Tyga discusses the many omissions from Cash Money artists on his new album. He says he incorporated features that complimented the songs organically.
In a recent interview Tyga spoke about the Tupac feature he was to secure for the track “Hit ‘Em Up.” He also acquired features from Rick Ross, Game, Future, 2 Chainz, and more. It is very surprising to us that notables such as: Drake, Birdman, nor Nicki Minaj make an appearance. With that said Lil Wayne of course makes an appearance on “500 Degrees.” Tyga spoke with MTV about his decision to leave many of his teammates off the LP.
“I just make it organically, feel me,” said Tyga, revealing that he did want to work with Minaj, but the collaboration never got off the ground. “I had a track that I wanted Nicki on, but it just didn’t work out.”
Tyga expressed that he wanted to include features that made sense in the context of the songs, rather than just placing them in out of convenience, or allegiance to his team. “I just felt like I didn’t wanna just put anybody on anything, so every song that I got a feature on, you can hear that person on that feature,” he said. “It increases the song.”
The “Rack City” rapper stressed the importance of not having to rely on other artists, indicating that me may not always have a strong team behind him. “I’ve always treated my career independently because I feel like that’s the best way,” he said. “You gotta learn step-by-step what you’re doing because one day you might just be doing it solo.”
