In a new interview with VIBE may offer some clues. Appearing on the cover of the publications first digital-only issue, Tyga gives a more in-depth look at his struggle inside Young Money.
The interview begins addressing the topic when Tyga’s asked if Young Money is part of the creative process on The Gold Album, to which he responds:
“Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.”
He adds, “I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” and then elaborates:
“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. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.”
