FAMOUS DEX – WHAT I LIKE

Today, Chicago’s turn-up king Famous Dex releases a new single and music video for his song “What I Like” off of his forthcoming sophomore album. For the single, Dex also taps fellow multi-platinum recording artists Tyga and Rich The Kid — adding layers to the already vibrant track. Rich The Kid provides the infectious hook and Tyga laces the beat with his trademarked flow, making you subconsciously bounce in your seat. On the opposite side of the sonic spectrum from his first single off of the album, “Proofread” ft. Wiz Khalifa which took a more melodic approach, Dex returns back to his signature sound with “What I Like.”

TYGA’s MAMACITA OF THE DEAD

TYGA LAUNCHES FIRST-EVER HALLOWEEN EVENT “MAMACITA OF THE DEAD” AT YAMASHIRO OCTOBER 29-30

‘Mamacita packs quite a slug at the iconic Yamashiro in Hollywood. With an immersive haunted maze, surprise celebrity sightings, handcrafted cocktails as well as live musical interludes throughout the evening which will leave you spooked for days.’ – 360 MAGAZINE

Celebrating his favorite season in style, Tyga’s “Mamacita of the Dead” takes over the Hollywood Hills on October 29 and 30 at the iconic Yamashiro restaurant overlooking Hollywood Blvd. This marks the first-ever Halloween event hosted and produced by the GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum modern hip-hop icon and also celebrates the imminent arrival of music with his new Columbia Records partnership. VIP admission tickets are available now with general admission on sale later this week via www.Mamacitaofthedead.com.

As legend has it, “Mamacita” ran Hollywood’s most notorious brothel as Queen Madame. For the first time in a century, Tyga invites those brave enough to explore the hidden catacombs of her haunted bordello in order to validate once and for all if the Madame was a Santeria witch who beheaded women whose beauty dwarfed hers, or if she was a vampire who transformed the Bordello into a feeding ground for beautiful blood-sucking sirens, or if she gave birth to the ghost rider’s baby whose cries still ring out in the hills…The only way to know is to visit “Mamacita of the Dead.”

About the launch, Tyga commented, “This is something I always wanted to do. I love Halloween and wanted the opportunity to present my vision for it. Dare to Enter. You may never want to leave Mamacita’s embrace.”

“Mamacita of the Dead” invites attendees to explore a Haunted Hell House in the basement of Yamashiro, while upstairs offers a post-maze experience (if they make it out alive).
