44. Tyga, Careless World: Rise of the Last King
Label: Young Money Cash Money/Universal
Released: February 21st
Since 2007 Tyga has been dropping mixtape after mixtape, all leading up to this debut album, Careless World. The loyal fanbase that the YMCMB representer has amassed over his years of grinding was more than pleased with his freshman effort, but this album might be more surprising to the casual fan who only knows Tyga for hits like "Rack City" or "Coconut Juice." What that unsuspecting listener might find is a cohesive album that touches on more than jewelry, cars, and the occasional frisky grandma. While there are plenty of tracks like "Faded" that would be more at home in a strip club, there are also places where Tyga shows that he's really got something to say. Songs like "Do It All" or "Love Game" let Tyga's talent shine through and allow him to express his honest thoughts about love, girls, and his upbringing. While it may not be the album of the year, it certainly deserves a spot on this list. And let's be honest, who didn't love "Rack City?"
