New Music: Tyga f/ 2Pac & Jadakiss – ‘Hit ‘Em Up’

Hit Em Up

Tyga resurrects Tupac on “Hit ‘Em Up,” a posthumous collaboration off his new album Hotel California. The DJ Mustard-produced track samples the hook from C-Murder’s “Down 4 My Ni**az” and includes a previously unreleased verse from the late West Coast legend.

“A lot of people think it’s a remake of ‘Hit ‘Em Up,’ his song—which it’s not a remake, it’s original,” Tyga told MTV News of the song, which borrows its title from Tupac’s 1996 Biggie diss. “When you’re talking about ‘Hit ‘Em Up’ you ain’t really dissing nobody, but you lettin’ it be known that you don’t rock with certain people.”

New York MC Jadakiss also makes an appearance, but Tyga originally had plans to feature another rapper. “I wanted Nicki to be on the song at first and then we never did it, so then I went back to the song later,” he said.

Due April 9, Hotel California also features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Future, 2 Chainz, and Wiz Khalifa.

Take a ride on the west side with T-Raww and Tupac.

    @REAL SH!T,

    Because as a rapper, he’s corny. Have you seen his album cover ? That says it all. But that’s not the most important. Most importantly, he’s fake. He claims he was raised in Compton, but he was raised in the valley. You don’t believe me ? Then check it, from his OWN MOUTH.

    Why is he making money ?

    1) Because he’s got people who actually think he lives up to everything he raps about,
    2) Because nowadays people won’t care about an rappers’s identity or authenticity as long as the music sounds nice.

    Mark my words, 2Pac would NEVER ride with such unauthentic rappers.

    @C94B, I know that album cover for Hotel California is stoopid but he changed that to a cover with only the tiger. I have to admit that it’s fucked up that he lies about his past. But you gotta admit it maybe be fake (but that’s almost every rapper now unless NAS and some other)but it’s still mostly good music.

    @C94B, I don’t know about you but I liked his last album I slept on it until yesterday and I’m a fan of his ‘The Potential’ mixtape. I think his album flopped first week because of some clearance issue and so they had to ship the CD’s back. I wished it would’ve sold more.

    Apparently i’m the only one who thinks this is really good, the best song of Hotel California so far.

    At this point, Tyga’s music is better than Lil Wayne’s. That’s the honest truth.
