Tyga Career

Tyga’s career began with him releasing a multitude of demo tapes and mixtapes. His 2007 debut mixtape, Young On Probation, garnered the attention of fellow California rapper and Gym Class Heroes lead vocalist, Travie McCoy. Seeing talent in the young artist, McCoy offered him a record deal with the independent label DCD2 Records (known then as Decaydence Records). Tyga also formed the record label G.E.D. Inc. (Grinding every day, Getting every dollar, or Getting educated daily) around the time, the same imprint that helped launch the career of fellow West Coast rapper Schoolboy Q, with whom he’s worked with early in his career. Tyga also has a G.E.D. Inc tattoo above his right eyebrow.

On June 10, 2008, Tyga released his debut independent album, No Introduction, on Decaydance Records. The album was preceded by the single “Coconut Juice”, featuring McCoy.

On February 16, 2018, Tyga released his sixth studio album, Kyoto. The album was panned by critics and sold poorly, becoming his first album to fail to chart anywhere.

On May 16, 2018, Tyga released the single “Taste” featuring Offset of Migos. The song was a hit, becoming one of the biggest songs of summer 2018 and peaking at number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It marked Tyga’s first entry on the Hot 100 in three years, since 2015’s Ride Out, and is certified 4x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song is considered the catalyst for Tyga’s return to the mainstream music spotlight after almost 5 years of poor sales and negative reviews, being considered his “comeback” record.

In 2019, YG released the single “Go Loko”, which featured Tyga. He stated, “We wanted to do something different to kinda try to bring all Latins together” and “Even YG could tell you, he grew up around all Mexicans, so we really wanted to do something to give back to the culture.”

In July 2020, Tyga partnered with businessman Robert Earl to launch a virtual kitchen brand called Tyga Bites, which uses existing restaurants’ kitchens to produce branded menu items such as boneless chicken wings for delivery service only.
