And thanks to the hard work of the folks at Pinkfish, Malaysians can now see Tyga’s live performance of his many bops including ‘Taste‘, ‘Ayo‘, ‘Ice Cream Man‘ and ‘Go Loko‘!
But for those of you who are still unfamiliar with this Compton-born wordsmith, here’s what the hype is all about:
1. Tracks with amazing beats and infectious grooves
Rappers are a dime a dozen in contemporary music. But what sets Tyga apart from others is his unique blend of multiple music genres including trap, hip-hop and even some hints of R&B. Combined with simple bass beats and catchy rapping hooks, these elements make Tyga’s music impossible to dislike!
One example of a track that showcases Tyga’s signature style is ‘Ice Cream Man‘. Released in 2011 as part of his ‘Well Done 2’ mixtape, the song features an upbeat sound that utilises a sample of the classic ice cream truck jingle. With Tyga’s lively flow and lyrics about his musical success, this song has remained a fan-favourite among many others in his discography even after a whole decade!
Another song that embodies Tyga’s special musical traits is ‘Sunshine‘, a feel-good hip-hop number featuring Jhené Aiko and Pop Smoke that mixes both electronic and organic sounds. This track perfectly encapsulates Tyga’s straightforward delivery and carefree personality, making it another fave among die-hard fans and a club anthem among non-fans too.
But don’t just take it from us; even his chart numbers and collaborations prove how amazing his music is! 👇
2. Chart-breaking records and high-profile collabs for days!
To dive deep into his success as a musician, one only needs to look back to 2008 when he released his first single ‘Coconut Juice‘ which features Travie McCoy, his cousin and frontman of the rap rock band, Gym Class Heroes. Not too long after, Tyga gained the attention of famous rapper Lil Wayne who signed him onto his label, Young Money Entertainment.
From then on, there’s been no turning back for Tyga as he moved to major-label stardom with Billboard-charting albums including 2012’s ‘Careless World: Rise of the Last King‘, 2013’s ‘Hotel California‘ and his latest Platinum-certified album ‘Legendary‘, released in 2019.
It also helps that he’s kept busy by collaborating with other chart-topping veterans including Snoop Dogg, Drake, Kanye West and particularly, Chris Brown himself for the hit single ‘Ayo‘ in 2015.
You can also catch him sharing his star power with mainstream newcomers too, as he has performed together with newer artists such as Megan Thee Stallion on the song ‘Freak‘ and with Blxst and Ty Dolla $ign on the former’s 2021 buzz single ‘Chosen‘.
