Tyga and Chris Brown Bring ‘Snapbacks Back’ — Listen
Young Money rapper Tyga is the latest to hop on Meek Mill‘s ‘Tupac Back’ instrumental, enlisting longtime collaborator Chris Brown to spit some bars about the return of their favorite fashion accessory on ‘Snapbacks Back.’
While they last paired up on Brown’s hit ‘Deuces,’ this time the duo test their wit on the subject of snapback baseball hats, a slightly less weighty topic than Mill’s original ode to slain rap legend Tupac, or Joell Ortiz‘ controversial tribute to Big Pun.
Tyga’s verse on ‘Snapbacks Back’ is adequate, if uninspired, referring to himself the “Master Splinter of rap,” threatening to “Spin you like Urkel,” and dropping a pair of clunkers with “Thought you was sharper than tacks/ Get you thrown like some jacks.” Meanwhile, his cohort’s name alone should bring big league support, yet while Breezy’s bars aren’t bad, and his animated delivery could probably be worse, it’s doubtful that he’ll be making any new fans with his “heart throb” raps.
With his ‘Well Done 2′ mixtape around the corner, and his sophomore album ‘Careless World’ due later this year, it’s likely we’ll be hearing a lot more from Tyga before the year ends. Hopefully next time he’ll bring more snaps.
