Last week's announcement of Tyga joining G.O.O.D. Music was met with some skepticism from rap fans, many of whom took the opportunity to clown on Tyga via social media. But while some were busy trolling, a few of the internet's favorite rappers actually came to Tyga's defense.
As XXL points out, Vince Staples posted a picture of Tyga's 2015 song "Ice Cream Man," which appeared on his Fuk Wut They Talkin Bout mixtape, on Instagram. After fans responded with anti-Tyga comments, Tyler, the Creator jumped in to offer his support. “Bruh I swear I’m the only one hyped about tyga on good music," Tyler wrote. Vince quickly replied back, noting, “These kids are losers lol don’t know who they want to be or who they like.”
Tyga admittedly hasn't been the most popular rapper over the past few years, receiving a lot more attention for his relationship with Kylie Jenner than his music. Clearly Kanye West, Pusha T, and the crew saw something in him, though, and his deal with the label was a result of that promise. His new song "Gucci Snakes" with fellow G.O.O.D. Music artist Desiigner has actually won some praise online, and the label obviously has more big plans in store for him. Is it possible for the internet trolls to put aside their skepticism of Tyga and give his music another shot? We'll have to see, but clearly Vince Staples and Tyler, the Creator are solidly in his corner on this one.
