News: Tyga Tells VIBE Magazine He Doesn’t Get Along w/ Nicki Minaj or Drake


Tyga covers Vibe Magazine and has a lot to say about his label mates. Since venting his fustration with YMCMB here which resulted in a response from Mack Maine and Nicki unfollowing him, Tyga is now speaking in depth in the cover story. Preparing for the release of The Gold album here is what Tyga had to say:

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.

VIBE: Why?
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.
