Ty Brasel has dropped the follow-up to his Dove Award-nominated album ‘The Divine Storm’ with Destiny: Vol. 1.
Brasel’s intent? To skyrocket!
The 13-track mixtape glides off the momentum from his prior project which has accumulated more than 5 million streams. Destiny: Vol. 1 is packed with moving anthems and poignant lyrics that examine pain and purpose. Over rhythmic beats and synth melodies, Brasel rehashes his journey inspired by his Memphis upbringing.
“Faith-based hip hop artist Ty Brasel is not afraid to lay everything on the table through his music…” – American Songwriter
“I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a release as much as I am for this mixtape,” says Brasel. “I don’t feel any pressure. [I’m] confident in where the music is at.”
Brasel’s Instagram page erupted when he announced Destiny: Vol. 1. The mixtape magnifies his prowess as a prominent rapper within Christian hip-hop.

Encouragement, Inspiration, and Good Vibes
On Destiny: Vol. 1, each track highlights a specific theme, encapsulating the significance of the mixtape.
The project was developed at the dawn of a global pandemic. It is filled with a fervor comparable to protestors marching at the peak of 2020. Heavy influences by the likes of Kendrick Lamar are easily heard. Brasel delivers candid introspection as a deliberate tactic. His message is that it is okay to fall, but rise up!
“With this project, I wanted to give people music to inspire and motivate them in their life journey,” Brasel explains. “I just want them to walk away in better spirits. The music is fun, energetic, and feels good. I wanted to pass that on to the listeners.”
Tracks like “Amazing” and “All I Got” are testimonies of what is gained through hard work. “On Me (ft. Jenna Wright)” is a feel-good, high-energy song that goes beyond the surface conceptually. The duo explores the idea of navigating the weight and responsibility of your life calling. A host of Ty’s creative cronies are featured including Parris Chariz, J. Monty, 1K Phew, and more. Ty’s labelmate Jay-Way is featured on “Right My Wrongs”.
Overall, the mixtape is a cohesive piece of music, showing pride in honesty and resilience.
“I feel like every artist featured on Destiny: Vol. 1 fit perfectly into the song they were a part of,” stated Brasel. “I chose them based on who I felt would merge into the song well. Plus, I’m a fan of their music. This was fun for me,” he adds.
