Eye of the Tyga - Tyga is an interesting figure in hip-hop and seemingly now Hollywood. The artist, affectionately referred to as “T” by the Kardashian-Jenners, has had a series of ups and downs in his career. He’s secured another up this week by signing with a new record label. More on that later, but let’s take a trip through all of Tyga’s good and bad times. — BET Staff (Photo: David Livingston/Getty Images)

Back When Tyga Was Just a Cub - Remember when Tyga’s claim to fame was being Travie McCoy’s cousin and he had that strange song “Coconut Juice”? We're not sure if this was a good time for Tyga or a bad time, to be honest.(Photo: Jamie McCarthy/WireImage)

The Rob (No Kardashian) - Remember in 2008 when Tyga had his jewelry robbed by people assumed to be in the camp of 40Glocc? But then Tyga went and said there were other robbers and 40Glocc’s people robbed the robbers? What?(Photo: Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage)

Racks on Racks on Racks - All it took was one massive single to make Tyga a star. In 2011, the third single proved to be the charm as ?Rack City? was Tyga?s big moment to rhyme about Vegas nights and hip-hop opulence. And it worked. It was certainly the shape of things to come, right?(Photo: Cash Money/Young Money, Republic Records)

The YMCMB Era - Tyga?s second studio album Careless World: The Rise of the Last King, is still his most successful album to date, proving that as part of YMCMB alongside stars like Drake and Nicki Minaj, he too could shine.(Photo: Last Kings Entertainment)

4-Star Hotel - His third studio album, Hotel California, was pretty successful under the YMCMB umbrella too and featured cuts like ?Dope? with Rick Ross as well as the buzz single ?Molly.?(Photo: Young Money, Cash Money, Republic Records)

That Cash Money Chokehold Though - Like Lil Wayne, Tyga went through his own battle with Cash Money, enduring album delays and shady business. The situation was bad all around.(Photo: Frazer Harrison/BET/Getty Images for BET) 

Family (Un)Ties - The Drake/Tyga beef was so weird, stemming from what seems like just success envy. In an interview back in 2013 with Los Angeles?s Power 106, Tyga sent some thinly veiled shots at Drake in the form of not rescuing him if he had a raft and had to choose between Drake, Nicki Minaj or Lil Wayne. It all went downhill from there, especially after Tyga had his Cash Money woes and ultimately called Drake "fake." Eventually Kanye West helped squash the beef that should?ve never happened. (Photos from Left: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for Yeezy Season 3, Grant Lamos IV/Getty Images)

#NeverForget - The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, Tyga?s fourth studio album, arrived via Spotify premiere in 2015. It went on to sell a little over 2,000 copies. Womp womp.(Photo: Last Kings Entertainment)

A Shot at His Own Reality - This was weird, but maybe after all this time it proved to be a good idea. In 2015, MTV2 gave Tyga his own reality show, Kingin With Tyga, where he got to brag through six episodes about how lavish his life was. It seemed disingenuous at the time, but since the show made a comeback on MTV this past year now that T is headfirst in Hollywood, perhaps this feels more natural for everyone? (Photo: MTV)

Te Quiero, Kylita - Make-ups to breakups, underage to of age, engagements to “nah not really,” Tyga and Kylie Jenner look like they’re here to stay. While Tyga has managed to secure a solid role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, do we consider that a win?(Photo: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for Yeezy Season 4) 

All of Them Repos - While it seems like ?T? gifts Kylie with a new car every holiday, he?s out here handing his own rides in. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tyga?s Ferrari was repossessed and just recently his Maybach was repo?d too. Eek.(Photo: Tyga via Instagram)

Ain’t No Fun If the Exes Can’t Have None - Now look, we all know that Blac Chyna and Tyga were a thing. They share a child, etc., etc. But let’s all focus for a moment on the real winning here. Here’s a couple who has secured their child’s future by aligning with the SAME DAMN FAMILY. Chyna is about to deliver a Baby Kardashian with future hubby Rob and Tyga is geared to be King Raww of the Kardashian-Jenner empire. You can’t make any of this up, but let’s applaud them both for their power moves.(Photo: Sharpshooter Images/Splash News)

A Finely Tailored Lawsuit - Tyga’s had a handful of legal squabbles. From being sued by three video vixens in his “Make It Nasty” video due to forced nudity to owing a jeweler after not paying for jewelery and later owing a landlord for unpaid rent, Tyga’s been in court a few times to say the least. (Photo: Michael Kovac/AMA2015/Getty Images for FIAT) 

Cash Rules Everything Around T - After all these unpaid bills and lawsuits, is this picture even valid? Maybe his T-Raww sneaker sales saved him, but then again, he's a reality star now with a brand new label deal.(Photo: Tyga via Instagram)

Ain?t Nothing But a G.O.O.D. Time - The jokey memes have already surfaced, suggesting this was all Kylie Jenner?s doing, but as of this week, Tyga has become an official signee to Kanye West?s G.O.O.D. Music. This is some strong familial tie happening here. Is Tyga locked into both the label and the family forever? Stay tuned.(Photos from Left: Bryan Steffy/Getty Images for iHeartMedia, Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for Yeezy Season 3)
