Despite selling pre-orders for digital and vinyl copies of the LP, Tyga has since tweeted that the album will not make its January 27 release date. Once again, he's blamed Young Money/Cash Money for the delay:
The gold album won't be released the 27th still fightin with Label on my release. But will keep u guys updated.— T-Raww (@Tyga) January 21, 2015
Tyga has been blaming his label for the delays for some time. Back in October of 2014, he said the imprint is holding him hostage:
Tyga's not the only rapper facing indefinite delays from Birdman's imprint, as Lil Wayne has complained of similar delays for Tha Carter V.
Gold album been done. my label holding me hostage so i can't release nothing. might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.— T-Raww (@Tyga) October 10, 2014
If it ever does surface, The Gold Album will boast artwork designed by Kanye West's DONDA firm. Watch the music video for its lead single "Make It Work" below.
