No Introduction is the debut studio album by American rapper Tyga. It was released on June 10, 2008, by Decaydance Records, serving as Tyga's first independent release with Decaydance.[1] Recording sessions took place from 2005 to 2008, with Pete Wentz serving as the records executive producers, while the production was handled by Patrick Stump and S*A*M & Sluggo; as well as two guest appearances from Tyga's then-label-mates Travie McCoy and Alex DeLeon, among others.

The album was supported by three singles: "Diamond Life" featuring Patty Crash, "Coconut Juice" featuring Travie McCoy, and "AIM".

Music and lyrics[edit]

The album identifies Tyga's past effort of alternative rap rock due to the pop rock style of Decaydance Records label. This was the rapper's "clean" debut attempt, which features no explicit language or references, except of one vague noun use of the word "shit" in the song "Pillow Talkin'" and some explicit language in the deluxe edition tracks, before his full shift to explicit style of rapping in 2009, however, Tyga did use profanity during his early mixtape days, such as Young on Probation.


The album's debut single, called "Diamond Life" was released on December 17, 2007. The song features guest vocals from Patty Crash, while the production was handled by S*A*M & Sluggo.

The album's second single, called "Coconut Juice" was released on March 22, 2008. The song features guest vocals from Tyga's cousin and an American recording artist Travie McCoy, while the production was handled by S*A*M & Sluggo.

The album's third and final single, "AIM" was released on January 3, 2009. The song was produced by S*A*M & Sluggo, and Lu Balz.
