Album Review

With a CD sticker that boasts "the hottest export out of Compton since N.W.A," in actuality, Tyga shares more in common with Kanye, Soulja Boy, or T.I. than Eazy, Ice Cube, or Dre. His music could hardly be considered gangsta, despite his mean streets roots. Instead, the slick, polished pop-rap of No Introduction has the widest (or most mainstream) appeal possible. Aided by members of Fall Out Boy and their clique, Tyga enlisted executive producer Pete Wentz to carve out a niche of music that appeals equally to fans of emo-pop ballads and hip-hop party anthems, with beats provided by Patrick Stump, Stress, Evan Big Evil, and S*A*M & Sluggo. Pubescent girls looking for a new crush will be swooning over the tattooed bad boy with a soft side, as he gets vulnerable in an innocent tale of heartache ("Pillow Talkin'") and romanticizes puppy love in an updated appropriation of Slick Rick's "Teenage Love" ("First Timers.") Sweet lovin' isn't the only thing on his mind, though. His ultimate mission is to party and make people move, and he does just that with "Coconut Juice" and "Woww." "Hold your cup high move ya body/If you're twisted scream it loudly/Say hey yay yay hey — hey yay yay" won't win him a Pulitzer and "Woww ever heard a sound like this?/Who you know that'll put it down like this/Woww ever move a crowd like this?/I don't think nobody sound like this" might make you wonder if he owns a radio or understands irony, but his voice is smooth, his attack is skillful, and regardless of the inherent lack of depth, the disc is a fun and easygoing romp, fitting for a Friday drive home or a trip to the club.

