Tyga showed up to The Breakfast Club this morning and addressed a gang of hot topics related to his personal and professional life.
The first and most pressing issue was the long-running rumor that he's dating 17-year-old reality star Kylie Jenner, which was fueled again recently when Amber Rose interjected her two cents.
"I didn't leave my family for Kylie, that's ridiculous," Tyga said, adding that his split with his son's mother, Blac Chyna, was for them to be able to raise an 'emotionally stable kid.'"
Despite the messy headlines, the move seems to be working for everyone. "It's cool now," he said. "It ain't no pressure."
The "Rack City" rapper went on to admit that he's surprised that hanging out with Kylie is even a story in the news cycle. He says they've been neighbors for years, long before anyone cared about their relationship.
Tyga believes the attention to the relationship is a cultural thing. He thinks white people understand that people who hang out around each other are "friends," whereas in Black culture, it's assumed they're "smashin'."
"Like, we're really friends," he said. "I respect her mom... [Kylie's] a good person."
As for his relationship with YMCMB, particularly his beef with Drake and the Twitter comments he posted then deleted after hearing Drizzy's diss record "6PM in New York," he simply attributes it to him having "a light-skinned moment." But he makes his stance clear: "I don't f**k with him as a person because the experiences that I had with him personally... his music is great and it's undeniable," he said. "It's just personal experiences that I had with him... I feel like he's a nice guy on the outside, but he's not genuine."
Tyga went on to explain that he "got into it" with another label mate, Nicki Minaj, over a song, but he considers the fight something that a brother and sister might go through. "I f**k with her 100 percent," he said.
The track "was actually 'Truffle Butter," he said, which landed on Nicki's The PinkPrint. He was on the record but was taken off the final version. (Lil Wayne and Drake are on it.) He took the cut extra hard because, "me and YG were the first to put that sound out," he said.
