Unaired Game Show Footage Exposes Rapper Tyga?

Back in 2008, YMCMB rapper, Tyga, was a guest on a corny MTV game show that was fortunately never picked up. According to TMZ, the show titled, Bustas had wannabe-rappers compete against each other in games such as, Guess the Rapper By His Grill, and Is This a Real Rolex?  to see who can embody rap stereotypes the best.

Today, the unaired footage has made it’s way online, and now Tyga’s whole career is being called into question. Not only has Tyga been lying about being from the hard streets of Compton, CA, but he admits on camera that he had a privileged upbringing in the Valley suburbs.

In the video, the contestants are asked to freestyle and incorporate buzz words like amoeba into their raps. Tyga (who mispronounces the word) gets boo’d off the stage.

I dont even understand why this is has been made a big deal the past couple of days or if its even exposing the nigga. Whats in here that we dont know already? Plus there's worse exposures that rappers have survived.

I dont even care for the dude like that but I'm stunned that this is an "issue" on the boards and blogs I go to the past couple of days

Still not a big deal since a lot of rappers claim they from certain hoods but werent exactly

idt rappers nowadays can get away with that tbh. It always comes out. Plus they all look stupid lying either way.

Especially now rappers can get away with it lol
The hottest rapper of the past 2 years was a fucking cop lol
bee_xx3 7th-Dec-2012 08:37 pm (UTC)
...and it came out lmao. With the internet everything comes and spreads like 10x faster.

yeah it came out, but he's still immensely popular. so he pm got away with it. if the rap community had ostracized him, i'd agree w/ you.

I know. This happens a lot. A lot of rappers posture. It's only recently becoming somewhat lucrative for rappers to keep it real about their normal upbringings.

mte, forgetting something that happened three years ago and then remembering it again isn't ~*exposure*~...

It's hardly a new thing, just look at Rick Ross, Tupac, Slick Rick...it's OLD.
Even rappers that were 'hood' or w/e exaggerate and embellish, it's part of making music.
Not just in rap, look at Lana Del Rey and that fake ass baby prostitute/alcoholic story of hers.
I think the only time people should be called out is if they forget they are faking e.g. Drake or they deny the truth

Oooh did not know that.
Well I'll take your word for it but I'm still side-eyeing some of her 'background'.
