There’s a lot to try to get your head around with the first single from Decaydance signing Tyga.
1. Tyga is Travis McCoy’s cousin. Somehow, that has become notable somehow, as if that factoid implies some sort of talent or skill passed via genetic transfer.
2. The hook is taken from either the 1971 Harry Nilsson novelty song “Coconut”, or quite possibly, the Muppet Show cover. However, this does open the window for my rap album sampling TV commercial jingles I heard growing up in Tucson. The track “Lucky Wishbone, We Got Everything” is sure hit, by my ears.
3. Tyga’s album is a co-production of Pete Wentz’s more-successful-than-I’d-like-to-imagine vanity label Decaydance and Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment. This business relationship is symbolized in the above video by a phone call between Wentz and Weezy, which is seen as comfortable and not at all awkward.
4. Pete Wentz mentions living in Encino. Were all the Mullholland mansions taken, Pete, or are you settling into family mode already?
