Today we launch our new photo series #AROUNDTOWN which takes us to some of the artist’s favorite spots in their respective hometowns. The first installment features Tyga who is currently busy prepping his new album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, due later this year and executive produced by Kanye West.

The Young Money representative invited us on a trip through the Melrose District and West Hollywood in Los Angeles. First stop was his own Last Kings flagship store that opened in February. It has been reported that the bill to decorate the interior of his store was around $120,000. Just a brief look inside the store justifies the amount of money spent as it features an “Egyptian-made tomb” recreating Michelangelo’s frescos from the Sistine Chapel on the ceiling. “Inspired by a love of Egyptian culture and the belief that we can all be Kings,” the store also features Egyptian imported items, including a digital checkout system, and exclusive new pieces from his clothing brand of course. Next on the list is the Guy Hepner Gallery just a few blocks away. A place for Tyga to “absorb creative energy,” the “Coachella of Art Galleries” hosts contemporary art dealers specialized in Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst as well as KAWS, Murakami and West Coast-based artists such as Retna, Brainwash and Alec Monopoly. Wrapping things up, we hit up a true “Los Angeles staple,” Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in Hollywood. According to T-RAWW, the service and food “makes you feel like you’re at your grandma’s house.” Click through the gallery above.
