Drake and Tyga’s social media tit-for-tat reminds me of junior high school. While we weren’t as well-versed in the Internet back then, the pettiness was ever-present in spirited cafeteria arguments that sometimes amounted to hand-to-hand combat. The difference between then and now is that these boys, who are really grown men, are allowed to be much more passive aggressive. The ability to use memes, lofty hashtags and subliminally tweet are the ultimate knockout punches in this new age of “bullying” and “beefing.”
The problem is, Drake just turned 28 years old and Tyga is closing in on 25 with a birthday this week. When will these oversized boys become actual men?
It’s sad to see two successful rappers trading barbs on Instagram and Twitter as though they are running for some form of office. It doesn’t build their brand. It puts their immaturity on a pedestal. Worst of all, it forces the women who choose to form relationships with them to be a part of the drama, and to be seen as mere objects; pawns in their virtual game to pass around, exploit their sexual pasts with (whether factual or not) and spike views courtesy of their drama. There’s nothing cute about virtually flirting with the ex-girlfriend and mother of your adversary’s child to get to them, nor is it to cute to palm the backside of another man’s ex and make her the main love interest in your music video to get even. C’mon now…
If you’ve missed the pissing contest, Tyga sounded off about his discontent with fellow Young Money labelmates Drake and Nicki Minaj in an interview with VIBE Magazine: “I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people,” he explains. “We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together.”
Drake responded with a liking-spree of the pictures of Tyga’s ex-girlfriend, Blac Chyna, and members of his OVO crew took subliminal jabs at his estranged labelmate. Cute.
It all culminated in Blac Chyna’s Twitter account being hacked, with someone allegedly running off a string of tweets as Chyna in a full confession to being a gold digger and more. This came after she posted a s*xy Instagram pic that she tagged the “Take Care” rapper in.
Throwing Blac Chyna, Kylie Jenner and Drake’s ex, Dollicia Bryan, in the mix made the drama even more intriguing, and even more sad for the rappers. Supposedly, the two have a record in the works. Wouldn’t it be entertaining if the two came together, held hands and let it all go on wax? If Drake and Chris Brown could do it, why not? At the end of the day though, it would be a cheap tactic for attention and spins for a record that would’ve garnered attention regardless.
Cyber bullying is a real issue in our communities. It is incredibly hard to fight and contain these days, and it becomes even harder to stop when those with notoriety and fame do more work to keep it going in our society as a way to demean versus helping to combat it. It is time to hang up the lethal assaults that are bound to 140 characters and move on to handling things the adult way: a phone call or meeting.
Stop dragging your dirty laundry, drama and the past women in your life along these E-streets, fellas.
“You Can’t Change A Person” Tyga Says He And Blac Chyna Are Taking A Break Because She Needs To Learn Responsibility
Rapper Tyga told it all in a recent interview with Vibe. Not only did he speak about the fact that he doesn’t really get along with Drake Nicki Minaj, he also stated, once again, that he and Kylie Jenner are not an item. (Time will tell.)
But of all the tea he spilled, the most interesting part of the interview came when he talked about the relationship status between he and his girlfriend and mother of his child Blac Chyna. The reason behind their temporary break is quite interesting. Before he got into all of that though, he took the time to clear up some rumors.
“I read something that said I kicked my baby’s mother out the house. That’s not true. We had our differences, yes. But we decided to take a break and do what’s best for King at this moment.
We decided to take a break apart ‘cause you don’t wanna raise an emotionally unstable child, and that’s what it comes down to. It wasn’t my happiness, and it wasn’t her happiness. It was for the sake of King.”
On whether or not there’s a possibility they’ll get back together.
“I mean, of course I love her. I had a kid with her for a reason. We were together for two years, but sometimes people need to see what life really is without the other person. [They need to experience life] without Prince Charming and really learn responsibility. You can’t change a person. A person is always gonna be who they came to the table [as]. You can improve a person’s potential, you can help guide that person but at the end of the day, they’re gonna make their own decisions.
I think [Blac Chyna is] improving a lot. She’s becoming more focused on her business. Because it’s hard, when you’re sitting there…I’m on tour, you’re thinking about if I’m with girls or not when the main thing is like, “Yo, I’m on tour making money, while you’re living in this big ass house, taking care of our beautiful son.” That’s the goal. A lot of women don’t realize this. They watch like… [Love & Hip Hop.] I don’t even watch VH1, ‘cause it’s poison. A lot of women watch that stuff and it just takes them off the focus of what they think happiness is. As you get older the main goal is to have a family. That’s what it’s all about because you can be successful, have a lot of money, or whatever you do in life, but if you don’t have nobody to share it with, or family, it ain’t gonna matter.”
Let’s pause here, shall we? Perhaps I read this wrong but it does seem like Tyga was saying that Blac Chyna was kind of just sitting around waiting for him to bring his paycheck home. And because she was bored at home, she started to accuse him of cheating. And because that can get really tired, really quickly, Tyga decided he was going to teach her a lesson and show her what’s it like to be independent? Did I understand that correctly?
