Since Tyga went on a tweeting spree about his dissatisfaction with Young Money a few weeks ago, we haven’t heard any updates about his label (or for that matter, album) status, but a new interview with VIBE may offer some clues. Appearing on the cover of the publications first digital-only issue, Tyga gives a more in-depth look at his struggle inside Young Money.

The interview begins addressing the topic when Tyga’s asked if Young Money is part of the creative process on The Gold Album, to which he responds: 

“Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.”

He adds, “I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” and then elaborates:

“I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.”

Pretty shocking, eh? Read the full thing here.


[Update: Drake Responds (Kind Of)]

In the many beefs and disagreements with other rappers he’s had in the past few years, Drake’s never been one to come out in the open with a straight up diss (unless it’s in a song). Instead, he finds alternatives that some may call passive-aggressive, but are no doubt creative ways of getting back at his detractors. Necole Bitchie‘s just pointed out that he’s reacted to Tyga calling him “fake” by publicly showing some love to T-Raww’s ex on Instagram.

As you can see in the last photo in the gallery above, Drizzy liked three consecutive photos (all selfies) posted by Blac Chyna, who Tyga split up with a few months ago. But even before all this, he name-dropped the former stripper in his 2010 track “Miss Me,” and six months before Chyna and Tyga started dating, Drizzy and Lil Wayne were allegedly dropping $250,000 on her and her co-workers at the King Of Diamonds club. Perhaps Drake’s connection to Blac Chyna is what’s leading T-Raww to diss him?
