(AllHipHop News) Even though Tyga’s next album is tentatively titled The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, the California rapper says fans should expect the project to be dark. That artistic direction is thanks to the LP’s executive producer Kanye West.

T-Raww sat down with Diana Madison to discuss his upcoming collection. Tyga explained how Ye shaped the sound of his fourth solo album.
“[Kanye] executive produced the album. Just having his vision took it to a dark place. He heard things in the music that I didn’t hear or wasn’t looking for,” said Tyga. “It’s going to show people the potential and get to the roots when I started doing music, the feeling I wanted to create when I first started.”
This will not be the first time a Kanye West produced album will turn toward the dark side. He released the critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010. The GOOD Music leader also executive produced Big Sean’s 2015 chart topper Dark Sky Paradise.
