After Lil Wayne publicly called out Cash Money Records, Tyga opened up a bit about his own issues with the label this weekend.
Before assisting Chris Brown at Power 106’s Cali Christmas concert in Los Angeles on Friday (Dec. 5), the rapper explained that his issues stem from the label’s failure to release his music.
“[The Gold Album] is done, so like I’m going to put it out independently, I’m just getting out of my deal right now,” Tyga told Power 106. “I feel like, as an artist, what we do creatively should never be imprisoned, and at the end of the day, we do it to bring it to the fans. It’s not a selfish thing, it’s just not fair to the fans. You’ve got millions of people who want your music and they don’t understand the behind the scenes politics.”
Tyga also said he’s funding everything himself, from the videos to the album’s release. “I’m dropping regardless. I’m paying for my own videos and everything, so I ain’t waiting on nobody,” he said. “Everything come to the light so you got to treat people the way you want to be treated at the end of the day.”
Tyga and Chris Brown are about to embark on their forthcoming “Between The Sheets” tour.