Tyga-No Introduction

New rapper Tyga has some connections, being the cousin of Gym Class Heroes lead vocalist, Travis McCoy and signed to Lil’ Wayne’s Young Money Ent. He proves to show his talent with No Introduction. Diamond Life: Jamming guitars and rock influenced production, is slightly overpowering to Tyga’s voice. Vocally he gets lost in the production and you really have to listen for the lyrics, but the energy is there as the album gets off to a nice start. Patty Crash brings a unique hook as the track builds well. 3.5/5 Coconut Juice: Featuring cousin Travis McCoy, the lead single is a fun feel good club party cut. With a mainly clap production and building synths, drums and other instruments at the quite catchy hook. It has a great party vibe and really heats up dance floors, as cousin McCoy spits at the breakdown with “so what he’s my cousin, sexy runs in the fam”. 4/5 Supersize Me: Uptempo and fast flowing, as the hectic synths sound like robotic movements gone crazy. A club cut that is more fun and youthful, but only decent. 3/5 Don’t Regret It Now: Patrick Stump produced and featured, could be a passable attempt at radio success. The lyrics however are quite deep, something you wouldn’t expect on such a synth happy uptempo track that has a mtv ready hook and production from Stump. “cause bein an only child can have you feelin desperate, in need of attention, every second, listen to the man of the house you never get it, he left without a smile but you never miss him, but when you reminiscin, you wish you had a father”, spits young Tyga on this feel good yet deep track. 4/5 Pillow Talkin: Piano driven production sets the tone for the track, as Tyga plays a vulnerable teen who figures that he and his lady should be “pillow talking” rather than arguing. He dives into the metaphors of a broken relationship, as the teen girl fanbase of Tyga will love this. It's a solid song about a relationship that works off of its pop appeal. 3.5/5 AIM: Teen topic that relates to many younger aged listeners, the track is about AOL Instant Messager, which is in short AIM. A banging production that is heavy on the drums and bass, as Tyga repeats “she don’t know my name, she just know me by my aim”. Decent banger, that features the line, “always on point like Ginobili”. 3/5 First Timers: With its piano laced production and light hearted feel, Tyga speaks to the ladies once again. Another pop appealing track, similar to “Pillow Talkin”, except not as heartfelt, it has a super pop hook. Solid track that will appeal to young teen girls. 3/5 Cartoonz: Interesting and creative concept here, Tyga uses all the cartoons in the book to create a super hero like story. While the production is mediocre and repetitive, it's a decent track that creatively uses other cartoons to describe his life. Clever, but the production takes away from this. 3/5 Summertime: Stealing Will Smith’s hit, “Summertime” for the hook and topic, Tyga spits over dazed keys and smooth chilled feel. It’s an enjoyable track, but it bites too much off of Will Smith to be taken seriously. Decent track. 3/5 Press 7: Once again piano keys and guitar rock hook, the hook is just mediocre, intended to aim at the younger audiences. Although it’s actually a breakup track, it has a happy demeanor to it, as Tyga lightly delivers the message to her, through hook and lyrics. 3/5 Woww: Club ready “Woww” features some semi-hyphy beats that pumps with bass and has some fat synths. It is meant to get you moving and it serves its purpose, however lyrically it is just mediocre. 3/5 2 A.M.: The most reflective track that shows Tyga pondering thoughts that happened recently. One of those moments, where it is quiet and late (2 A.M. in this case), Tyga just wonders about life and what he’s been through. As surging synths glide nicely with Tyga’s mature lyrics, it works well. 4/5 EST. (80’s Baby): Blasts of synth and hyped production with keys, the production on here is well crafted. Pretty much a freestyle, Tyga just goes off with this ender to proclaim that he was almost “est. in the nineties, but I’m still an 80’s baby”. Solid finisher. 3.5/5 I Am: Weezy joins Tyga on this mellow bumping cut, decent bonus. 3/5 Tattoo filled youngster Tyga delivers a decent performance with his debut. It’s evident that his audience works really well for the MTV crowds. In terms of production, topics and vibe, it's a young audience type of album that has the Fall Out Boy crew producing the album. With club banger “Coconut Juice”, its what you expect from a young artist, a track that is catchy and high energy. “Woww” isn’t nearly as addicting, but a solid track that will get people dancing, as “Coconut Juice” is a summer themed party track that features a feel good hook. Despite the club bump, he shows he has lyrics, as “Don’t Regret It Now” features deep lyrics that could possibly be taken as merely a pop/radio attempt, if it weren’t for the lyrics, while “2 A.M.” has Tyga wondering about life. “Supersize Me” is raucous, “Cartoonz” is clever, “Summertime” and “AIM” just mediocre. He goes into relationship cuts for the ladies, with the heartbroken “Pillow Talkin”, light hearted yet breakup cut “Press 7” and “First Timers” is a love track. Leadoff track “Diamond Life” has some overpowering production and he gets lost in it, but his voice will grow stronger with maturity. Concepts aren’t bad, his flow works and overall the album is solid for a weekend and summer bang. More for the younger audience, Tyga appeals to MTV mainly, and does a solid job with his debut. The freestyle finishing “EST. (80’s Baby)” ends things on a grand note. MTV crowd check it out, its at a fair price of 7.99. Rating 7 out of 10

Tyga

Tyga does a great job on his debut. Not many filler tracks on this album which i am happy for. My favorite tracks are I am and Coconut Juice. I look forward to seeing much more of him in the future.

Tyga-No Introduction

This album is crack, even though majority of the songs are/were on his myspace page, the album is really good. I love the collabo's with Travis, Patty, Patrick, and Lil Wayne. He really did his thing for his first album. I commend him on that!

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With a rangy set of friends from Fall Out Boy to Lil Wayne, it was obvious from the start that Tyga was not your everyday rapper from Compton. After recording a mixtape and promoting it around the city, Tyga ran into his cousin, Gym Class Heroes member Travis McCoy, in the Flight Club L.A. sneaker shop. Their conversation went from shoes to rappers, and as Travis' group went from unknowns to MTV stars, he would always remember that talk and his cousin's unique style. Travis signed Tyga to his Bad...
