8. TiRon, “Ketchup” (Self-released). Los Angeles’ best rapper flies beneath the radar. - L.A Times


Tiron is one of the newer kids on the block, but this collection of work titled "Ketchup" (as in catch up) shows his diverse lyrical and songwriting ability. - BET


The latest mixtape from one of the best up and coming artists on the West Coast planet. Yea I said it. TiRon is stupid dope and you’re a fool if you’ve been sleeping. This tape is a perfect way to catch up Ketchup (see what he did right there?) though. - 2dopeboyz


Like I said, he’s reminiscent of a young Kanye when he was trying to make us relate to him instead of envying him for having designer clothes, hurt haircuts and a girlfriend who worships Sinead O’Connor. If anything this man is gonna make rappers envy his originality and concepts like “Why didn’t I think of that?” Which really embodies the spirit of hip-hop: who can bring something new and relevant to the table without sacrificing their integrity?

- XXL Mag


Sounds like : All of his influences wrapped up in one mixed with the life of a black kid that grew up in a melting pot. - BET

Bio


TiRon is a young musician that has worked with the likes of Pacific Division, Blu, Dom Kennedy, etc. The year of 2009 is going to be a monstrous year for TiRon. He has already been picked for the BET Rookie Class of 2009, and he has also been the Hip Hop Official Artist of the Week. From receiving an outstanding album rating on OkayPlayer to even being named in the LA Times' "Quarterly Report: Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2009, Thus Far," TiRon's Ketchup is definitely making for a lot of press. He is much more than a hip-hop emcee; TiRon is a true student and connoisseur of music in general. With his debut mix tape, "Handshakes & Pounds," he recorded "Never Happy" (produced by Madlib) where he shows the universal truth that we all as people go through: wanting more than they truly have. He recently was on the "The Exactly Presents: Your New Favorite Mixtape" with his dope single, "Throwing My Money" where we explains the struggles of a young man trying to balance buying new clothes and shoes and keeping the bills paid.
Ketchup has an array of music produced by Sa-Ra Creative Partners, Cook Classics, Swift-D, and others. The subject matter on Ketchup has something for everyone to feel. Ketchup is more than just "feel-good" music; Ketchup is a collective of songs to take you on an auditory journey that deals with the life and times of a young musician that has the gift of music for his listeners to feel on a real level
