BUSTED: Tyga's Cushy Upbringing REVEALED, Is His Gangsta Image A FRONT?

Photobucket

Unaired footage from a 2008 game show has Tyga revealing he grew up in a cushy Vally suburb....not the streets of Compton.  Is his image calculated & contrived...like most of these rappers?  Get more inside.....

Young Money rapper Tyga may have an image and public persona that screams "street" but unaired footage from a 2008 game show paints a VERY different story.

Though Tyga claims he grew up in Compton, footage from a 2008 show called "Bustas" (where contestants competed to see who could portray the "best" rap stereotypes) has the rapper saying he grew up in a well-to-do household in the Valley, and his parents drove a Range Rover.  Now one has to ask if his image is a "calculated" fraud. And why does he need to embody a stereotype to sell music? 

But even with all of his "cushy" upbringing, he never learned how to pronounce the word "amoeba."

Watch the clip here:

 

Sigh.

I been down with Tyga since '07 & when his first single dropped "Lime & Coconut" I was like WTF, but he said that he didn't do DRUGS or DRANK, plus he's Travis Mccoy's (Gym Class Heroes) REAL cousin so its clear he ain't no thug! The hoodish sh!t he ever did was knock up the QUEEN OF RATCHET: BLAC CHYNA! He looks like a poser with his BOBBLE HEAD LOOKIN A$$!

He isn't being ridiculed for

He isn't being ridiculed for having a well to do upbringing .The purpose was to show how many rappers live a facade and are ashamed of their truth.

So you're hating on someone

So you're hating on someone because they didn't grow up in the ghetto. Don't nobody want to grow up in a ghetto. Let's make that clear. And, just because you rap, doesn't mean you grew up impoverished.

Tyga has never claimed to be

Tyga has never claimed to be gangsta tho.

Real gangstas don't rap.

Real gangstas don't rap. Thats just a fact, but why is Tyga being ridiculed for having a decent upbringing? Also, he's never tried to act gangster so wheres this coming from? Gangster is the last thing I think of or see when Tyga comes into question. All rappers are goofy ass lames anyway so who really cares. Like, every last one of them. Rick Ross the former cop, is the worst of them all.

EXACTLY! He's acting just

EXACTLY! He's acting just like the rest of the celebrities. The public is so quick to think they know someone because they heard their music, saw their movie or read an interview, NOT possible. They need to be mad at their self for Assuming.

The Whole Young Money

The Whole Young Money Movement is a Fraud...all the REAL ganstas were with Cash Money and they all in jail... Wayne never been a thug, he been under baby since he was 12, and he wasn't slangin' nothing before then... Rick Ross, Jay-Z....all these niggas are frauds

Rick Ross paved the way for

Rick Ross paved the way for these clowns. Hell even if you look back at Dr. Dre he was rocking the hell out of some tight ass jeans and saying how he would never smoke weed. Years later he came out with the Chronic and got rich off of it. its all about what makes dollars and not about what makes sense.

I don't think Tyga has ever

I don't think Tyga has ever claimed to be a "gangsta", his first single, "Coconut Juice" also came out in 2008 and there was NOTHING about that song that screamed "gangsta." Although, his style has changed and his profile is a lot bigger...I think just shows how much of a cornball he was at 19 and that his rap skills needed some improvement *kanye shrug*

Of course he did. His job is

Of course he did. His job is not to be a "gangster", his job is to keep fooling niggers into being gangsters. DUH.
