“We did a children's hospital visit and we brought gifts out to the kids … gave away shoes, headphones, and it's just good. We could have just sent stuff but it’s good to be there,“ he gushed. “You get to see the smiles on their face and how happy they are … not even for the gifts but having someone visit them -- people that they look up to.”
As for the rumor that Kylie will be appearing on a song with him and Iggy Azalea? Tyga denies the report, blaming the chatter on a fake photo that went viral.
“Not true,” he confirms. “Photoshop, man ... crazy kids, you know, they’re bored.”
Tyga is currently trying to put the finishing touches on his highly-anticipated upcoming album, The Gold Album.
“I'm still working on it right now,” he says. “It's like you go through one phase where this is the sound you want to do and then two months later you want a whole other sound … I keep switching sounds up so once I stop being so creative and can actually put it out -- it could be next week, it could be in a month.”
The singer also clarified remarks he made about his label, Cash Money Records, and label-mate, Drake.
In an interview with Vibe last October he said, “I tend to distance myself from them [YMCMB] … I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” adding, “I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me.” That same month he tweeted, “Gold album been done. my label holding me hostage so i can't release nothing. might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.”
“We’re all signed to the same label … it was just situations within the label that I was trying to get out so I could clear my music but it had nothing to do with them as artists.”
The “40 Mil” rapper is also focusing his time on his creative work with L.A. Gear.
“I’m creative … I wanted to do something that related to home. Just that old school era, that retro era, that’s what’s coming back right now,” he explained. “For my generation it’s all about the retro colors, that whole creative vibe. And I wanted it to be like home, like L.A.”
