A lot has been going on in Tyga’s life of late. Tyga’s start to the year could have been better. Early 2014 found the ‘Coconut Juice’ star catching cases for bling he took from a celeb jeweler and didn’t pay for. The judge sided with Jason Arasheben, the jeweler, and slapped T-Raww with a $200k tab. More recently there’s been the public beef with his label after they pushed back the release of his fifth studio album. The Compton rapper’s frustrations reached a point where he threatened to leak the album to his fans. His Twitter rant rubbed fellow YMCMB artist Nicki Minaj the wrong way and loyal as she is to Weezy and the label, she reportedly unfollowed the rebellious Tyga.
Leave that poor child alone
Then there’s been the romance with the youngest of the Kardashian sisters, Kylie Jenner. Everyone with an opinion seems to be frowning on the relationship, making Tyga out to be some sort of cradle-snatcher. Kylie’s just 17 and Tyga will be turning 25 in a couple of days. “Where’s Child Protection Services when you need them?” went one online reader’s reaction to the affair. Comparisons with the R. Kelly-Aaliyah union have been drawn severally. But while Tyga can choose to ignore public opinion, he won’t be able to shrug off Kylie’s folks that easily. And word is that they’re also against whatever’s going on between the “impressionable” Kylie and the California MC. They think it “strange” that Tyga, who has known the Jenners for ages, only now wants to get close to Kylie. When she’s basking in her reality TV stardom. Kim Kardashian West particularly can’t get over the fact that T-Raww is the father of a 2 year-old with Blac Chyna.
And it gets worse
Could it get any worse for Tyga? Yep. He was arrested during a video shoot for his ’40 Mill’ single on Tuesday. An LAPD troop, geared up in riot helmets stomped into the location on Melrose Avenue, South LA, dispersed the crowd and put Tyga in a pair of bracelets. The crowd was getting too rowdy, prompting the law enforcers to intervene. He was released not long after being apprehended, but shooting had to be put on hold.
But after the turmoil things seem to be looking up again. Tyga announced a new release date for The Gold Album yesterday via his Twitter account. “#TheGoldAlbum dec 23!” he tweeted. And soon he will be out on the road with Trey Songz and Chris Brown. This Tyga might just get the last roar.
