Ty Dolla $ign and YG entered the spotlight together in 2010 when the former made a guest appearance on latter's commercial debut single, "Toot It and Boot It."

While Ty credits the collaboration with helping to change his life and jumpstart his recording career, he was initially reluctant to work with his West Coast neighbor. 

"My big homie Big B brought me YG and he was like, 'Yo, I want you to work with this kid.' At first, when I hear his shit, I thought it was weak, I ain't even gon' lie, I said it to his face," Ty told Mass Appeal. "The third song we ever did together was 'Toot It and Boot It' and that's the song that brought me in the game so my opinion definitely didn't fucking matter."

Released on June 8, 2010, "Toot It and Boot It" peaked at No. 67 on the Billboard Hot 100, the first of 15 songs featuring Ty's vocals to make the chart.

Ty and YG have collaborated on numerous occasions since their joint entrance into the game, including "Ex," a single from Ty's newly-released sophomore album, Beach House 3.
