Tyga Surprises Fans With Unannounced New Album Release

(Radio.com) After months of speculation surrounding the release date of his latest album, controversial rapper Tyga has suddenly and without warning released The Gold Album Tuesday (June 23).

The rapper announced the release with a tweet linking to the album's Spotify page. The Gold Album arrives after a seemingly endless stream of release date delays going as far back as last year.

The initial delays involved Tyga working to wrangle his way out of a contract with the embattled Cash Money record label, with hopes of issuing it on his own imprint, Last Kings Music.

"I just wanted to get this project to the fans with no barriers, no music business politics, no rules…they don't even have to pay for it if they don't want to," Tyga explained of the surprise release in a statement. "I wanted to do something different which is why I partnered with Spotify for the launch. People can listen to it as much as they want and if they want to buy it after - cool. If not, that's cool too. But I'm proud of this album as a whole and excited for people to hear it." Read more here.
