Ty Perkins aka “Mista Perkins” was born and raised on the hard south side streets of Chicago, Il., and has continued to influence and redefine hip hop & neo soul across the nation. Always on the cutting edge of what’s next to come, Perkins dominates the music scene with his breezy hip hop lyrics and his viral hooks that invoke passion and energy!
Perkins was exposed to music at a young age by his parents. His mom being into R&B and his father a choir director at the family ministry. Music would just seem to flow through him no matter the genre. Having the capability to out rap the typical MC, as well as having the gift of song was more than a blessing to the aspiring artist.
This talent placed Perkins at the top of the Chicago hip hop scene in the late 90’s.
During this time Mista Perkins was wounded in a near-fatal gun shooting that almost ended the young artists life. But still hungry for his sound to be heard by the masses, Perkins took the down-time to write new songs which caught the ear of star creator L.A. Reid and Arista Records.
Perkins decided to pack his bags and move to Los Angeles to pursue what meant most to him. Immediately after touching ground, Perkins began the onslaught and made his mark as one of the top artists in the LA underground scene.
Today Perkins resides in Beverly Hills, Ca. and is currently signed with music mogul Victor Newman (CEO of Win Win Global) who has been a direct influence on the artist career, as well as a good friend of over 6 years. The Win Win Global family is currently working on the first ever solo release on Mista Perkins entitled “The Life & Times of Mista Perkins”.
