MUSIC: “TC” Tiyon Christian’s “Love’s Assassin” Mixtape

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days now but I’ve been under the weather.  The magnificent songwriter, ‘TC‘ Tiyon Christian (best known for his many videos with one of our faves, Brandy), has released an amazing piece of work titled “Love’s Assassin”. 

As has been the case with other mixtapes we’ve come across lately, TC’s offering bests many of the full studio albums released by top artists in the industry today. It really makes you wonder just have wonderful a fully produced/funded album would be from this wunderkind.

Click here to get the mixtape. Enjoy!

– Kenny , Creative Director
