On July 1, Ty Dolla $ign will release the follow-up to his amazing 2012 mixtape, Beach House. The best thing about Beach House 2, besides the music, is that it’s arriving just in time for summer. Releasing a mixtape titled Beach House in October might fly in the never-ending summer of Los Angeles, but the NYC-based XXL staff couldn’t help but think we weren’t listening to Ty$’s music in its intended context last year (Hurricane Sandy rolled around just as we were starting to get into it). Anyway, Ty$ swung through the XXL offices yesterday to play us BH2, and we can say with confidence that it will probably play soundtrack to weekend getaways across the country all summer. In short, it's awesome. And since he seems to be an expert on all things beach house, we asked Ty what his essential items were for a weekend getaway at said beach house. Here’s what he’s bringing.
