Did Kanye Sign Tyga As A Favor To The Krew?
Really, you guys - he's genuinely a fan of his music.
Kanye signed Tyga to his label G.O.O.D. Music earlier this week, and the internet basically exploded, wasting no time in throwing out theories about the real reason Kanye decided to take Tyga under his wing.
The most popular stories that explain the collab: 1. Kris asked Kanye to sign Tyga so that he can make his own money and stay out of Kylie's wallet, and 2. Kylie came to Kanye on her own and asked him to help out her (perpetually struggling) boo.
Well, sources close to Kanye are saying that it isn't a favor at all; he doesn't take on any project he doesn't truly believe in, and he's legitimately a fan of Tyga's music. According to TMZ's sources, Kanye and Tyga are good friends, and have been since way before Kylie was in the picture. In fact, Kanye and Tyga were hanging out when he was still with Blac Chyna, and that's supposedly how Chyna and Kim Kardashian ended up becoming friends in the first place.
The sources went on to report that Kanye and Tyga have been in the studio together a lot lately, and that Kylie's boyfriend will be featured on the G.O.O.D. Music album, Cruel Winter, which is set to be released some time next year. And as far as his financial troubles go? Allegedly, the Kardashians have offered the services of their financial advisers, but Tyga has refused, saying he wants to fix his problems on his own.
Still...Kylie just bought him a Bentley, and now Kanye is about to take his career to the next level? No shade, but falling in with the Kardashian Klan is probably the best thing that ever happened to Tyga.
