ANGELGOLD is stepping out of her family’s shadow and into her own spotlight.
You saw ANGELGOLD’s TV debut on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood in the explosive fallout scene between A-1 and wife/co-star Lyrica Anderson. She left the people wondering just who was Ty Dolla $ign’s sister?
Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, performer, and choreographer ANGELGOLD makes music with one goal in mind.
She recognized that purpose at a very young age. Growing up in Los Angeles, her bedroom attached to the Griffin family recording studio where dad Lakeside’s Tyrone Griffin and big brothers Ty Dolla $ign and Big TC cut all kinds of music at all hours of the day and night.
By the age of six, she began penning lyrics of her own. Writing became all-consuming. When she wasn’t working on songs, she wrote children’s stories for her school literary magazine. At 10-years-old she first committed those words to tape. She formed a female rap group with her childhood best friend and by 16 -years old she began to sing. College in Connecticut saw her sharpen those chops further. By 2016, she quietly asserted her powerful voice on her own terms with a series of singles Get On It feat. Too $hort, Business produced by Murda Beatz, and No No No feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Big TC, & TeeCee4800. The latter cracked 121K Soundcloud plays as she received acclaim from Idolator, The Fader, FACT Mag, XXL, and more and turned up at SXSW 2016 with an explosive live performance.
“I was always humming and singing around the house when they were trying to
record, and they’d yell at me to be quiet”.
Angel told us about how she learned that life doesn’t always go according to plan.
“I always had a fairytale image of what life is supposed to be like. When you’re younger,
you feel like everything is going to happen as you planned it out.
When those things don’t happen the way you expect, it’s as if you’re dying. A lot of people give up, because their dreams die when they’re young. You can’t stop though. That’s the theme.”
“I feel like it’s time to share who I am. I hid it from my entire family even. It’s been top secret. This is a good place for people to get to know me.”
ANGELGOLD’s single “No No No” is available now on iTunes !
