Emerging new artist Tyga is preparing for his highly anticipated debut album, “No Introduction,” set for release on June 10th. Signed to Pete Wentz’s Decaydance Records, through Travis McCoy’s imprint, Bat Squad, the 18 year old phenom was named “one of the best undiscovered rappers in America” by Vibe Magazine. He performed at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards and can currently be seen in Lil Wayne’s new video “Lollipop,” proving that this star is clearly on the rise.
The forthcoming album entitled “No Introduction” features amazing collaborations with Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes), Lil Wayne, and Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy). Tyga’s hip hop roots blended with his collaborators’ pop/rock vibe to make him a stand out in today’s cluttered musical landscape. The first single, “Coconut Juice,” which features a verse by Travis McCoy is already creating a huge amount of buzz online. The recently shot video was directed by Dale “RAGE” Resteghini (Mims, Soulja Boy) and features cameos including Travis, Pete and Lil Wayne.
Tyga will be featured on MTV’s Spring Break 2008 in Panama City, Florida, scheduled to air the week of March 24th on MTV. Joining an all-star line up of performers for this year’s festivities including Lupe Fiasco, Flo Rida, Paramore, and Panic at the Disco, he will be performing two songs, “Woww” and the current single, “Coconut Juice.” Once again confirming Tyga’s mass appeal, Blender Magazine featured “Woww” as a must-have download track in their March issue.
Tyga will also be accompanying Gym Class Heroes on their Spring 2008 Campus Tour. Beginning April 1st, the tour will be making stops at several college universities throughout the nation. Dates and locations can be viewed below.
