Tyga and Ty Dolla Sign Channel 1990s Hip-Hop in “Move to L.A.” Video
One day before the release of his latest mixtape Bitch I'm The Shit 2 (July 21), Tyga unveiled a visual to go with standout track "Move to L.A." featuring Ty Dolla $ign. The track, which samples Mase's 1997 classic "What You Want" with R&B group Total, also inspired the "Eye's Closed" rapper's video, as the two Compton natives channel Mase and his musical cohort, Diddy, to a tee.
Opening up with a skit from Tyga and model Yodit Yemane, "Move To L.A." focuses on the hip-hop artist persuading his love interest to travel to the West Coast in hopes of making an appearance on the runway. In an unusual twist from him, we see Tyga diddy bopping his way around the set with a string of background dancers with moves that would make Sean Combs undeniably proud, while also getting to view him and Ty perform as they float in an indoor skydiving setting. The single, along with the rest of Bitch I'm The Shit 2, has proven Tyga's presence in hip-hop as one with longevity, and his growth is clearly indisputable.
While promoting the mixtape last week, Tyga stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk life after Kylie Jenner, which he claims is great after his ex apparently hurt his image. “She definitely helped me [with] women,” he stated before adding, "I was with a black girl before that. So, to the world it looked like… okay, I left her. Had a baby with her, I left her. Then I got with this young white girl. So like, that was already kind of a hit on my image, but for me, I was just like, I’m gonna just deal with it. We gon’ rock and make the best out of it.”
Thing can only go up from here. Catch the video for "Move to L.A." below.
