Tyler Thomas has a dream "Bigger than his ego span." A line from one of his favorite songs on his EP called "Back Again" The Los Angeles native has newly released an EP called "Birds I View" and a clean new visual for "Lincoln Park". We got the chance to discuss his project before release and get an exclusive freestyle. How could you not root for this unshakeable artist? The Freestyle was like a Busta Rhymes inspired flow. Not to mention he has been an influence in this artist life, along with Tribe called Quest, Big L, Pun and Dj Quik. Another favorite song off the EP is called "Young Nigga" which has a dope concept and visuals for this song coming soon.
What inspired you to make this project?
I released this project because I don't want to come out with sporadic songs here and there. I used to do that a lot, this time I wanted the whole project to be released with visuals and be more consistent with my work.
What advice do you have for upcoming artist trying to breakthrough in this industry?
Find something you want to talk about and make sure it's not about yourself. People tend to get in their own way and get writers block. Find a message and spread it.

What's your process like in the studio?
There's really no process. I'm always rapping constantly in my head or writing something down. We can be in the studio and someone is playing around on the keyboard or drums and i just start spitting. It doesn't stop for me.
Who are some West Coast artist you would like to work with?
I would like to work with Nipsey Hustle, Kehlani she has the whole TLC vibe, Dom Kennedy and I would really like to work with DJ Quik. That would be super dope!
