Young Money's Tyga is really about that ancient life after reportedly throwing down over $100,000 to deck-out an Egyptian-made tomb for his new apparel clothing line store launch.
According to reports, Tyga made the big purchase and even went as far as to import sand from Egypt.
Sources tell us, Tyga spent more than $120,000 decorating the newly-opened Melrose clothing store called Last Kings -- the tomb was just a drop in the bucket. We're told $100,000 went toward painting the place's ceilings like the Sistine Chapel -- and the remaining money went toward the tomb, as well as a bunch of other Egyptian-made Pharaoh-phernalia ... like the black and gold guard statues ... and sand. Yes, Tyga actually paid to import sand from Egypt ... and his store is 10 miles from the beach. (TMZ)
