Compton, California-based rapper Tyga is one of Lil Wayne and Birdman's crew, illustrious Young Money Cash Money (YMCMB), who made a name for himself on the mixtape circuit as a rapper capable of creating both pop and straight-ahead gangster rap. With hits like "Rack City," "Coconut Juice," and notable features on songs like Chris Brown's "Deuces," Tyga has proved that he is a young rapper with appeal to both hip-hop heads and American pop youth. Backed by the Young Money crew, it's unlikely Tyga will fall far from his current pedestal, as the label seems only to prove more and more successful with artists like Nicki Minaj and Drake at the forefront of the crew.
