Tyga grew up in Compton, California, and inspired by the music made by Lil Wayne, Eminem and Fabolous, Tyga delivered a mixtape to his cousin Travis McCoy, who helped him kick-start his career. In 2008, after his single “Coconut Juice” peaked at #94 on the Billboard charts and opened a wave of opportunities for Tyga, he went on to sign a record deal with the Young Money Entertainment label, since when Tyga has been active in the music industry, releasing both solo as and well as collaborative works. Tyga released his first album called “No Introduction” under Decaydence Records. The album did fairly well on the market, especially since one of the songs called “Diamond Life” was featured on a track list of several popular video games, including “Madden NFL 2009”, as well as “Need For Speed: Undercover”. Tyga then went on to create a mixtape called “Fan of a Fan”, on which he worked with Chris Brown, which became a hit among the listeners, and one of the songs called “Deuces” even peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. His net worth was well set.

Following the success of his collaborations, Tyga released his second album “Careless World: Rise of the Last King” in 2012, which also produced six singles. At the peak of his career, Tyga released his third album “Hotel California” in 2013, which featured guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Game and other famous rap artists. The album was released to mixed reviews and even though it did not do as well as his debut album, “Hotel California” made a significant contribution towards Tyga’s fame and net worth. Tyga then worked on “The Gold Album” with Kanye West as an executive producer, released in 2014.

Tyga is a recipient of MuchMusic Video Awards, and a nominee for Grammy Awards, BET Awards, as well as MTV Video Music Awards.

In his personal life, Tyga was in a relationship with a model and stripper Blac Chyna with whom he has a son. He is apparently residing with partner Kylie Jenner in California, in a luxurious mansion that he is rumoured to have bought for $6.5 million. He has had some legal problems with allegedly issuing unauthorised videos, and non-payment of rent plus back-taxes.
