Tyga Called Tupac "Dad," Internet Explodes

He explains how much of an influence the late legend is to him.

Published March 8, 2016

The Internet has dragged Tyga before, but it’s usually for something he’s done outside of the studio or with Kylie Jenner.

Well now, the web is taking aim at a recent series of tweets the California rapper made about Tupac, especially the one where he called the late West Coast legend “Dad.”

The tweet features a split of Tyga and Tupac posing similarly and wearing the same version of a Duke basketball jersey. In subsequent tweets he explains how ‘Pac taught him more than his own father and called him an "inspiration." He also shared with followers a pic of a letter from his dad, who’s serving a life-sentence in prison, and his response to that letter.

Tyga didn’t respond to anyone who mentioned him during the series of tweets. He’s currently touring in Australia so it’s harder to hear the haters being on the opposite side of the world.
