In this episode of HYPEBEAST Radio, hosts Madrell Stinney and Ben Roazen sit down with Tyga to discuss the artist’s upbringing California, his love for jewelry and his myriad of creative projects. After all, Tyga has had a busy 2017: in between recording his upcoming project, Bitch I’m The Shit 2, Tyga let us know that the video for his Kanye West collaboration “Feel Me” is done and dusted before proclaiming it “the best music video of the year.” The Artist Also Known As King Goldchains opens up about how he got into buying bootleg jewelry at the age of 12 before he could afford a $20K USD chain from Ben Baller. As far as his own sense of style goes, T-Raw drops Pharrell, Lil Wayne and Jay Z as undeniable influences.

In addition to music, T also touches upon his new fashion line, Viet Raw, and how his own biracial upbringing inspired the collection’s aesthetic and overall direction. Tyga also speaks on how he was an early fan and mentor of Chief Keef and how he helped the Chicago drill artist move out to California.
