Tyga calls Tupac “Dad”
Tyga is now referring to another American man as his “dad” even though we all know his real father is from Vietnam.
The 27-year-old rapper (Real name Michael Ray Stevenson) posted a photo of himself alongside the late rap legend, Tupac Shakur and captioned “Dad”.
Maybe dad in the rap game but from a long time interview, Tyga has always referred to Lil Wayne as his ‘dad’. So why the change?
Tyga was born in Compton, California and when he was 12, his parents moved to Gardena, California. Then on a TV show, “Bustas” on 2012, he claimed he grew up in a “well-to-do” home in the Valley, where his parents drove Range Rover. He also said his name Tyga was from his mother who used to call him Tiger Woods.
From his Wikipedia page, its reported that there has been speculation that his claims on the show were satirical and not to be taken seriously. Tyga responded to the video’s leak on Twitter: “When u 14 an ambitious u don’t give a fuk about anything. Scripted tv isn’t that what we all live for.Hahahaha”
He grew up listening to Fabolous, Lil Wayne, Cam’ron and Eminem.
