Although many people see Southern California as just a vacation spot, the city of Compton is better known—thanks to NWA—as the birthplace of gangsta rap. Taking advantage of the latter distinction, rapper Tyga invites everyone to get on the dance floor, but not before taking a sip of Coconut Juice. Travis McCoy (front man of the well-known hip-hop/indie rock group, Gym Class Heroes) hops along as a guest feature (a pretty big collabo for an unsigned artist), and seems ready to pull a couple ladies his way once they’ve gotten their fill of the juice. Add S*A*M & Sluggo‘s calypso-rock beat (and a sample from Harry Nilsson) and this party is no doubt ready to get started! Tyga’s debut album, No Introduction, emerges from the gate June 10.
