Make It Work
by Tyga

Album: The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Tyga spitting harsh lines like "Nigga never was my homie, all these bitches know you're corny nigga." The media speculation is that the rapper is taking aim at his YMCMB labelmate Drake, especially as the track was released days after he voiced his disdain for Drizzy and Nicki Minaj in an interview with Vibe. ("I don't really get along with Nicki [Minaj]... I don't like Drake as a person. He's just fake to me.")
  • The song title may be a reference to Tyga wondering how he's going to remain on a label with whom he is in a standoff position. The song was released days after the rapper revealed his unhappiness with YMCMB at still awaiting a release date for The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
  • Tyga demonstrated his contempt for Drake by casting the Toronto MC's ex-girlfriend Dollicia Bryan for the song's video.
