Tyrone Briggs About
Sometimes a talented artist comes along who has the skills to give the legends a run for their money. Staten Island rapper Tyrone Briggs may just be that artist.
Tyrone first began to garner national attention in 2014 when his song ‘Spartacus’ was featured on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 by DJ KaySlay & Tony Touch. Unable to ignore his vicious delivery and songwriting ability, hip-hop taste-makers like XXL, Hot 97 Who’s Next, The Source, Respect Magazine and others began to feature his music. In 2015, Briggs opened for Nas and Drake at Irving Plaza during NBA All-Star Weekend, after winning the Sprite “Thirst for the Boroughs” competition and beating out every artist, from every borough in New York City.
A year later, he released his first EP, “Victorious”, which included songs like ‘Champion’, ‘Get On Up’, and the title track ‘Victorious’ which have been featured in hundreds of television shows, films, movies and online projects. Numerous brands, networks and professional teams including Reebok, Air Jordan, FOX, ESPN, Cadillac, WWE, Monday Night Football, Heineken, Under Armour, Fan Duel, LG, Riot Games, the Utah Jazz, Saucony, CBS Sports, MTV, WGN, State Farm and more have licensed songs from “Victorious”. In 2018, he was tapped by the world-famous Madison Square Garden arena to star in a series of TV commercials to promote the Big East men’s basketball tournament.
Tyrone is planning to release his forthcoming EP “Underdog” later this year and is poised to show the world he is anything but the underdog when it comes to his elite musical talent.