But then a part of it also sounds like maybe he was creeping on the road and felt like it wasn’t her place to question him about it because she wasn’t contributing financially to the household.
However, taking care of a child is a job.
That’s really neither here nor there. It’s interesting that Tyga had these expectations for Blac Chyna when that probably wasn’t the woman he met initially. You know what they say about expecting people to be someone they’re not.
Anyway, Tyga got even deeper saying that Black women struggle with ambition and independence because we don’t have enough role models…or we’re looking up to the wrong ones.
Also, what I realized is black women don’t have a lot of role models as far as other black women. On some real sh-t, there’s black women that don’t look up to Oprah or Michelle Obama, because they’re looking at Instagram, they’re looking at VH1. I think that’s what the real problem is. It’s no real black [female] role models. As a black man, we have a lot of role models. Like looking at Diddy, Russell Simmons, Jay Z, Kanye, Tupac, those are people we can super relate to, so it’s easier for men.
I think life is just about being happy now. But you gotta’ really know what’s going on and that’s really what’s going on. Like black women man, it’s sad right now.
Is that what the relationship taught you?
No, I already knew that so when I was ready to do that, and I had a kid. I had a kid for a reason, not by accident. I was tryna’ build something. A lot of people don’t realize that until it’s too late, so all you can do is continue to help people and move forward. Maybe something will go off in that person’s head or whatever one day. But I can’t blame her ‘cause I understand. It’s how we were raised, and then you go look at a white family—not to sound racist or anything—but those families stick together. It’s way different.
Ugh. That logic is a bit backwards. We have role models. It’s just about who you chose to look at. And that goes for Black men too, all people really. We all know for every Jay Z, there are at least a handful of Jay Williams.
I’m just a bit confused. Either Blac Chyna was singing a different tune when they first got together or Tyga just really didn’t take the time to find out what type of woman he was not only choosing to date but have a child with. Surely, he suspected that Blac Chyna was more of a Mimi Faust than a Michelle Obama… it just never seemed to bother him before.
Either way, what do you make of his comments?
Back in September, rumors first started swirling that rapper Tyga, 24, was possibly involved with Kim Kardashian’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner. It all started after they were seen partying together (and there is video of him encouraging her to drink a shot). He shut down such rumors when they first came about:
“I HATE BLOGS!”
“DON’T BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.”
But the rumors continued and only heated up when the two were spotted hanging out more and more, and were recently photographed hanging out by their lonesome in France, England, Switzerland and Greece this past week. So what’s really going on with these two? While you might not get an honest answer anytime soon, Tyga is responding to people attacking his character over the alleged relationship.
According to E!, a person following him on Instagram called him out, but also brought his son, King, into the conversation:
“Nasty a** pedophile..your career and family is worth losing over this Kardashian baby thot @kyliejenner…I hope @blacchyna takes you away from your son…you should be locked up.”
His response was equally harsh:
“why u sound so hateful. U don’t know s**t bout my life but the fake s**t u read online. Worry about your sad boring life. U wish u can have a baby by a ni**a like me and live this lifestyle…let me guess no one wants u or ever attempted to spoil u and give u the world like I do for mines. Your ugly not just physically but in your soul. Never speak on my son.”
I’m wondering what Blac Chyna is thinking about all of this. While Tyga and Jenner could very well only be friends, it’s odd that she’s doing all this traveling with him around Europe. And considering that Blac Chyna was (or still is) close to Kim, ‘me thinks’ we’re entering messy territory. What do you think?
Tyga has taken to the streets of Twitter to express his unhappiness with Young Money. The rapper dissed his label for failing to release his album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
Gold album been done. my label holding me hostage so i can’t release nothing. might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.

Of course this prompted a tweet from Mack Maine inwhich Tyga replied.
@mackmaine its about growth not maintaining

The incident led Nicki Minaj to unfollow the rapper and undoubtably cause tension between the musicians. In all honesty, we completely forgot Tyga was even signed to Young Money. He has his own record label, Last Kings and has been on a number of singles this summer.
The 24-year-old rapper, yes, he’s only 24, has been in the headlines for his new relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner. While the rapper denies their relationship, the two are ALWAYS on a date somewhere.
Just a couple of months ago, we raised our eyebrows as we watched rapper Tyga offer Kylie Jenner a birthday shot…on her 17th birthday.
Then shortly after, he broke up with his fiancé and mother of his child, Black Chyna. After that, the rumors that the two were carrying on some type of romantic relationship really started to swirl.
Tyga, who’s 25, took to Twitter to deny them, saying he hates blogs and has been friends with the Kardashian family for years.
And you might think that rumors of him dating an underaged girl might cause him to chill on the time they spend together, particularly when it’s just the two of them, out in public where paparazzi can snap them.
But that would just be too smart.
On Monday, Tyga and Kylie were seen on what certainly looks like a date. The two went to Kabuki restaurant in Hollywood…because you know they needed their privacy.
