The signing follows an incredible couple of years for Tyga, whose single “Taste” was certified 6x platinum and generated over 1 billion streams. In June, he released his gold-certified album Legendary independently via his own Last Kings Records / Empire Distribution.
Prior to going independent, Tyga was signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment via Cash Money Records from 2008-2014. He filed a $10 million lawsuit against the label in 2018 over unpaid royalties before dropping the suit this year.
