Tyga Claims He 'Had a Lot to Do' with Kylie Jenner's Career

Tyga Claims He 'Had a Lot to Do' with Kylie Jenner's Career

Tyga is opening up about his relationship with Kylie Jenner.

During his interview on Queen Radio, host Nicki Minaj asked the 28-year-old rapper if he missed the 21-year-old makeup mogul/reality star.

“No, I’m good. I’m good love, enjoy,” Tyga responded before saying that he helped jumpstart Kylie‘s career.

“She always had a platform, and she was always destined to be where she was going to be, regardless,” Tyga said. “But, when I stepped in, and there was a lot of codes being taught, it was like, ‘You could do this. You should start this. You should start doing your hair like this, or you should do this. You should adapt because you need black people to f–k with you cause you need culture. If you aint got black people behind you, you aint got nothing — ain’t nobody going to listen. You can’t influence nobody.’ So, I had a lot to do with all that.”

Tyga also went on to claim that he had a lot to do with her Kylie Cosmetics line while saying he came up with the names and colors.

“I don’t need credit for it,” Tyga continued. “I don’t need to go online and tell people like, ‘I did this and I’m the one who helped her come with this colors and names on her lip line.’”

Kylie recently topped Forbes2018 “Richest Self-Made Women” list where the magazine estimated that she’s worth $900 million.

Tyga continued: “I’m not a bitter person. That’s like, if we break up, we break up. We had a good time and we kept moving. You know, we went our separate ways, and we both are doing good, you know what I’m saying?”

    Who the hell even knew who this guy was before he hooked up with her, just another ugly rapper with a stupid name, they’re a dime a dozen.

    Let’s see, she has 114 million Instagram followers, more them Beyonce and double Rihanna and he (let me look it up) hmm the account I could find has him 447 thousand, so less than a million……. Sure what she do without all these ugly (black) rappers she hooks up with.

    Ehm…. No one knew who he was and no one would have ever known it, if it wasn’t for Kylie, just as for almost all of the Kardashian-Jenner men (Scott Disick, Kylie’s current one, all of Khloe’s men, Kourtney’s boy toy, Kim’s 72 days’ husband, and the guys that Kendall is from time to time linked to).
    Kanye is the only one who already was “someone” – and maybe some of Khloe’s athletes, even though all of these men capitalized a lot from being with these women.

    Kardashian-Jenner is the same brand. If possible, Kylie is even more popular than Kim, because she appeals to the young generation. She’s a millennial, she’s just 21 now and she’s been the most popular for a good few years now, at least since she was 17…
    Kim was bigger earlier, but she’s closer to her forties now; she’s still the most famous of the oldest sisters, but since she’s a mum she changed and her brand now is more linked to Kanye.

    Tiga is a nobody who got himself a millionaire baby girlfriend who made him famous. We still don’t know what he did in his life, aside from making his teenage millionaire girlfriend gift him expensive cars.
