Tyla Yaweh is a rockstar in all aspects of his life. You may have first heard of Tyla through his breakout single “Gemini,” and he’s unleashed nothing but bangers since. The Orlando, Florida native is currently signed to Epic Records and London Entertainment, with an unmatched friendship with pop star Post Malone. Most recently, Tyla stopped by Power 106 for an exclusive interview with DJ Felli Fel.
Speaking on how he initially linked with Post Malone, Tyla states, “It’s crazy because 2015, I opened for Posty his first three times in Florida. Ever since that, it was just crazy. After that, I drove from Florida to LA [in 2015]. Moved out here, then two or three years later I linked back up with Dre.”
Tyla and Dre actually linked at the first Rolling Loud Bay Area in Oakland. Tyla goes on to reveal the rant he did on Instagram about having no managers and no label — which attracted his current manager Tes. This landed him with Dre London’s camp, who manages Posty. They’re the ones who told Tyla he could be a star, while Post wanted to sign him as an artist personally. To this day, he describes the team as “family-oriented.”
Felli goes on to ask about some of Tyla’s greatest memories on tour with Post. Tyla begins to reminisce on the South Africa leg, London (Dre’s home), along with all the festivals overseas. He will be joining Post Malone for the second leg of his Runaway Tour as he prepares to release his first studio album. When asked about what’s next for the young rapper, Yaweh responded, “I’m about to drop my first album soon, probably next year or in the beginning of next year.”
Since gaining recent success, Tyla Yaweh has gone on to work with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. But Tyla reveals two artists he’d love to work with he hasn’t yet: Young Thug and Drake. As far as now, fans can expect an explosive fortchoming single with Los Angeles’ own YG. Check out the rest of Felli’s interview with the talented young rapper above!
