Tyga Pays Respect to the Hot Boys in “Cash Money” Video
If you watch Tyga's new music video on mute, you might think it's all love for his former label. However, the lyrics tell a different story. Today, the 26-year-old California rapper drops the visual for his recent track, "Cash Money."
In the clip, the Last Kings emcee takes us on a tour of Los Angeles in his purple lambo as he pays respect to the golden age of Cash Money by rocking camouflage and baggy gear. Even the song artwork looks like a late '90s Hot Boys album cover. Big booty mermaids, customized Air Force Ones and Death Row references round out the entertaining, three-minute clip. "Cash Money" is set to land on Tyga's upcoming project, Bitch I'm the Shit 2.
As for the song itself, Tyga uses the bouncy instrumental to get a few things off his chest. Using Mannie Fresh's patented flow, Tyga claims Cash Money never paid him and asks Birdman to free Tha Carter V.
On the hook, Tyga spits, "Cash Money never paid me/But your boy did his thing/Still make cash money/Yeah it’s mine I can throw it in the air if I wanna." Then, at the end of his second verse, he raps, "Big hits, mo' rich/New car, new b--ch/I’m a hot boy, free B.G/Free Tha Carter V, let the streets eat."
If you miss YMCMB before all the beefs, check out this photo gallery -- it should bring back some memories. Tyga was recently in the news after he began dating model Demi Rose. His fallout with former flame Kylie Jenner is well-documented. Stay tuned to XXL for more music from Tyga.
