Tyga first came onto the music scene in 2008 with his single 'Cocunut Juice'. Tyga also happens to be the cousin of Travie McCoy, the lead singer of Gym Class Heros. From the little success that the rapper gained from his single many thought he would not be on the music much longer. A few years later, the Los Angeles native signs to Cash Money, Young Money alongside his counterpart Drake. Most people including myself did not expect much from Tyga, since we all already knew what he considered to be 'music'. Surprisingly the young MC worked hard to grow his fanbase and become better. Laying out mixtape after mixtape with solid rhymes, the young rapper was on the road to something bigger than just ‘Coconut Juice’. It seemed as though Tyga decided to go a different route, and cater to a more hardcore hip hop crowd rather than stick to producing the same the mainstream pop hits that flood the airwaves.
At 22 the artist has accomplished a lot and continues to be on the right road to bigger and better things. The young MC released his second studio album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King, in February selling 61,000 copies in its first week. Now the YMCMB member is on his way to performing at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. The concert will feature performances from label mate Lil’ Twist and fellow Los Angeles native, YG. Tickets are currently sold-out, but if you tune into your favorite radio station maybe you can snag a pair.
