Backstory: How Kanye West Became The EP on Tyga’s New Album
If you’re thinking Kanye West is executive producing Tyga’s upcoming LP, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, because he’s with Kim’s little sister Kylie, think again. HipHollywood caught up with T-Raww at the launch of his new L.A. Gear sneaker and he told us it all came about a couple years ago, and was pretty organic.
“He really just hit me up one day and was like come by the studio,” explained the 25 year old. “It was like a 3 hour drive but when I got down there I felt like I was in school, and I was happy just to be there and to just learn and watch his creative process. Then much down the line of me coming to the studio and giving my input, he was like I’ll executive produce your album.”
Tyga who is no longer under Lil Wayne’s YMCMB label, has also said the album will be much darker than his previous projects. “He heard things in the music that I didn’t hear or wasn’t looking for,” Tyga told The Low Down with Diana Madison . “It’s going to show people the potential and get to the roots when I started doing music, the feeling I wanted to create when I first started.”
The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty will be Tyga’s 4th studio album and is currently scheduled to be released sometime in 2015 independently by Last Kings Entertainment.
