Young Money rapper Tyga is reassuring fans concerned over his long-awaited Careless World album getting delayed by promising it will still hit stores this week despite reports suggesting otherwise.
Tyga hopped on his Twitter page to calm fans' nerves this weekend.
"d*mn..tryna pull my album out stores.they dont want me to win huh..lol"
"Tues Careless World Will be EVERYWHERE!!!! Itunes,Target, Walmart, Best Buy!!!!!!"
"Album comes out Tuesday..get it on iTunes!!!! Gonna follow everyone who tweets me a copy of album Tuesday!!!!," he tweeted February 19th. (Tyga's Twitter)
Weekend reports claimed sample clearances would delay the LP's release.
Well it looks like massive electronic retailers like Best Buy may not be putting the album out this coming Tuesday. Apparently the title track to the album, 'Careless World,' features samples from the late Martin Luther King that have not been authorized. It also seems that Martin Luther King's estate have asked that the albums be pulled from retail shelves and sent back to Tyga's label, Universal Music Group. (This Beat Goes)
The rapper's album has picked up momentum courtesy of its popular "Rack City" single.
"I think that the timing is right," Tyga tells The BoomBox. "Having the No. 1 rap song out right now, I know my fans have been waiting for it and I'm ready to put it out." To kick off its release, Tyga will head out on his Careless World Tour on the same day that the album drops. Although he's been keeping a lot of the details around the album secret -- he only fell victim to one leak by way of the song 'King of Queens' featuring Wale and Nas -- he's confident that fans will connect with the project. "I'm excited just to get it out and get it to fans," he continues. "I still give people a little party music, but I feel like when you make albums different from mixtapes, [the] album needs to be more of a theme." (The Boom Box)
Hollywood actress Vanessa Hudgens recently showed off her love for the record on "Late NIght with Jimmy Fallon."
The conversation turned to music, after Fallon asked her what she was listening to. Hudgens named a number of groups, like the Black Keys and Elbow. Jimmy spoofed that he was listening to Sade, and Vanessa countered with Rack City. Jimmy didn't know the song, so Vanessa sang a verse of the, shall we say, bouncy tune. "And 'Rack City?' Rack, rack, rack city chick. Rack, rack, rack city chick," Hudgens recited to Fallon when he said he was unaware of the tune. "Throwin' hundreds, hundreds! Hundreds, hundreds. [laughs] That's my slogan." (The Improper)
Careless World is slated to hit stores Tuesday, February 21st.
