If it wasn’t for that underage girlfriend of his, Tyga might be having the worst week ever. The rapper dropped his fourth studio earlier this month, and in that time, it’s sold 2,200 copies. At least he still has 17-year-old Kylie to hold him down once he processes those numbers.
The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty was executive produced by Kanye West, and the entire Kardashian clan promoted it on social media, still, that couldn’t help the rapper’s struggle LP. Neither are reviews like this one from Pitchfork:
“Tyga is the guy in your group of friends who no one particularly likes but is always just kind of there. He spent the past year burning what few bridges he had left—most memorably, in a depressing triangle between himself, ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna, and labelmate Drake—and decorating his Egypt-themed clothing store like an Illuminati VFW hall. His pet Siberian tiger was confiscated by California wildlife authorities. He’s currently dating 17-year old Kylie Jenner; it’s a creepy and presumably illegal mess that doesn’t seem to bother her bro-in-law Kanye West, the executive producer of Tyga’s fourth album.”
Or this one from Reverb:
“Most of the tracks on the album sound like Tyga wrote them while staring in the mirror and drawing up the highest notions of himself. On “God Talk,” he likens himself to king of the mountain over a spastic violin beat and the rhymes affirm that he’s more than reality TV fodder.”
Have any of you purchased this album? If so, what did you think of it? And for those of you who didn’t, is his relationship with Kylie to blame or are you just not fans? Let us know in the comment section.
Tyga responded to a similar article by Complex magazine, saying the album didn’t sell because he was streaming it for free on Spotify.
@ComplexMag label I put it out for free on spotify last tues. the whole purpose was to stream it.Kuz label problems. Got millions of streams

It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
