Iam from PLNDR speaks with Tyga about snapbacks, Last Kings, jewelry, gambling, and swagger jackers. Read the Interview after the jump. Enjoy!
Ian: Were out here backstage chillin with the homie Tyga. Now Tyga, you dropped the Mixtape Track “Snapbacks Back.” Can you speak on the whole Snapback craze and where you see it going?
Tyga: Iv’e been doin’ it for a minute. You know, just to see [what] everybody doing is dope. It’s something for our generation. We got Twitter, You Tube, and I think it just fits in. It’s just for our generation – something that we do at our age.
Ian: Do feel kids nowadays are taking styles from different eras and incorporating them with today’s newest trends?
Tyga: Definitely, everything reinvents itself. From the kids that were doing all the crazy colors back in the days – it’s the same thing now, we’re just doing it our way.
Ian: Ok, so on the track “Real or Fake” you drop a line saying you have 1200 snapbacks. That was couple mixtapes ago, where is Tyga sitting at now?
Tyga: I got a lot, but I stopped buying them. People have just been giving them to me. Now, I only wear my Snapback. I stopped wearing all the team snapbacks and I just started wearing all Last King snapbacks now.
Ian: Thats what’s up, you wanna speak on your brand “Last King”?
Tyga: You can check the website out www.lastkingdesigns.com. We have products up there right now, but we’re about to revamp it with a whole bunch of new looks, new Snapbacks and everything.
Ian: What trends in fashion are you not feeling? Whats your take on other styles?
Tyga: You know, I feel like there are a lot of people that take my Swag. If your gonna take a ni@%as swag just do it right. At least compliment me before you do it, you feel me? You got me, I’m doing it on some fresh shit, thinking outside the box. Then you got people that copy it and make it look stupid. It makes me not want to do it anymore, so I gotta switch it up. If you gonna take someone’s swag do it the right way.
Ian: You’ve been killing it with all the gold pieces lately – on some King Tut shit, can you speak on your jewelry game?
Tyga: I’ve always been a fan of gold. Gold symbolizes power. When somebody sees it, it has a a meaning. It goes along with the Last King movement I got, I’m really into Egyptian culture. I just want all my fans, people my age, older or younger to really feel like kings and queens in whatever they’re doing. I want them to realize that we really have the power to change the game. Whether it be with music labels or anything you do in life. You really got the power to do what you want to do and set you own trends.
Ian: So I have to ask, The single “Rack City” is blowing the fuck up. For those that don’t know: a rack is a thousand dollars or more. What’s the best and worst thing you dropped a rack on?
Tyga: I got a gambling problem – I like to gamble a lot. But everything I buy is always something I need for the moment. But definitely the worst thing I spend my racks on is gambling.
