First on the list of releases will be Tyga with his continuously pushed back Careless World: Rise of the Last King which is due to hit store shelves on February 21st, 2012.

This is one of the most anticipated YMCMB albums we see set for 2012 with some already continuously played tracks “Roman In Moscow” and “Stupid Hoe“.
