Over the past few weeks, Tyga has made more headlines for his behavior off-stage than on it. The 25-year-old rapper is allegedly linked romantically with Kylie Jenner and the rumors swirling around them have reached a fever pitch. Despite the allegations in his personal life, what can’t be denied is that the “Rack City” rapper has had one of the more colorful journeys in rap over the past few years. His fourth album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, saw him leave label Cash Money to release it independently. The album was executive produced by pal Kanye West and is straightforward rap, at least compared to his earlier commercial material. With a career that’s as interesting as his personal life, don’t be surprised if Tyga is energized by the chance to put aside all the tabloids and focus on playing music.
