Young Money’s Tyga has stepped up to address previously unreleased footage spreading online today (December 3) of him taking part in a reality television game show called “Bustas.”
Rather than deny the comments, Tyga said his age and the opportunity to be on television influenced what he said.
“When u 14 an ambitious u don’t give a f*k about anything. Scripted tv isn’t that what we all live for.Hahahaha,” Tyga tweeted December 3rd.
“That was funny Hahahaha”

Footage of Tyga’s show antics surfaced across the Internet Monday (December 3) morning.
Rapper Tyga enjoyed a cushy upbringing in the Valley — NOT Compton — at least that’s what the rapper said on a game show back in 2008 … and TMZ has obtained the unaired footage. The show was called “Bustas” — where wannabe-rappers compete against each other to see who can embody ugly rap stereotypes the best … playing borderline-offensive games like “Guess the Rapper By His Grill” and “Is This a Real Rolex?” Tyga appeared on the show … and immediately sacrificed any semblance of street cred in the process … claiming he grew up in a well-to-do household in the Valley, and his parents drove a Range Rover. But Tyga — who has since claimed he grew up in Compton — insisted, “I’m still street.” (TMZ)
In another segment of the show, he catches heat over a freestyle rap.
Thankfully for Tyga, the show was never picked up and the clip never made it to air … until now. The highlight: “Bustas” culminates with a freestyle rap, in which the contestants are asked to incorporate buzz words like “amoeba” into their raps, and Tyga’s so bad … he gets his ass boo’d off stage. (For the record, Tyga does not know how to pronounce the word “amoeba”) It’s pretty bad — but you should check out the video to see if Tyga actually loses the entire show. (TMZ)
Outside of the now-dated show, Tyga recently welcomed his first child.
It’s time to break out the cigars and congratulate Tyga on his newest title: father. The YMCMB artist and his girlfriend, Blac Chyna, welcomed their first child, King Cairo Stevenson, on Tuesday (October 16). The 22-year-old rapper (born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson) tweeted out a photo of him cradling the newborn in his arms to his followers with the simple caption: “Most Amazing feeling ever #Blessed #2Kings @KingCairo.” Chyna tweeted that she carried the bundle of joy for 40 weeks and that he weighed in at 7 pounds, 1 ounce: “Welcome King Cairo Stevenson 7lbs 1 oz ……. #blessed !!!!” (MTV)
