“So I’m Sure everyone is prob pretty tired of me posting Tyga Pieces hahah so this time I tried to switch it up with a solo so you could really focus on the word play I used as well as performance quality as this is a more performance based and detailed choreo piece than the others-I would have used a group but then it would have been the same five guys…and there would basically be 3 different versions of "faded” on my channel hahah. I know that this is my third piece to his music but everyone has phases in music that just clicks right with them…and since “faded” certain songs by tyga have REALLY clicked with the way I’m trying to develop my more “HipHop” influenced pieces. ALTHOUGH I DO NOT CONDONE ANY OF THE LYRICS TO THIS SONG- Tyga’s flow in correlation with his hype production behind his beats has worked really well on my body and has pulled each of these three pieces out of me really fast. Even though pretty much all three songs. “faded” “make it nasty” and “do my dance” are in a similar sound—i really appreciate that as an artist—because as much as I respect and artist for variety-I ALSO respect an artist just as much for their BRANDING and THEIR SOUND and Tyga is a master at sticking with what he knows works—after a hit like “Faded” and “Rack City” would you want an R&B song to be his next hit? no-you’re gunna want Tyga to release something that has a Tyga sound to it…FEEL ME?!
—all that being said though…next piece i’m gunna post is either gunna be emo/sexy r&B or just FUN ahahah…i’ve given youtube enough of my hype pieces to last awhile!
anyway thank you guys so much for the support in advance i hope you enjoy this piece as much as i do dancing it! I know the song is gross but it gets me hype and i hope it gets you hype too!
As regards to the content—I’ve been getting a lot of flack about my song choices lately—and because of that i decided to use it as part of my concept this time hahah so thank you!–and as i am sure many people will still complain…and…for those people…its time to wake up—its 2012—“B***” and “A**” were already allowed on “that 70’s show” 10 years ago on NETWORK television while i was growing up-and if you have still a problem with the content you should also have a problem with most movies/songs/artists/and tv shows in pop culture today as well-lol. :)
last but not least!
I originally was going to post this:
1. because I’ve taken to posting most videos I see that are dance, whether I like them or not, because I feel it’s just as important to know and communicate what resonates with me as well as what doesn’t,
2. because of the content warning at the beginning.
But then I saw the description and felt it would be worthwhile to post my thoughts as they flow from reading the description. Seeing the warning was interesting to me because it brings up the ideas of censoring to me. Should all of my music be “clean edits” of songs? I’ve strayed away from using hip-hop when I put pieces on stage for the student dance concerts because in some ways I separate my dance lives: I feel I do “fun” dances with my student dance company, and “serious” dances in the department. But each of the dances I’ve put on stage has been fun to do, and serious in preparation/composition.
I’m not a fan of Tyga much at all. But I do think the decision to do word play in this video is very interesting, understanding that it is a solo piece. I like the character it gives to the song, though not necessarily the song itself.
“ ALTHOUGH I DO NOT CONDONE ANY OF THE LYRICS TO THIS SONG- Tyga’s flow in correlation with his hype production behind his beats has worked really well on my body and has pulled each of these three pieces out of me really fast. ”
I think that is a really interesting experience. Having a song resonate with your body because of it’s production but not identifying with the lyrics, but still deciding to do a solo piece based off of the idea of word play with those lyrics, in ways that seem to highlight the lyrics rather than call attention to your opposition to their message.
Part of me really likes this because it seems to be a response to harsh criticisms, in a way that says I don’t care what you think, I’m producing art with my body for me.
I don’t really agree with not caring about the usage of certain language because of its prevalence in pop culture. In this case, if Tyga got me hype because of the instrumental and not the lyrics, I would use the clean version. I feel sometimes curse words serve a purpose because they can be jarring, but if it doesn’t serve me a purpose, then it’s not really necessary for me to use it.
