"You you really went in, you killed that!* TyBless has been in the music business for 10 years. TyBless is in the process of launching his own movement & genre, CLUB-HOP, due to the fact that he's been known to be too raw to be just dance music and it's too danceable to be accepted as hard core Hip-Hop, despite the fact that he can rhyme with as much or more intensity as the next rap artist.
