After scoring his first top-10 single on Billboard Hot 100, the 'Rack the City' hitmaker will release his sophomore set on February 28 and follow it up with a tour.

The single was originally recorded for his latest mixtape "Well Done Vol. 2". Due to its instant success, it's included in his long-delayed second studio album "Careless World: Rise of the Last King". It additionally got a remix which features several notable rappers.

Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, T.I. and Meek Mill got together in the revamped version. "I heard the record, loved it, seen it go crazy in the club. I couldn't visualize it without a Young verse on there, so I just went ahead," Jeezy said.

Still riding high on the success of the single, Tyga is gearing up to release his new album and hit the road for a promo effort. After delaying it for several times, he's now set to release the album in the United States on February 21. For the roadshow, he's scheduled to kick it off on February 21.
