When it comes to Tyga, the only thing most people care about at the moment is his relationship with Kylie Jenner. But he's only interested in talking about music.
In an interview with NYLON Guys, the rapper dodged questions about Kylie Jenner but shared his thoughts on fame, music, and money.
My focus is making music and being happy with the people I surround myself with. The frustrating part of being an artist is that I can do a whole interview, and all most people are going to see is the headlines. As artists, we should be able to write our own headlines.
I don't really want to do music for a job 'cause it's not fun when you do it for a job. It's fun when you just do it when you feel like it," says Tyga. "I just want to be able to build a studio in my home, and whenever I feel like making music, I just make it and put it out.
And fame comes along when you're doing something you love.
Fame is a thing that happens when you do something you love—nobody wants to be famous for the wrong reasons. It's not my goal, but if being more famous means I can get more music out, that's cool.
A lot of these songs that I've been working on for The Gold Album aren't too commercial. They're not too dark, but I still wanted to make it dark because headphone music always lasts longer than straight party music.
