The rising YMCMB star's pornographic film "Rack City: XXX" has been nominated for three Adult Video News Awards.
TygaÂ must haveÂ really hit it out the park withÂ his controversialÂ directorial debut, seeing as it'sÂ beenÂ immediately recognizedÂ as one ofÂ the top adult films of 2012. FeaturingÂ a slew ofÂ reputable pornÂ stars, it'sÂ been nominated for "Best Wall-to-Wall Release,"Â "Best Music Soundtrack" and "Best Oral Sex Scene" at the 2013 AVN Awards.Â His hit single "Rack City," for which the film is named, is featured on the soundtrack.
Steve Javors,Â Adult Media News'Â managing editor, praised the rapper's work ethic, stating that "he paid attention to detail, was conscientious about getting good performances from his castÂ and really wanted to put his personal stamp on this project."
TygaÂ produced andÂ directed the filmÂ withÂ the help of longtime friend and formerÂ roommateÂ Justice Young, who is involved in the porn industry.Â The rapperÂ also makes anÂ appearanceÂ in the film inÂ aÂ non-sexual role, whichÂ expands on the hedonisticÂ conceptsÂ introduced inÂ hisÂ âMake It Nasty"Â video.Â
The 2013 AVN Awards willÂ take place onÂ on January 19th at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.Â Tyga will beÂ making a special appearance at the ceremony,Â performingÂ a brief set before the winners are announced.Â
Judging by the increasing amount ofÂ hype surrounding young T Raww lately, his chances are looking pretty good.
