Tyga – Bitch I’m The Shit 2 (Album Review)

800px-BitchImTheShit2

Tyga’s relationship with Kylie is over now, meaning he should now know that his fame and glory will rely mainly on his rap contributions moving forward. With ‘Bitch I’m The S–t 2’, you can tell Tyga knew this, because some of the toughest s–t I’ve heard from him to date were leaks from this album.


TOP 5


5. FLOSSIN’

This might be the most unpopular choice in my top 5, especially considering the fact that I left out other songs with bigger name features (literally)  –  but something about this song is extra unique to me, despite the fact that Tyga is talking about the same flossin’ s–t on it.

On the chorus, Tyga and his son go back and forth, letting listeners know that flossin’ in the rappers family will continue well into the next generation. As for the whole song, Tyga sounds like a natural over the Zaytoven produced beat, creating this very catchy sound for us to all indulge in.

Doesn’t it sound like Tyga is on the verge of crying the whole song?

4. PLAYBOY

For hip hop fans everywhere, this is an unexpected collaboration that you will really enjoy!

Believe it or not, Tyga is bringing out some of the toughest records in the game right now, and this song confirms that to me. On ‘Playboy’, Tyga raps over this dark beat that sorta reminds me of some s–t the Wu-Tang Clan made in the past. Tyga’s confidence is sky high on his verses, as he continues to embark on this journey full of recklessness.

Vince Staples goes ham on the track, handing out bars like it is free lunch. In my humbling opinion, Vince fits the track more than Tyga does, as he resembles this whole killer bees vibe on his verse.

3. EYES CLOSED

The flow is quite impeccable from Tyga on this song, as he’s rapping quickly but clear enough to where you can hear his money obsessions. Overall, I feel like this is that one song that differentiates Tyga from the other rappers in the game (Something that is important to me).

This beat is sick as s–t to me! It’s like a combination of trap music and some Dragon Ball Z s–t.

2. MOVE TO LA

Mase is sampled just as much as the greats (And don’t you forget that!).

‘Move To LA’ definitely has a smooth tone to it, as it takes the general musicality of ‘Tell Me What You Want’ by Mase. About 70 Percent of Tyga’s lyrics on this song is inspired by Mase, something that I am a bit conflicted about (you can’t just steal the mans s–t, especially considering that he’s the Penny Hardaway of rappers!). Tyga is very playa-like with the words on his verses, as he aims to get this bad joint back to the west side!

Ty Dolla Sign still hasn’t blown his nose since 2013, but that is fine, because strangely this is a song that sounds good with a singer with that type of sound. Ty has been a chorus killer to me as of late, so I am not surprised by his solid contribution on this track.

This is the commercial single that could possibly get some radio play in the near future.

1 ON 1 

This song made the album? It came out like a year ago though!

When I first heard the song, I initially thought that it was a cheap knockoff of Drakes ‘Controlla’, but as I continued to hear the song in clubs I actually started to F with it hard!  The song just makes you feel good, as Tyga talks about going toe to toe with this dime-piece (presumably from Jamaica). I absolutely love this songs vibes, as it reminds you of summertime at the beach.

OVERALL RATING (7.7/10)

Tyga dropped a very solid album with ‘Bitch I’m The S–t 2′ for sure, but with all the major releases hitting the fan this week, this album may have went a bit under the radar. With that being said, I think his album stacks up nicely when you compare it to the others.

One thing Tyga did well on this album was stay true to himself, as he continued to rap over the same type of songs he would in the past. He doesn’t deviate much from what he knows, which subsequently creates this consistent sound that flows pretty well from song to song.

I’ve always thought that Tyga was an underrated rapper, and he definitely shows a myriad of his skills on this album. While his topics are pretty generic (Flossin’ and living the luxurious life), he finds ways to sorta tweak the theme of each song enough to make the songs sound different from each other.

The Features on this album are pretty impressive, as he was able to recruit some big name artists to help him tell his story. Each artists gets a chance to do their thing on the album, as Tyga did a good job of matching the artist with the style of song they’re on.

Is it the greatest album in the world? No, but it is one of those albums that you will enjoy when Spotify plays a random song from it. I feel like Tyga’s appeal carries him throughout this album, as he aims to satisfy your hunger for club records from track to track.
