Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, who performs as Tyga, is an American rapper best known for being signed by Lil Wayne’s popular Young Money Entertainment management company.


Early Life

Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson was born in Compton, California, on November 19, 1989. Of mixed Vietnamese and Jamaican parentage, Stevenson was a shy child who was nonetheless influenced by Compton’s active rap music scene. Inspired by listening to Fabolous, Eminem, Cam’ron and other rappers, he entered rap contests with friends from school and often posted songs that he made up in online chat rooms.

He even made mixtapes of his songs that he shared with friends. Perhaps because his mother called him “Little Tiger Woods” as a child, Stevenson took on the stage name Tyga, an acronym he created for Thank You God Always.


Tyga has a son, King Cairo Stevenson, with a former stripper, Blac Chyna. King Cairo was born in October 2012.


After Stevenson ran into his cousin, Travis McCoy of the band Gym Class Heroes, at a popular Los Angeles sneaker store, the two discussed favorite performers and Tyga shared his dream of a music career. Tyga also shared some of his mixtapes with McCoy, who later offered Tyga a chance to perform with his group and join them on the road.

After Tyga traveled the world with Gym Class Heroes, McCoy signed him to the independent label Bat Squad Records. Tyga made important relationships within the music industry, even performing at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards with Fall Out Boy and popular rapper Lil Wayne, with whom he became fast friends. Tyga appeared on Lil Wayne’s multi-platinum-selling album Tha Carter III, and launched his own solo career with the single “Coconut Juice,” which became a popular summer novelty tune.
