Tyga Height, Weight, Age & Girlfriend

Based in Compton, California, Tyga made his official debut in 2012 not long after signing with Lil Wayne’s music imprint, Young Money Entertainment. Even prior to that however, he had dropped a number of mixtapes including, Black Thoughts, Fan of a Fan, Well Done, Black Thoughts 2, and Well Done 2, all of which led his popularity to soar. Following several self-releases, he came out with his major label debut, Careless World: Rise of the Last King in 2012. A chart topper, it spawned many hit tracks including the 4x platinum Rack City and the 2x platinum, Faded (Feat. Lil Wayne). His most successful album to date, it has since gone platinum seven times in the US, with over 7.4 million sales.

The subsequent followup, Hotel California was released in the spring of 2013. Generally well received, the project spawned three charting singles, Dope (Feat. Rick Ross), For the Road (Feat. Chris Brown), and Show You (Feat. Future). Outside of the US, where it had charted at number 7 on the Billboard 200, the album also enjoyed success in the UK, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, and France. To promote the record, Tyga also embarked on a worldwide tour, which ran for two months. His second multi-platinum album, more than 5.6 million copies have moved in the US as of 2015.

From there, Tyga released his third album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty in 2015. His first project under his Last Kings Records, it included a few guest appearances from Boosie Badazz, Lil Wayne, and A.E; among the track list were, Down for a Min, Pure Luxury, 4 My Dawgs, Hollywood Niggaz, Spitfire, Bloodline, and Shaka Zulu. While the album didn’t chart on the Billboard 200, it did manage to peak at number 35 on the US Independent Albums chart and at number 27 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Since then, he has released a fourth album titled, Bitch I’m the Shit 2. Made available in July 2017, it produced the track, Feel Me (Feat. Kanye West), which went on to receive  Platinum accreditation from the RIAA.

In addition to what’s been mentioned above, he’s also done a number of collaborations over the years- for instance, Wait for a Minute with Jutin Bieber, Throw it Up with DJ Mustard, Ayo with Chris Brown, Bitches N Marijuana with Chris Brown, and Roger That with Young Money. Speaking of which, Tyga has also worked with Birdman, Gilbert Forte, Travis Porter, Snoop Dogg, Wacka Flocka Flame, and Neon Hitch, among others. In fact, he even supported Chris Brown and Trey Songz on their 2015 Between the Sheets Tour which ran from January to March 2015!
