Young Money rapper Tyga is letting his voice get heard in relation to the Internet blogs and why some unnamed online heads are more concerned with traffic than quality music posts.
Although resisting to drop names, Tyga aired out his problems with some aspects of the blogosphere.
“Motherf*ckers is d*ck riders. Motherf*ckers don’t post the sh*t that they really, really love. They post the sh*t that the readers want to see and gets views. It’s like, Internet world. I be seeing sh*t and I be like, “C’mon dude.” Even on some fashion sh*t, I check out y’all site and other sites and I’m like, “Man, I had them sh*ts six months ago.” People aren’t really seeing what I’m doing. When I finally do it, n*ggas think like, “He’s just biting this person.” N*gga, I don’t shop anywhere else but Paris. I don’t even buy my clothes in the States. On some real sh*t. I know what I be doing, that’s why I be threatening to other people. I don’t really worry about what the blogs say because I still sell out shows and I still got my fan base that’s loyal to me. And I love what I’m doing.” (Complex)
He also emphasized growing up and watching the fashion trends of artists like Fabolous, Cam’ron and Lil Wayne.
“It’s real sh*t, though. I ain’t gonna name names or anything, but I be seeing sh*t and I be like, “Yo, that’s not sick.” I can’t say that a lot of things I be seeing is sick. When I was in high school, I looked up to Fab and I looked up to Wayne and Cam’ron. I’d be like, “Man, them n*ggas are sick.” That was my era that I felt like artists were just dope. Like, “These n*ggas are sick. They are swagged out.” That’s what I wanted to see. At the same time, I was an Internet fan so I liked the lyrical sh*t, but I didn’t want to dress like them. I liked them when I wanted to listen to some lyrical, crazy stuff and be in my own world, but if I’m around my homies, I’m driving, I’m getting dressed, I’m about to out, this is what I want to hear. Like, I was a big Cam’ron fan, and I still am a fan, but he was one of them dudes that was really trendsetting. You gotta think–he’s from the East Coast. His whole style is East Coast, New York. Me from L.A., saying that? I didn’t say Snoop. I could say somebody like that, but that’s the style that I had f*cked with when I was younger.” (Complex)
Blogs and fashion aside, Tyga recently got announced to perform at the Adult Video News (AVN) awards this winter.
AVN Media Network is pleased to announce hip-hop sensation Tyga will be performing at the 2013 AVN Awards. Sin City will be renamed Rack City after the chart topping rapper performs at the show’s 30th anniversary celebration. “It’s going to be a lot of fun being in Vegas, going to the awards and performing on stage,” Tyga told AVN. “Once I saw it on TV I knew how big it was. It’s the 30th anniversary, and I know it’s a big night. I got a little taste of porn now through doing my movie and playing the awards is going to be something else. I’m really looking forward to it, and I plan on having a lot of fun.” (Ring Side Report)
The announcement comes weeks after Tyga revealed his business ventures into the adult entertainment industry.
No, this is not some sex-soaked dream sequence Tyga’s cooked up in his mind–it’s a scene from Rack City: The XXX Movie, his adult video directorial debut. Yes, the hottest young hip-hop star in the world produced, directed and appears in his own porno. For anyone familiar with Tyga’s music, particularly his most recent hit track, “Make it Nasty,” it comes as no surprise that the heavily-tattooed emcee is fixated on the female form and enamored with sex. When you’re a rich and famous rapper, sex with beautiful women is part of the standard benefits package. (AVN)
