Michael Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, was born on November 19, 1989, in Compton, California. He is a popular American rapper and television personality who began his music career by releasing several mix-tapes. His mother is a Vietnamese while his father came from a Jamaican descent. While growing up, Tyga loved artists like Eminem, Lil Wayne, Fabulous and Cam’ron.
In 2007, on of his mix-tapes titled “Young On Probation,” became his debut song and Travie McCoy gave him an opportunity to sign a record deal with DCD2 Records.
Fast forward to 2008, the rapper was already making waves in the rap industry and soon, he signed an additional deal with Lil Wayne’s record label known as Young Money Entertainment. With this record, Tyga became one of the best rappers the industry had ever seen and he did not relent in producing amazing songs alone or as a group.
On October 5, 2011, Tyga met Blac Chyna for the first time at an after party in Miami. The duo kicked off a relationship after Chyna appeared in one of his music videos titled “Rack City.”
A year later, Tyga and Chyna became parents to a little boy called King Cairo Stevenson and the rapper moved his family to a $6.5 million mansion in Calabasas, California. However, two years after being together and getting engaged, the couple decided to go their separate ways.
Tyga soon found love with reality star and makeup mogul, Kylie Jenner, but fans ate them up on social media for their age difference. The age of consent in California is 18, but reports showed that Tyga and Jenner were already dating when she was only 16 years old.
After dating Jenner for a while, the couple decided to split up and Tyga has opted for a low-profile like since. He recently celebrated his birthday on a yacht with his BFF, Amber Rose and many others.
After this birthday celebration, the rapper decided to go on tour around the globe and the last place he performed was in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night. However, fans were given the chills when the rapper revealed a photo of himself wearing a surgical mask in a hospital.
The rapper did not give clear details about his health status, but he thanked the Saudi Arabian doctors for treating him with the best care. Furthermore, the rapper had reportedly revealed that he was feeling under the weather while he was performing in Mumbai, but this was put off till he got to Saudi Arabia.
Several fans took to the comment section of his post to wish his full recovery and show him love with comments and emojis.
No one knows if Tyga will be able to finish his tour and the gravity of his health condition, but we wish him the best no doubt.
