18. Tyga Admits He Had a Cushy Upbringing
Date: December 3
If you relied on Tyga—Travie McCoy's cousin, who signed to YMCMB after sitting on Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz' shelf, and who was once most famous for eating a couple of hundred dollar bills on camera—to be your source of true rough and tumble music, then the release of this 2008 video may break your heart.
TMZ got their hands on clips from an MTV game show pilot in which Tyga admits to an easy upbringing in the L.A. Valley, his parents driving a Range Rover, and getting his rap name from his mom, who said he looked like Tiger Woods. In the end, Tyga may not have been raised in the struggle, but his rhymes from five years ago are the epitome of it.
