The Power 106 Family and Los Angeles native Tyga came together for quite a “legendary” moment as we hosted an intimate, VIP Liftoff Listening Album party with the L.A. Leakers.
Shutting down the exclusive Beverly Hills hidden Boosty Bellows night club, select winners filled the LA hot spot for a meet and greet with the “Haute” rapper and got a first listen to his ‘Legendary’ project, ahead of it’s official release. Tyga chopped it up with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk about how the project came together and the importance of showcasing an “LA vibe” this time around. Speaking on the feel of the new album, Tyga states, “For me, I just had to make sure it felt like home. Like if it’s your first time in LA you need it to feel like that! If you turn Power 106 on or you go to the club…it just needs to feel like that!”
As the project was spearheaded from the success of his 2018 “Taste” hit, Tyga revealed to the Leakers that there were a few songs that did not make it to the final product.
I did a lot of songs that didn’t make it that were actually good songs too, with other features and stuff. But, there was a certain sound that I wanted to lock in on this project. You know what I’m saying? So I was just like, it just has to be this kind of vibe, this kind of tempo. It just got to be a summer album!
Speaking on the evolving state of fans consuming music and adjusting to the landscape of the process of releasing new music, T-Raww says, “I think me coming from people buying albums and buying singles and ringtones opposed to now everybody just streaming. You might have artists that did really well with like, selling albums, selling singles and selling ringtones and then you have artists that are bigger with streaming, and a lot of those people that don’t evolve over. Now, there’s like people that come to my shows and that won’t even know “Rack City” like that.”
Tyga goes on to answer a few fan questions, mentioning the most fun he had recording was the Swae Lee featured track “Vibrate” and reveals what inspired his ‘Legendary’ album title.
