No Introduction is the debut studio album by American rapper Tyga. It was released on June 10, 2008, by Decaydance Records.[4] Recording sessions took place during 2005 to 2008, with the production on the album was handled by Patrick Stump and S*A*M & Sluggo, as well as it features guest appearances from then-label-mates such as 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.

Singles[edit]

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

The album's second single, "Coconut Juice" was released on March 22, 2008. The song features guest vocals from his cousin and American recording artist Travie McCoy, with the production that 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.