Sources close to Tyga told TMZ that the two are dating but it doesn’t mean that they are physical. We certainly hope not since that would be quite illegal.
Another source told TMZ that if they insinuate that the nature of his relationship with Jenner is sexual, he’ll deny it. But privately, he acknowledges that he is dating her.
If you ask me, there’s no doubt in my mind that these two are dating. Who knows whether they’re having sex or not but regardless, it’s sketchy. It’s a well documented fact that Kim Kardashian and Black Chyna were good friends. And the fact that Blac Chyna’s baby daddy is down dating Kim Kardashian’s younger sister is just too gross…and illegal.
But this is all [very plausible] speculation.
What do you think? Are these two dating?
Last month, it was reported that Tyga and his fiancèe, Blac Chyna, called of their engagement. With the exception of an emotional Twitter rant posted by Blac Chyna, neither party have formally addressed the rumors. Interestingly, although he has remained mum regarding rumors that he and Chyna have parted ways, the YMCMB rapper found it necessary to shoot down rumors that he’s dating Kylie Jenner.

DONT BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.
— T-Raww (@Tyga) September 8, 2014
As you may recall, dating rumors have been surrounding Tyga and Kylie since the Blac Chyna breakup rumors began circulating last month.
We told you earlier this month that rapper Tyga (of Young Money) and Blac Chyna (formerly a dancer at King of Diamonds) split after linking up back in 2011. We also told you last week that Blac Chyna took to Twitter to let it be known that she was loyal to the wrong person (a “f**k ni**a” as she put it), and that she never stepped out on the rapper during their relationship.
So things between the former couple aren’t so copacetic at this point, and according to TMZ, they’re only getting worse. It’s being reported that Chyna and Tyga are at odds because she wants the rapper to keep other women that he brings around for ‘fun’ away from their 1-year-old son King Cairo.
Tyga has reportedly started throwing pool parties with all kinds of women present as their son is inside the rapper’s home. While they both allegedly told one another that they wouldn’t bring their son around people they’re not serious about, word is, Tyga’s already reneged on that.
However, sources close to Tyga are reportedly claiming that Chyna has already started spending time with new men too. Whatever is happening, things have become so complicated between the former couple that they’re threatening to take their issues with one another to court for custody of King Cairo.
Let’s hope things don’t get ugly between these two…
Last week, we reported on rumors that Blac Chyna and Tyga called off their engagement.
According to a few blabber mouthed insiders, Tyga is the one who broke things off and Chyna is still very much in denial about the relationship being over. The pair have yet to directly address the status of their relationship (or lack thereof), but Chyna’s recent Twitter rant definitely seems to indicate that there is trouble in paradise.
“Be loyal to a f–k n—a…Never again!” the former exotic dancer tweeted.
“I never cheated!” she added.
It’s quite challenging to piece together what went wrong based off of these vague tweets, but it’s probably safe to assume that this wasn’t an amicable split.
As previously reported, Tyga and Chyna have been an item since 2011 and have been engaged since 2012. They are the parents of one son, King Cairo Stevenson. I suppose only time will tell what’s really going on here.
The last time we were speaking about Tyga and Blac Chyna, as a couple, we were telling you about the pair welcoming their son King Cairo Stevenson into the world.
But that was way back in 2012. And though the couple, who’ve been together since 2011, were engaged in December of 2012, things seem to have shifted.
According to TMZ, a source claims that they’ve called off their wedding. And though the reason is unknown at this point, Tyga is believed to be the one who called it off.
The source told TMZ that Blac Chyna is in denial about their relationship ending and refuses to acknowledge it.
Apparently, Tyga hosted two pool parties at the home they once shared, recently, (including the one where he was instructing an underaged Kylie Jenner to take a shot) and Blac Chyna was not invited to either one of them…Which is quite interesting, if it is indeed true because it’s Blac Chyna who’s friends with the Kardashian family.
And while Blac Chyna hasn’t issued a statement or anything, there is an image of her pumping gas on her Instagram that she captioned “Somebody got [to] do it.” And the two haven’t been seen together on Blac Chyna’s Instagram since Kim and Kanye’s wedding back in May. It would be a trip if he stayed with her just long enough to get that invite…
That could be pretty telling. Who knows?
I’m sure one or both of them will speak on it sooner or later. If your relationship lives in the public, it must die there as well.
The Kardashians Are On The Hunt Again: Kylie And Kendall Jenner Party It Up With Tyga, Trey And Breezy
Kylie and Kendall Jenner got pretty cozy with the some of the most desired men in hip- hop and R&B last night.
Chris Brown, Tyga and Trey Songz attended a house party last night and were joined by the ladies and a gang of pics of all the fun turned up on Instagram.
I’m still not exactly sure what these young ladies do besides party and “model”, but then again I’m still not completely clear on their sisters’ claim to fame either.
Looks like the young celebs had a ton of fun, but for Breezy’s sake not too much fun. Check out the pics:
