Tyga Believes Kanye Is ‘the Farrakhan of Rap,’ Addresses Drake Beef
Tyga recently spoke to 92.3 in Los Angeles about his upcoming album Rawwest N***a Alive and the rapper revealed that while Kanye didn't work on the album, Tyga credits Yeezy for setting a standard and cultivating creativity and camaraderie among younger rappers.
“Nah, he didn’t work or do anything on this album,” Tyga explained. “But he did—We actually been working on a few joints. He working on this joint that I got with him, that’s crazy. And then I was working with him on his album. He got some crazy stuff. He played some joints the other day. He got some monsters. He’s the God of this. He’s like the Farrakhan of rap for everybody. He’s just the leader of this. And then he really reaches out and incorporates the younger generation. And gets everybody involved. And that’s what I like. He ain’t tryna put artists against other artists. He’ll do a song with Drake. He’ll do a song with whoever. Because he want everybody to work together.”
Tyga famously feuded with his labelmate Drake but when he was asked if there was tension at the recent Kardashian Christmas party that both artists' attended, he shared that things are fine between them now.
“Nah, it ain’t no tension,” he said. “We cool. We on good terms. We just wasn’t [communicating]. I think that’s the main thing. It’s like when you got history with somebody and then you stop communicating with a person, it can go any way. And anybody can assume anything. And then it just goes from there. And you got people in your ear. I think you should always be able to communicate with people if you have history with them. And then ‘Ye he put us in a room together when he was doing his fashion show. And I didn’t even know he was there. And then we seen each other. And we gave each other a hug and we just chopped it up.”
