Before Kylie Jenner started dating and had a child with rapper Travis Scott, she had a relationship with Tyga, a California rapper best known for making strip club hits like 2012's "Rack City." Their tryst, which reportedly began while Kylie was still a minor, played out in the public and had an impact on his latest full-length release Kyoto.
"I probably wouldn't have made this album [without going through that relationship]," he told Everyday Struggle on Wednesday. He smiled and shook his head no when asked if the songs are about her, but the relationship was an inspiration to try different sounds from what people expect from him.
He did make a point to say that everything is cool with Kylie, though.
"It was a relationship, it was in front of the world and that was it," he said. "She has her new life, i have my new life and that's it. There's no bad blood, no problems."
...And do they still talk?
"We communicate here and there," Tyga confirmed.
"You know, people love the drama," said Everyday Struggle panelist DJ Akademiks.
"People love the drama," Tyga agreed.
He wasn't super forthcoming about the past relationship beyond that, calling Akademiks a "troll" and asking how old he was after he kept asking more questions about Kylie. Tyga thinks Travis Scott's music is "cool" and just smiled when Akademiks suggested they should work together.
