Tyga may be a fan of Lil Wayne, but that sentiment doesn’t apply to Weezy’s Young Money imprint or any of its top acts like Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this month, the “Rack City” rapper accused his record label of holding him hostage, which trickled a response from Young Money President Mack Maine and a Twitter unfollow from Nicki Minaj.
Now, in a new interview with VIBE, Tyga explains his views on Young Money and its top acts, insisting the situation only worked because of Lil Wayne.
“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,” Tyga states, who also says, “I don’t really get along with Nicki.”
He continued to explain his position: “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.
Tyga says he has a real friend in Chris Brown though. “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,” he adds.
Tyga also touched on the rumors of him dating 17-year-old Kylie Jenner and his relationship with his son’s mother Blac Chyna.
“I’ve known Kylie and the whole family for four years,” he says. “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.”
As far as Blac Chyna he adds, “We decided to take a break apart ‘cause you don’t wanna raise an emotionally unstable child, and that’s what it comes down to. It wasn’t my happiness, and it wasn’t her happiness. It was for the sake of King.”
Tyga really sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders.
