Tyga’s Career Beginnings and Rise To Fame
Born as Michael Ray Stevenson on the 19th November 1989, Tyga who is of Vietnamese-Jamaican began his music career in 2004 at the teenage age of 15. The Hip Hop singer who launched his music career with the release of several mixtapes and demos, started off with the professional name, “Tyga” which he says is an acronym from “Thank You God Always”. The rapper later mounted the music stage officially in 2007 when he released the hit mixtape, Young on Probation.
Tyga’s Young Probation received wide positive reviews as well as caught the attention of his cousin, Travie McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes. This led to McCoy signing him to Decaydence Records. The two subsequently collaborated in the single, “Coconut Juice” with which Tyga introduced his debut independent album, No Introduction (2008).
Tyga’s unique rap style and flow later caught the attention of top record labels including Lil Wayne’s Young Money record label with whom he also closed a recording deal. Since then, the talented artist has gone on to release several successful albums/songs as well as work with big names in the industry including Chris Brown, The Game, Rick Ross, Jadakiss, Future, and more.
His Music Career Success Story
Tyga’s career just like many other entertainers have not been all rosy. But in all, the talented American rapper has earned himself a self-made millionaire status in the music industry.
Following the success of his debut mixtape and album, Tyga released his second album titled Careless World in February 2012. His third star-studded album, Hotel California banged at #7 on US Billboard 200.
In 2015, the hip hop singer released the Fan of a Fan album in collaboration with Chris Brown. His subsequent collaboration with Brown on the song, “Deuces” turned out a hit, landing an impressive 14th position on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Deuces also earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
On June 23rd, 2015, Tyga released his fourth album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty which featured many star artists including Justin Bieber and Young Thug. Being the first album under his independent Last Kings Record label, The Gold Album didn’t achieve much success compared to Tyga’s previous works. It sold only about 2,200 copies in the first week of its release.
The singer however, later bounced back with “Taste”, a single he released in May 2016 to massive success. Among other feats, the song peaked at #8 on Billboard Hot 100 and received RIAA’s 6x platinum. After “Taste”, Tyga has released several other successful singles including “Swish” and “Dip” which RIAA respectively certified gold and platinum.

Kingin’ with Tyga, Endorsement Deals and other Ventures
While nursing the somewhat disappointing returns from the 18th Dynasty album, Tyga turned on his business side. His Kingin’ with Tyga reality show premiered on 24th July 2015 on MTV2. It aired a total of 12 episodes for two seasons ended in September 2016. The show which documented the rapper’s career and lifestyle is believed to be one of his biggest net worth boosters.
Aside from his reality show, Tyga has landed a number of very lucrative endorsement deals and partnerships. Among them is his contract with Reebok from which he made $1.5 million. In July 2020, he launched a virtual kitchen brand called Tyga Bites in partnership with British-American business magnate, Robert Earl.
Tyga also owns a clothing and accessories line called Last Kings. He is also the creator of an adult film website, rackcityxxx.com which reportedly nets him around $12,000 every month. Tyga is in addition, the CEO of Last Kings Records. The label which he founded in 2016, signed a multi-million dollar music distribution contract with EMPIRE in 2017.
Though not as boxed up as he used to be at the beginning of his career, Tyga’s net worth is estimated at $5 million
Tyga’s Lavish Lifestyle and Luxury Collections
Aside from his career achievements, Tyga has garnered considerable attention for his extravagant lifestyle. The rapper prides the habit of spending handsomely on personal effects ranging from classy cars to jaw-dropping bling.
His icy collection of jewelry consists, but not limited to, one King Tut diamond necklace, two chain bracelets, one gold cell phone case, three gold animal cuffs, seven small pendants, and several expensive wristwatches.
Among the collection in his garage are Mercedes SLS Coupe, Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe, Mercedes G waggon, Mercedes SLS AMG, Mercedes SLR McLaren, Lamborghini Aventador and Vintago Fogiatio.
Tyga’s lavish spending on automobiles is however, not limited to himself. In 2015, the rapper bought his ex-girlfriend Kylie Jenner a $450,000 worth Ferrari for her 18th birthday. 2016 saw him gift her a Mercedes-Benz Maybach worth $220,000 for her 19th birthday.
Tyga’s Extravagance Lands Him into Legal Suits and Bankruptcy
In addition to his owned luxury collections, Tyga also spends fortune in renting accessories and other properties. An LA jeweler named Jason sued the rapper for not paying for some pieces of jewelry he borrowed from him. The total amount due plus damages and interest was over $180,000.
