All it takes is a casual look at his career and its stellar accomplishments to realise that Tyga is one star who knows what he wants and exactly how he’s going to get it.
Tyga, whose stage name stands for Thank You God Always, sprang into the spotlight when his debut album, No Introduction, was released by Decaydance Records in 2008 and earned him an avid following among the college crowd. He also rubbed shoulders with -and learned from- several of the greatest stars in the Hip-Hop world, such as Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Fabolous, and Birdman. Today, he is one of America’s foremost rappers as well a reality TV star in hot demand on the stage and screen.

Born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson in November 1989, Tyga is of Jamaican and Vietnamese descent. Although he grew up in the rough and ready streets of Compton, CA, he was too creative -and determined- to be tainted by the area’s negativity. He wanted a career in music so he went for it, recording mixtapes and making the right connections.
One of those was his cousin Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, who, after listening to some of Tyga’s mixtapes, offered him a chance to tour with the group and later signed him to the independent label Bat Squad Records. Word of Tyga’s talent quickly spread through the music industry and resulted in his sharing the stage with Lil Wayne and Fall Out Boy at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.
Tyga’s solo career was launched with the single “Coconut Juice’. An album, No Introduction, followed in 2008. Three years later, he signed with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records, and Republic Records and released a studio album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King. This milestone, which featured guest vocals from Lil Wayne, Chris Richardson, and Drake, includes the singles ‘Faded’, ‘Rack City’, ‘Far Away’, ‘Make It Nasty’ and ‘Still Got It’.
A third album, Hotel California, came out in 2013 and resulted in three popular singles: “Show You”, “For the Road”, and “Dope”, which featured Future, Chris Brown, and Rick Ross respectively. The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, Tyga’s fourth album was released in June 2015. The following month, a reality show, Kingin' with Tyga, debuted on MTV2.
