Today is a big day for Young Money rapper Tyga. His new album Careless World: Rise of the Last King is in stores today but it was not without drama. After a legitimate delay of the album, only days before release the album hit a huge snag that looked like it was going to sideline the new project for weeks.
[photogallerylink id=95579 align=right]Over the weekend, there was a mass recall of Tyga’s new album from just about every retailer including Best Buy, WalMart, Target and Amazon due to uncleared samples on the album by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Martin Luther King Jr.[/lastfm] The late pastor and civil rights leader’s estate claims that the sample was not given the go ahead and thus would have to be shelved until Young Money/Cash Money could release a version of the CD without the sample, which was speculated to be in about two weeks.
Firing back at the news that his album would be recalled, he took to Twitter to air his grievances. “damn..tryna pull my album out stores.they dont want me to win huh..lol,” he wrote on the networking site. He then returned triumphantly to declare that there would be no delay.“Tues Careless World Will be EVERYWHERE!!!! Itunes,Target, Walmart, Best Buy!!!!!!”
His supporting tour also begins today in Atlanta. Tyga is on the grind for real. The next Young Money star is apparently on the rise…
