At this point in his career, Tyga is an open book.
Yesterday, we learned that he doesn’t really fuck with Drake because he thinks the “Hold On, We’re Going Home” rapper is “fake,” he doesn’t get along with labelmate Nicki Minaj, and he basically feels like all of his YMCMB relationships have been forced on him just because that’s his label.
As the rest of his telling interview with VIBE surfaces, we’ve now learned a lot more about other crucial relationships in his life…namely, those he has with Blac Chyna, his baby mother, and Kylie Jenner, the 17-year-old reality star he’s rumored to be dating.
It seems Tyga thinks Blac Chyna isn’t looking up to the right women, as he discusses the “poison” that is reality TV and VH1, in comparison to respected role models like Oprah and Michelle Obama. As far as Kylie goes, Tyga claims it’s just another platonic relationship and he hangs out with the entire Kardashian family.
Check out part of the conversation below:
Is it hard for you to maneuver through this life and be a single father?
It’s definitely harder. Like you said, you got personal life things out there and then you got stuff out there that’s like…you can’t even really defend yourself, or else you’ll be spending your time doing it every day. I read something that said I kicked my baby’s mother out the house. Crazy stuff like that, that’s not true. We had our differences, yes. But we decided to take a break and do what’s best for King at this moment.
So it’s all love between you and Blac Chyna?
Yeah. We decided to take a break apart ‘cause you don’t wanna raise an emotionally unstable child, and that’s what it comes down to. It wasn’t my happiness, and it wasn’t her happiness. It was for the sake of King.
You’re saying a break, so there’s a possibility that you haven’t closed that door?
I mean, of course I love her. I had a kid with her for a reason. We were together for two years, but sometimes people need to see what life really is without the other person. [They need to experience life] without Prince Charming and really learn responsibility. You can’t change a person. A person is always gonna be who they came to the table [as]. You can improve a person’s potential, you can help guide that person but at the end of the day, they’re gonna make their own decisions.
Have you seen differences?
I think she’s improving a lot. She’s becoming more focused on her business. Because it’s hard, when you’re sitting there…I’m on tour, you’re thinking about if I’m with girls or not when the main thing is like, “Yo, I’m on tour making money, while you’re living in this big ass house, taking care of our beautiful son.” That’s the goal. A lot of women don’t realize this. They watch like…
Love & Hip Hop? [Laughs]
Yeah, Love & Hip Hop. I don’t even watch VH1, ‘cause it’s poison. A lot of women watch that stuff and it just takes them off the focus of what they think happiness is. As you get older the main goal is to have a family. That’s what it’s all about because you can be successful, have a lot of money, or whatever you do in life, but if you don’t have nobody to share it with, or family, it ain’t gonna matter.
Also, what I realized is black women don’t have a lot of role models as far as other black women. On some real shit, there’s black women that don’t look up to Oprah or Michelle Obama, because they’re looking at Instagram, they’re looking at VH1. I think that’s what the real problem is. It’s no real black [female] role models. As a black man, we have a lot of role models. Like looking at Diddy, Russell Simmons, Jay Z, Kanye, Tupac, those are people we can super relate to, so it’s easier for men.
You appear to be a wise 24. Do you feel older?
Yeah, exactly. I think life is just about being happy now. But you gotta’ really know what’s going on and that’s really what’s going on. Like black women man, it’s sad right now.
Is that what the relationship taught you?
No, I already knew that so when I was ready to do that, and I had a kid. I had a kid for a reason, not by accident. I was tryna’ build something. A lot of people don’t realize that until it’s too late, so all you can do is continue to help people and move forward. Maybe something will go off in that person’s head or whatever one day. But I can’t blame her ‘cause I understand. It’s how we were raised, and then you go look at a white family—not to sound racist or anything—but those families stick together. It’s way different.
The Kardashians fit the profile. Speaking of, you’re not dating Kylie Jenner?
Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie… I’ve known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced Chyna to Kim about a year ago. So everybody’s been cool, but like it’s just so hard, their world is different. If somebody wanna hang out, cool, I’m not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her [Kylie], her sister [Kendall], I hang out with Scott [Disick] sometimes, I hang out with Khloe sometimes. But people wanna take the situation [with Kylie] to the next level.
To be fair, we’ve seen Tyga with Kylie Jenner a lot more than we’ve seen him with any other Kardashian family member. #JustSaying. Leave your thoughts below.
