Tyga Admits His Image Took a Hit by Dating Kylie Jenner
Tyga is gearing up to drop his new Bitch I'm the Shit 2 project, and while he's keeping the focus on his music for now, the media still has questions about his love life. Earlier this year, the "Move to L.A." rapper and his girlfriend of two years, Kylie Jenner, broke off their highly-publicized relationship, and he finally addresses some details on The Breakfast Club.
Tyga sits down with the hosts of the Power 105 radio show, where he speaks on the two splitting up around the three-minute mark, and even admits that dating Kylie ended up hurting his image in some ways.
"She definitely helped me [with] women," Tyga starts by saying. "In middle America, there's way more women at my shows. [There's] younger girls and stuff."
Angela Yee asks the California entertainer if dating the Kardashian family member helped him financially, being that their family is an empire of money-making women.
"Nah, it didn't. Because you gotta think. I'm not coming from...I wasn't coming from reality. I was with a black girl before that. So, to the world it looked like...okay, I left her. Had a baby with her, I left her. Then I got with this young white girl. So like, that was already kind of a hit on my image, but for me, I was just like, I'm gonna just deal with it. We gon' rock and make the best out of it."
While many were wondering if Tyga sees the breakup with Kylie as a loss, he actually admits that he doesn't, as the two just simply didn't work out. He also speaks on the Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna situation, as well as false rumors that have circulated around him.
At around the 17:30 mark, Tyga also says Cash Money still owes him about $12-15 million, and he claims he never got paid for songs like "Rack City" and "Hookah." When he signed to Cash Money, he apparently had the same lawyer that represented the label, so you know how that goes.
