Tyga takes on fans with Xbox Game With Fame
From out of Compton with nothing but a mixtape, lots of ambition, and a serious amount of talent, comes Michael Stevenson, aka Tyga, who’s going to lay down his Madden moves with Xbox LIVE® members in Madden(TM) NFL 08 on Thursday, May 15, 2008.
Xbox LIVE Gold members can get their chance to play with the man who VIBE Magazine described as one of the best undiscovered rappers in the country. Members can send a friend request to the Gamertag (GWF Tyga) and be online half an hour before (6:00 P.M. ET) the Game with Fame session starts at 6:30 P.M. ET on Thursday, May 15:
Tyga’s debut album, No Introduction, comes out on Decaydance Records this spring. With appearances from Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, and Lil Wayne, Tyga’s initial full release is slated for major success, especially with its lead single, "Coconut Juice." Tyga notes how that song came about, "I don’t drink alcohol, so at parties I would just walk around with a cup mixed with whatever else I could find. When people asked what I was sipping on I would say ‘coconut juice’ because it sounded funny. So I made a song about it."
