Young Money rapper Tyga had a little more to talk about than just his new album.
In a recent interview with Vibe, the “Faded” rapper expressed his frustrations with not being able to release his forthcoming album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. Tyga then went on to talk about his disinterest in a few members within the Young Money Family, in particular, Drake and Nicki Minaj.
He revealed that he was forced to like them because they’re on the same label. Well, it’s clear to see that Tyga doesn’t conform to fake friendships even if it is for the look of the business.
“Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” Tyga says. “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.”
He’s attached to Young Money solely for Lil’Wayne!
“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,” he states. “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.”
With Tyga having yet to hit his sales goal, despite “Rack City’s” quadruple platinum certification, it’s understandable to see why he cares to leave Young Money. His third album, Hotel California, was a total flop and it’s time for a change, especially if he wants to gain the attention that he’s been craving from fans.
Do you feel that its best that Tyga becomes an independent artist?