In a similar vein, a court ruling sometime revealed that Tyga owed $80,000 in rent for his Calabasas mansion. Moreover, Choice Motor Credit sued the rapper for owing them $448,503.44 for two luxury cars he purchased. The state of California as well revealed that Tyga owed almost $20,000 in unpaid taxes.
As a result of these, Tyga practically became broke. Rumors even had it then that he was living off his ex-girlfriend, Kylie Jenner. The rapper however, gave the media a shocker when he cleared off his debts in 2016. With this alongside his endorsement deals and career revamp moves, fans became optimistic that Tyga’s net worth could soar once more.
Meet Tyga’s Baby Mama Blac Chyna and their Son, King
Tyga has made quite interesting headlines for his dating choices and love life in general. He starting dating American model and dancer, Angela Renée White, professionally known as Blac Chyna in 2011. The two reportedly met during Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E Tour after-party in October and barely a month later, their relationship had become full-blown.
On the 16th of October 2012, Tyga and Chyna welcomed a son whom they named King Cairo Stevenson. They subsequently announced their engagement in December of the same year.
Unfortunately, the couple could not take their relationship to the next level as their love boat hit rock bottom in August 2014. Although the duo cited “personal differences” as the reason for their breakup, it later emerged that the actual reason was because Tyga began seeing Kylie Jenner.
Following their separation, Tyga and Chyna engaged in a heated custody battle over their son, King with the latter winning the case. But speaking in a recent video interview with Hip Hop Nation’s Swaggy Sie, Blac Chyna made it clear that she receives no child support from Tyga. The ex-couple however, usually put their differences aside for the sake of King. In October 2016, the estranged couple made out time to mark King’s 4th birthday with two separate parties.
The ex-couple also held a party for their son in Valencia, California in October 2017 to mark his 5th birthday. They however, seem to have decided to keep each other from their IG posts as Tyga posted a photo of only himself and King during his 7th birthday in October 2019.
Meanwhile, its quite interesting to note that both Tyga and Chyna coincidentally found their next loves in the Kardashian family. Few years after Tyga began dating Kylie Jenner, Chyna hooked up with Rob Kardashian, Kylie’s half brother with whom she has a daughter named Dream who is now King’s half sister.
The Reason Behind Tyga and Kylie Jenner’s Breakup
Tyga’s fame practically doubled the minute he started dating Kylie Jenner, the super-rich reality star and beauty entrepreneur of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Tyga first came in close contact with Kylie when he performed at her sister, Kendall Jenner’s sweet-sixteen birthday party in 2011. Kylie was only fourteen then and Tyga had just begun dating Blac Chyna. Thus, the duo didn’t start anything aside from becoming just friends.
For quite a long time after rumors broke in October 2014 that Tyga and Kylie have started dating, the two debunked the claims. Tyga was especially defensive about breaking up with Chyna because of Kylie.
DONT BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.

By December, after Tyga spent the Thanksgiving Holiday with Kylie, their dating rumors soared and the latter made her own denial in a rather subtle way!
in not trying to become a rapper, I'm not getting married, & I'm not pregnant….
— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 12, 2014
The lovebirds could however, not continue denying being a couple after Tyga bought Kylie a brand new Ferrari on her 18th birthday. After the birthday party, the pair went off on a vacation together. By then, fans could clearly read the handwriting on the wall!
Tyga’s relationship with Kylie has however, been an “off and on” one. Their first major breakup reportedly came in 2016, right before the year’s Met Gala on May 2nd. The rumored split was however short-lived as paparazzi caught the duo packing on the PDA in June. A few other splits and reconciliations followed before Tyga and Kylie finally wrapped things up in April, 2017. The fact that their split this time was for good became clear when Kylie went ahead to date Travis Scott with whom she now has a daughter.
Despite the extensive sniffing that has been going on over Tyga and Kylie Jenner’s breakups, the actual bone of contention remain a mystery. While Kylie claimed she ended the relationship because she felt she is really young, Tyga has remained hush-hush about his own reason.
Meanwhile, the media has severally suggested that Tyga’s romance with Kylie Jenner had business-related ulterior motives. On the contrary, Tyga who has made several appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians said his public relationship with Kylie “overshadowed” his talent and worth as a hardworking artist. He even suggested that Kylie was actually the one who needed him for her career to blossom in the black community.
While they are yet to plainly name the reason for going their separate ways, each of the now ex-couple seem to had realised they weren’t just meant to be together.
