Tyga’s album has been officially delayed from its January 30 release date. The Young Money rapper has announced a potential new date and revealed the star-studded lineup.
During a Ustream session, Tyga updated his fans on the pushback of Careless World: Rise of the Last King. “I’m excited to drop this album that I was supposed to drop like three months ago,” he said. “I just want ya’ll to know that it’s not my fault because it’s just a bunch of bullshit that you gotta deal with when you’re putting out an album.”
He is now looking toward a February release date. “It’s kind of frustrating ’cause I’ve been working on this album for a minute and the album’s been done for like a month, and I just want to put the shit out. So hopefully we put it out, most likely February 7.”
While the single “Rack City” is doing well on the charts, don’t expect more of the same on the album. “It’s a little something different than ‘Rack City’ and stuff like that. It’s timeless music and ya’ll really gon’ love it.”
A pre-order link is expected to go live this week with the tracklisting, which has been whittled down to 18 songs including collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Drake (“Still Got It”), Lil Wayne (“Faded”) a “banger” with Chris Brown, Big Sean, J. Cole, a “classic” with Nas, Wale, Robin Thicke, and some surprises.
UPDATE: Universal Republic has set a February 21 release date for Careless World: Rise of the Last King, Rap-Up.com can confirm.
