He charges $0.4 million for one night of concert. He was considered broke till 2015, but in only 4 years he has successfully established himself as a millionaire.
Early Life and Career
Tyga’s real name is Michael Ray Nguyen Stevenson. He was born and raised in California, United States of America. During his early life, he faced many financial troubles and enjoyed a street life when his cousin introduced him to rap music. Tyga’s life started changing when he actually started considering this as a profession and started taking part in low-profile rap contests. In order to fulfill his dream of becoming a top rapper, he had to do some questionable things such as starring in adult rated movies. While saving money for his music album, he also created mixtapes and placed them online in an effort to get discovered by a music label company. His efforts came into fruition when he got his first music deal with Pete Wentz, who heard his music online after being referred by McCoy. He got a chance to perform with Fall Out Boy, and then later signed an album known as ‘No Introduction’.
His first three singles did not receive the expected success, and the producers decided to not release any more in order to not face any more losses. Luck favored Tyga when Lil Wayne heard his music in a remix of ‘Coconut Juice’ and signed him to his music company known as Young Money Entertainment.
Even though he collaborated with big names such as Chris Brown, Kanye West and T-pain, his album sales were still not very high. His second album was a collaboration with 2-chainz, The game, and Lil Wayne, which had even lower album sales than the first one.
Rise to Fame
He started getting real fame after he started dating the reality star and one of the most famous woman in the world, Kylie Jenner. Things started to get well for him and he was recognized, thanks to his girlfriend’s massive fame and stardom. He became a youth icon and started rising to top. His earnings began to fall through and he became a millionaire.
Till now, Tyga has made over 700,000 successful album sales. He has released over 4 studio albums and has sold 15 million songs as a single artist.
