The West Coast hip hop scene received a much-needed shot in the arm when Tyga signed with Young Money. Tyga is one of the many fairly new Los Angeles rappers emerging into the hip hop scene. Since signing with Young Money, Tyga worked his way from the mixtape scene all the way to stardom, once again.
Late in the summer of 2011, Tyga released “Rack City,” which would go on to become a hit single for the rapper during the winter months. Tyga was able to unite several rappers for a star-studded remix of his lead single. Following the delay from the December release and the mid-February release, Tyga released Carless World: Rise of the Last King last night.
On his latest album, Tyga lives up to the Young Money trend of making creative music. The album is notable for such tracks as “Muthafucka Up,” with Nicki Minaj and “Faded.” Tyga also manages to establish himself among the acclaimed “New West” artists, such as Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar, as he has released a full-length studio album.
Less of the album is focused on lyrical ability, with more of Tyga’s album focused on making upbeat, party music. For Tyga fans, this album will be everything they expected and is an overall entertaining album for hip hop fans.
