Tyga Plays with Fire on “We Don’t Die”

The latest tropical cut from Tyga may reveal the sounds of his impending Kanye West produced album.

May 19, 2014



Tyga snuck in a new single last night, "We Don't Die," a body-rolling thumper built on a tropical bass line loop. There are more than a few brow-raising elements here: the pharaoh figures depicted on the artwork, the God Body bars sprinkled in (Five-percenters running they own shit, but they ain't sprinters... no privacy, this time of week, tryna fulfill the prophesy), the hook's pretty spot-on Rihanna impersonation (or reference vocals?) and the Auto-Tuned vocal guitar harmonies that close it out all betray shades of a subtle Yeezian influence. Dupri produced the track, but could this loosie be the first hint at what Tyga's forthcoming, Kanye West executive-produced The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty will sound like? Whether it's runoff from Ye and Raww's recent studio sessions or a random one-off, we're paying close attention to what comes next.
