Tyga has been making headlines online and it’s not for his music. He is currently battling the public’s perception on his relationship with Kylie Jenner and now there’s more controversy.
In an interview with Vibe Tyga dishes on the rumored relationship with Jenner, his feud wiht Nicki Minaj and Drake being fake.
Vibe: The Kardashians fit the profile. Speaking of, you’re not dating Kylie Jenner?
Tyga: Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie… I’ve known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced Chyna to Kim about a year ago. So everybody’s been cool, but like it’s just so hard, their world is different. If somebody wanna hang out, cool, I’m not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her [Kylie], her sister [Kendall], I hang out with Scott [Disick] sometimes, I hang out with Khloe sometimes. But people wanna take the situation [with Kylie] to the next level.
Vibe: The perception that’s out there on you doesn’t match the real life individual.
Tyga: Yeah, my biggest song is “Rack City.” It’s just like a party song about a stripper. But anybody that meets me knows I’m a genuine person when they talk to me. I just didn’t want to make music like this, I didn’t want to be labeled, and I didn’t want to be no backpack rapper. I wanted to make music I can party and have fun to and that’s what I like doing. But if you talk to me, it’s a whole other thing.
Vibe: Is Young Money a part of the creative process on this album?
Tyga: Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.
Vibe: Are you trying to break out on your own?
Tyga: Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.
Tyga: I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.
Vibe: You made a comment about you and Chris being real friends. How did you support him in the middle of all he’s gone through?
Tyga: When he was going through everything, I didn’t care. We just clicked. I don’t look at the media because I know it’s not real what they put on you. You gotta vibe with a person. I know when I used to vibe with him he wasn’t the person that people were making him out to be.
