Ty Dolla $ign’s anticipated album Free TC drops on Friday and HipHollywood has all the details about the project and what exactly it’s being made for.

During 92.3’s The Real Show, the rapper, who recently dropped the hot new track “LA” with Brandy and Kendrick Lamar, explained that the project is for his brother. “It’s not just about giving me money because I put out a project that has a gang of dope songs that you will enjoy. It’s about a bigger purpose.”

“I called it Free TC because my little brother’s name is TC, he’s locked up for something he didn’t do,” he told HH. “And what we are going to do with this money from this project is put it back into his case.”

The rapper continued, “Also we are going to raise awareness around the whole world about racial and social injustice, mass incarceration, everything that is going on with our people that you see right now on the Internet.”

The rapper also says that this is “my best project yet.”

Free TC is available on Friday; will you be picking it up?

As the #MeTooMovement continues to stay relevant around the world and the TimesUp campaign continues to grow, women are starting to speak out about making less money than their male co-stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross makes significantly less money than her black-ish co-star, Anthony Anderson, and now is fighting for equal pay.  Per the report, “Ellis Ross feels that if she isn’t brought up to Anderson’s level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.”

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
