As far as big days in a man’s career go, today is a contender for being the biggest yet for Tyga. Mere hours ago, Kanye West announced that the rapper (along with those Versace-loving-hoodlums Migos) is the newest signee to his label G.O.O.D. Music. This was revealed in typically-Kanye grandiose style during a big label-blowout last night in New York, where Tyga took to the stage with his new labelmates like Pusha T, Teyana Taylor and Swizz Beatz. It was there that he and Desiigner–himself a recent signee–debuted a collaborative new track titled “Gucci Snakes.” Luckily, for those of us unable to see it in person, the track has emerged online in all its bombastic glory.
“Gucci Snakes” is a bold new direction for Tyga, who seems to have truly come into his own on the track (no doubt thanks to a boost from his potential future brother-in-law/label boss). His verses here are sharp, with memorable lines like “sea full of piranhas, if you loyal watch my lawyers” spitting out of him with effortless ease. And Desiigner compliments him nicely, hovering in on his cloud of Auto-tune with characteristically hard to define warbles, though he definitely says “Dirty Diana” at some point. If it’s even a slight hint at what’s to come, than let’s get the proverbial hype-ball rolling.
