Tyga recently sat down for an interview with VIBE and opened up about his career, family, the gossip surrounding him, and most interestingly, the fact the he does not like fellow YMCMB rapper, Drake.
In the lengthy interview, Tyga is asked if Young Money is part of his creative process, to which he responds, “Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.” When asked if he is trying to make a split from YMCMB he follows stating, “Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.”
“I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me,” the 24-year-old rapper stated. “I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.”
This is not Tyga’s first time showing his discontent with the label. Earlier this month, he went on a Twitter tirade against YMCMB saying that they were holding him hostage.
