5 Fingers of Death freestyle last year.
