    Tyga's major label debut contains expansive production and passionate performances. His lyricsm has developed into that of a proven and veteran MC. Careless World is a great album.

    Great album still not better than No introduction. His lyrics hasn't changed that much. His mixtapes are really good and he should of used his mixtape material on Careless world. Overall careless world is a great album. but for future albums he should focus more on the lyrics and less on the beats and Features

    No Introduction (Tyga's debut album) was just an average piece of work, but he received attention from one of the top labels in the rap game. YMCMB (Young Money-Cash Money Billionaires) found something in Tyga's abilities which made them sign him to their label. Lil Wayne (Weezy) and Birdman (Baby) are two ill rappers who run YMCMB. Not including their own talent YMCMB is also the home toNo Introduction (Tyga's debut album) was just an average piece of work, but he received attention from one of the top labels in the rap game.

Not including their own talent YMCMB is also the home to Drake, Nikki Minaj, Tyga, Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, Bow Wow, and many others. YMCMB has an eye for talent, but many people questioned their decision to sign Tyga. Tyga had a reputation for being "hit-or-miss" with his early mix tapes.

    #B****ImTheS*** (a mix tape released to calm fans during their wait for his new album) is where many believe Tyga broke into his own. This mix tape came out near the end of 2011. Like his mentor Weezy did with "Sorry 4 the Wait" the push back mix tape was a huge success in the mix tape universe. According to DatPiff.com Tyga's mix tape B***ImTheS*** has been downloaded 473,930 times. These numbers do not even show other websites or bootleggers selling them on the streets. Some say there are already over 1 million of the units in CD players or on iPod/iPhones.

    Careless World: Rise of the Last King was worth every bit of the wait. Tyga performs hit after hit on beats which should be listened to on Beat's by Dre headphones. Lyrically Tyga went off with everything from spitting about his life to current events. There is hope that with this album Tyga will break into the mainstream not only because he is with YMCMB, but because he finally has an album that can compete with the best in the game!

    Tyga major debut album which I consider this one not "No Introduction" was a well put together album. When listen 2 this CD you really hear how diverse he is. Club Bangers to Love Songs to Real Life Situation and u even come across dub-step. If you like Rap but also like R&B then you should love this album. I can honestly say this is my fav album so far this tear! Hopefully whoever readsTyga major debut album which I consider this one not "No Introduction" was a well put together album.

    Undeniably one of the most talented acts signed to YMCMB. Production by Jess Jackson definitely stands out more than the other producers on the album. Songs such as Rack City can get on your nerves after a while but the set is still a solid effort by the young rapper. 8 out of 10

    Careless World: Rise of the Last King is a strong debut for Tyga - and probably the only album of his that's actually worth listening to, to be honest. What makes this album good is Tyga's aspire to become a great rapper - although he fails in this area, the idea is executed bravely over the course of the album.

Tyga doesn't really have much lyrically, especially on "Rack City", although some of the songs on here show Tyga throwing out some good raps, and Wale and Nas have some great guest verses. The production here is also good, especially on "Potty Mouth", which also contains a verse by Busta Rhymes that shows he's still a skilled rapper. Highlights: "Black Crowns", "King & Queens", "Potty Mouth". Worst song: "Rack City" (I really don't even understand why this song exists. One of the worst beats DJ Mustard has ever made, and these lyrics may just be some of the worst I've ever heard in ANY song.) Expand

    Attempts to keep one foot in the streets and another in the mainstream, and largely succeeds. [May 2012, p.102]

    As a whole, though, Careless World is simply mediocre.

    The result is a slick, accessible rap record that's about nine songs too long.
