After tossing back several glasses of his Coconut Juice, you should need No Introduction to California rapper Tyga. On his new single, Diamond Life, however, Ty wants to make clear that he’s not just a party animal; no, he’s a young boss who’s had to work for his paper. Over the percussion-heavy production of S*A*M & Sluggo, Tyga recounts all that he’s had to overcome in the course of his life, including the lack of a family dynamic and battles on the streets. Even though he has endured so much, the emcee comes across as a young man determined to make his own way. To hear more of Tyga’s confessional rhymes, check out his debut album, No Introduction, in stores now.
