Having worked with Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes and Lil' Wayne, 18-year-old West Coast rapper Tyga will test the solo waters with his album debut, "No Introduction."

The Compton, Calif., native is signed to Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz's Decaydance Records via Bat Squad Records, the imprint headed by Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy. The project, due in stores June 10, will be distributed through Sony/RED.

A cousin of McCoy's, Tyga says he "built up enough courage" to give McCoy a CD of his work. From there, it made its way to Wentz, whom Tyga met two years ago at a T-Mobile party.

"I rapped for him and since then everything's been going good," Tyga tells Billboard.biz. So good, in fact, that Tyga ended up performing on Fall Out Boy's "Arms Race" remix at last year's MTV Video Music Awards with McCoy and Lil' Wayne.

Produced by SAM & Sluggo (Gym Class Heroes, Method Man), Tyga's lead single "Coconut Juice" was inspired by his dislike of alcohol. "When I was in a club once, someone asked me what I was drinking," he says. "Just to be funny, I said coconut juice. Me, being the crazy person that I am, decided to make a song about it."

The accompanying video features cameos by McCoy (who contributes a verse), Wentz and Lil' Wayne, whose own "Lollipop" video includes a guest appearance by Tyga.

Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump also joins McCoy and Lil' Wayne as a guest on "No Introduction," brought to life by Tyga's bright, animated flow. Stump, who has worked with the Roots and Lupe Fiasco, also doubles as a producer on the album along with Stress (Ghostface Killah, Cassidy).

Tyga's favorite track is the biographical "I Am," featuring Lil' Wayne. "That song really breaks down my whole life," says the former dropout who has since graduated from high school.

Born Michael Stevenson, Tyga calls himself a "mixed mutt" owing to his Jamaican and Vietnamese ancestry. His mother nicknamed him Tiger because she thought he looked like golfer Tiger Woods. Already focused on a music career by 7th grade, he changed the spelling to "add a little swagger."

Currently appearing on MTV's Spring Break 2008, Tyga will bring that swagger to the Gym Class Heroes' 20-date spring 2008 Campus Tour. Also performing: Kidz in the Hall and I Am the Avalanche. Kicking off April 1 in Lowell, Mass., at the University of Massachusetts, the tour wraps May 3 at Manhattan College in Riverdale, N.Y.
