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.
