Tyga believes he's one of the reasons Kylie Jenner has gotten so famous.
While being born into the most famous family in the world can help a lot in terms of your relevance, Kylie Jenner is claiming "self-made" status on her recent Forbes cover. While her current boo is none other than Travis Scott, who references her about a million times on Astroworld, Kylie's rise to superstardom began as she was dating Tyga. The two seemed inseparable for a long time until they split, leaving Tyga without the Kardashian machine to promote his work. With his comeback being well-documented in our recent editorial, T-Raw is ready for the spotlight to return to him and with his refreshed confidence, the artist is taking a lot of credit for his ex-girlfriend's status as one of the biggest celebrities in the world.
At this point in her career, Jenner may be more popular than her sister Kim, which is saying a lot. However, on a new episode of Nicki Minaj's Queen Radio show, the rapper shaded his ex in a subtle way, hitting her with the "Nah. I'm good, luv. Enjoy," after he was asked if he misses her. According to Complex, the comments didn't stop there as he even took credit for Kylie's jump to becoming a near-billionaire, saying about her relevance, “You need black people to fuck with you cause you need culture. I had a lot to do with all that."
He may have a point but he's not articulating himself in the best way to get it across. Sure, Tyga's connection to Kylie boosted her in the culture but he may be giving himself a little too much credit. What do you guys think?
