Tyga Samples A Mase Classic On Latest Single "Move To L.A."

Tyga's new collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign is coming from his forthcoming 'B***h I’m The S**t 2' project. 

Tyga has a lot of love for the west coast, but isn't afraid to pay homage to the east's contribution to hip hop. The rapper recently dropped his new  single "Move to L.A.," and it includes a sample of  a Mase classic.

The new track featuring Ty Dolla $ign is intoxicatingly danceable and has a retro vibe, which would definitely suit car speakers or outdoor functions. The vintage feels probably comes from Tyga's sample of Mase's "Tell Me What You Want" beat, which features vocals by Total. Ty Dolla offers a soulful rendition of the classic, as he soothingly sings as guitar strings pluck on the instrumentals.

In addition to the beat, Tyga also seems to adopt Mase's disciplined flow while he raps about treating his girl to the finer things in life. "I don't wanna get rich, leave you in the hood Girl, in my eyes, you the baddest / The reason why I love you / You don't like me, kill my status / I see you livin' average, I'd be offended," he spits.

"Move to L.A." comes form Tyga's forthcoming project, B***h I'm the S**t 2, which is the second installation of the series. The single follows behind the track and video release for the project's first single, "Eyes Closed."

Tyga definitely seems to be focused on his music, but he may also be trying to cut all ties to the recent drama that erupted on social media between Rob Kardashian and his son's mother, Blac Chyna. When stopped by TMZ on July 6, the rapper said that he just wanted to mind his own business. "I’m just focused. Taking care of my business and taking care of my son," he said.

B***h I'm the S**t 2 reportedly drops on July 21. But in the meantime, check out the audio video for "Move to L.A." below.

Questlove To Executive Produce Broadway Musical About ‘Soul Train’

Soul Train, the audacious dance series that proudly spotlighted black culture while showcasing performances from legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and more, is the focus of a new Broadway musical with Queslove as executive producer, Deadline reports.

The Roots drummer, who authored the 2013 book Soul Train: The Music, Dance and Style of a Generation, will executive produce the musical alongside, Tony Corneilus, son of Soul Train host and creator, Don Corneilus. Having worked directly with his father for “several years,” Cornelius’ son expressed gratitude for the impact that the series “has had on the culture at large,” both stateside and abroad.

Playwright Dominique Moriseeau, director Kamilah Forbes, and choreographer Camille A. Brown, are also included in the musical's production team. In a statement to Deadline, Morisseau said that she can’t wait to collaborate with a “legendary creative team of incredible women to celebrate the history and the unsung hero of our nation’s longest running televised music and dance series.”

More than 20 hits from the era are set to be featured in the musical, which will also detail Cornelius’ story in the early days of creating the series. Soul Train debuted in October 1971, and took its final bow in March of 2006. Cornelius died by suicide in 2012.

The musical is slated to debut in 2021, corresponding with the 50th anniversary of Soul Train’s television debut.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Is No Longer The Number One Song In America

Lil Nas X's bonafide smash "Old Town Road" has been dethroned from its unprecedented 19-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to the publication, rising alt-pop star Billie Eilish now has the No. 1 song in the country with her track "Bad Guy." The song has been sitting at No. 2 for nine weeks straight. Lil Nas X, who collaborated with the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, Mason Ramsey and more superstars for various remixes of the song, congratulated the 17-year-old on her first No. 1 hit via Twitter.

"Old Town Road" now holds the No. 3 spot behind  Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's "Señorita."

The Atlanta musician catapulted to fame after "Old Town Road" made the rounds. Initially, it was removed from Billboard's Country chart for reportedly not implementing enough elements of the genre. Since then, it has shattered records and expectations.

Just a few weeks ago, it became the longest-running No. 1 in American music history, breaking a record held by Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber (for "One Sweet Day" and "Despacito," respectively).

Lil Nas X has a lot to be proud of. Congrats on a historic run.

congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!
