Kanye West and Tyga have been spending time in the studio recently, without elaborating on what they’re working on, but now the cat’s out of the bag. Kanye will be executive producing the YMCMB rapper’s upcoming LP The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
Do we have Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna to thank for this? Kanye and Tyga’s leading ladies have become tight over the past few months, heading out on double dates together and attending events for their respective kids. Apparently all of that time spent together is also going to be a big win for Tyga.
“Kanye executive producing that, so it’s gonna be a crazy album,” Tyga revealed during a visit to Power 106 in LA. “It’s just good to have people like him [and] Wayne. They’re all these people I grew up on. To really be mentored by the greats, it just puts you in that running.”
Before Tyga’s album arrives, however, he’ll appear up on the upcoming compilation album Young Money: Rise of An Empire, which is currently set to debut on March 11. He raps alongside Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj on the recent single “Senile,” and will also be featured on “One Time” and “Good Day.”
This week Chris Brown also announced that he and Tyga will drop Fan of a Fan 2, a follow-up to their 2010 mixtape, this summer. There’s no release date for Tyga’s studio album as yet.
