Tyga – Kings & Queens (feat. Nas & Wale)

I re-watched Bedrock by Young Money the other day, and it actually surprised me how stacked the line-up was, albeit Lloyd was on the roster, which actually stiff baffles the shit out of me.  I always remember Drizzy and Minaj as the standout breakout artists of the YMCMB movement at the time, and especially on that track, but my favourite verse was always Tyga’s; even though I had no idea who Tyga was.

Fast-forward to 2012, he’s not only one of the most hotly tipped artists on the Young Money stable, but he’s also making strides across the hip-hop community. Listen to Rack City and tell me you don’t like it, honestly, it’s not possible. T Raw’s released copious mixtapes since Bedrock and now he’s teaming up with big guns like Nas & Wale on his debut album, ‘Careless World: Rise of the Last King.’ It’s safe to say that Travie’s cousin has earned his bones in the business. He’s also the same age as me, which is a joke, but anyway back to the album track release, ‘Kings  & Queens’ with said big guns. Tyga shows that he can live in that company; Wale is as consistent as he has been the last year or so, but Nas, MY GOD Nas is back. A friend of mine asked me the other day, ‘’what has Nas done in the last 20 years? He’s gone from Illmatic, to Stillmatic, to Nomatic.’’ I’m a Nas Stan so obviously I don’t think he’s been picking his nose since Untitled, but it’s nice to see the King of Queensbridge throw a verse down on a track from a new artist and remind the younger generation how it’s done.

CWROTLK is set for release on Tuesday and will feature ‘Rack City’ and ‘Kings & Queens,’ it will also boast feats from the likes of Busta, Pharell, Big Sean, Minaj, J.Cole and T.Pain, expect it to be big. YMCMB.

One thought on “Tyga – Kings & Queens (feat. Nas & Wale)

  1. You friend needs to listen to all 9 of Nas’ solo multiplatinum, platinum & gold albums. By the way Nas has been selling out tours across the globe for the past 2 years straight with his collaboration tour with Damian Marley (Distant Relatives). Nas has won an Emmy Award in 2011 for his ESPN Documentary ‘Survivsl 1,’ doing endorsements for Nike, Levi & TDK ect. Co-producing the ‘Mike Tyson’ documentary. He has also been lending his lyrical skills on features for artists such as Carlos Santana, Mary J Blige, Beastie Boys, Lil Wayne, Melonie Fiona, Chris Brown, Rick Ross & rocking at Carnegie Hall with Jay-z as his invited guest along with Alicia Keys. He will also begin production on his new movie role ‘Way Down South’ in New Orleans. Nas has been very busy man for the padt 20 years. Let me add also being the co-owner of Guerilla Union the touring company that produces such concerts like Rock The Bells along with Live Nation.
    Nas is also busy buying commercial property to occupy the businesses that rent his property.
