Michael Ray Stevenson did his debut as the rapper Tyga in 2008. The hit single ”Coconut Juice” was followed by his first independent album ”No Introduction”. He gained even more recognition from the following projects released under Lil Wayne’s record label Young Money – such as the 2012 album “Careless World: Rise of the Last King” that went straight to the top of the charts. In 2015 he founded his own record label Last Kings Records.
The Compton-based rapper is known for his unapologetic lyrics and an urban sound. Some of Tyga’s biggest hits from his 16 released albums and mixtapes are ”Ayo ft. Chris Brown”, ”Rack City” and last year’s summer hit ”Taste ft. Offset”. His latest release ”Girls Have Fun” has G-Eazy, also to perform at Blockfest, as featuring act. This will be Tyga’s first time performing at Blockfest.
