Fresh off dropping his Careless World album, Tyga graces the cover of YRB Magazine. 2012 looks to be a promising year for the Young Money artist.
“Thank You God Always” isn’t just an acronym for California rapper Tyga – it’s also his motto for life. Growing up without a father and having a mother do a bid in jail while in his teens, Michael Nguyen Stevenson has seen his share of hardships. Adversities of this nature would normally break the strongest of characters, but Tyga views his situations as motivation for becoming the person he is today. The Southern California native’s constant infatuation with music led him to a chance meeting in a shoe store with Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, and instantly McCoy became a fan of this young rapper’s skills. As his mentor (as some would call it), GCH front man invited Tyga to join the band on tour. While working and recording with McCoy, Tyga would have another encounter that would ultimately change his life.
