Album Cover: Tyga – ‘The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty’

The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty

All gold everything. A day after dropping his Fan of a Fan single with Chris Brown, Tyga has unveiled the artwork for his fourth LP The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.

The cover, which is made of real gold, shows an Egyptian falcon with his wings spread. The design is the work of Kanye West and his creative team DONDA, who are also responsible for Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint cover.

Kanye serves as executive producer of The Gold Album. “He hears certain melodies that I wouldn’t hear or even think about adding,” Tyga told Nylon Guys. “He taught me that 808 drums and bass aren’t enough. You have to have that warmth.”

The follow-up to 2013′s Hotel California is due early next year via Tyga’s independent label Last Kings. It has spawned the singles “Make It Work” and the Kanye-produced “40 Mill.”

New Music: Chris Brown & Tyga – ‘Ayo’


Christmas comes early for Chris Brown and Tyga fans. Over four years since releasing their Fan of a Fan mixtape, the “Deuces” duo returns with “Ayo,” the first single off their upcoming joint album of the same name, due next year.

The fellas holla at the shorties with the “real hair” on the bouncy banger (think “Loyal”). Tyga kicks things off, declaring himself the “black Richie Rich,” while Breezy thirsts for Ice T’s wife Coco (“This don’t concern Ice”) and recalls his stint in rehab (“Rehabilitation just had me worried ’bout fu**in’”).

In addition to Fan of a Fan, Tyga plans to release The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty independently early next year.

He will join Chris and Trey Songz on their “Between the Sheets Tour,” which kicks off in January.

Kingin. Tyga lives large in the self-directed video for “Make It Work.” The Last Kings chief takes it from the streets of L.A. to the sky, while chilling on his private jet with a leopard and piles of cash. He hits the club and makes off with a briefcase full of money after a game of poker with some mafia types.

The video co-stars Drake’s ex Dollicia Bryan, while the song includes the controversial lyric: “Ni**a never was my homie, all these bitches know you corny.”

Tyga has thrown his support behind his Young Money boss Lil Wayne after his fallout with Cash Money. He retweeted Weezy and wrote, “@LilTunechi is LEGEND.”

Starting next month, he will join Chris Brown and Trey Songz on their “Between the Sheets Tour.”
