G.O.O.D. Music’s Tyga received a pretty hefty co-sign from Kanye West after dropping his “Taste” video. The rap star recently dished on getting a super salute from his label boss on the must-watch visual.
According to Tyga, Yeezy personally hit him up and called the “Taste” clip the best video ever.
“We dropped it the first day and all the reactions, like it was crazy,” he continues. “It got like, I don’t know…a million views like the first day, something crazy…Kanye hit me up and he was like, ‘Man, this is the best video of all time.’ … That was cool that he checked the video out [as] soon as it came out. And he was like on it, like one of the first people on it so, that was dope.” (Billboard)
A few days ago, Tyga dropped his new “Dip” and “Swap Meet” singles.
Recently, buzz developed about Tyga taking legal action against his former bosses Lil Wayne and Birdman‘s companies.
Tyga claims Young Money — run by Lil Wayne — shorted him “significant sums.” He goes on in his lawsuit to claim in 2016 both Cash Money and Young Money agreed to pay Tyga all the royalties that he says were owed to him for years, but he didn’t get squat. Tyga says he’s tried over and over to get paid, only to get stonewalled. (TMZ)
Last month, cameras spotted Tyga dining in the same New York restaurant as his ex-fiancée Blac Chyna.
They met in 2011 while filming the music video to his song Rack City and were later engaged in December 2012 before splitting up in 2014. And while Blac Chyna and Tyga had quite the tumultuous relationship timeline, the pair were spotted out together for dinner at Catch in the Meatpacking District of New York City on Sunday evening.
