New Music: Tyga – Hit Em Up (Feat. Tupac & Jadakiss)

With a chorus that pays homage to the C-Murder classic “Down 4 my Niggaz,” this new release from Tyga is a clever mix between the old and the new. In “Hit Em Up,” we find staple Tyga, spitting bars that ride the beat so well that they almost sound as part of the beat. The West Coast born rapper precisely combines his second verse with voice samples from West Coast legend Tupac to create an interesting tag-teaming effect.
