According to various reports, Tyga is a rapper.
We have yet to confirm this rumor, considering we've only seen the guy hang around with Kylie Jenner on a frequent basis.
But we'll apparently see for sure about this whole Tyga-as-a-rapper thing in the near future because he just signed a pretty huge deal.
Kanye West announced on Wednesday that he's signed his sister-in-law boyfriend, Tyga to his G.O.O.D. record label.
The artist revealed the news at a pop-up show at New York City's Highline Ballroom last night, following his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show, which Tyga attended with Kylie.
Here is a photo of the couple at the event:
Naturally, most people out there assume Kanye basically struck this deal with Tyga as a favor to Kim Kardashian and her family.
Does he actually think highly of Tyga as a musician?!?
Yes, according to TMZ insiders.
Sources close to the rappers tell the celebrity gossip website that Kanye and Tyga have actually worked together on music for years,; signing Tyga was purely a business decision for West.
Which does make sense if you know Kanye West at all.
We don't. We've never met him.
But he takes his business seriously and we can't imagine he'd be influenced by Kim or anyone else when it comes to his label.
They likely know this, as well. We can't imagine they'd dare to stick their nose in Kanye's business.
Moreover, Tyga and Kanye have collaborated for years.
Kim actually met Blac Chyna because she was dating Tyga long before Kylie was ever in the romantic picture; and Kim, of course, was dating Kanye.
So the business deal may be legitimate, but that doesn't mean Twitter users didn't have a field day with the news.
Here's a sampling of some of their best reactions:
Then, of course, the Michael Jordan Crying Face was invoked:
But it wasn't all bad press for Tyga and Kanye.
At leas one person out there was happy for the former.
How nice, right?
What do you think of Tyga signing with Kanye? Did you even know he was a rapper?
You learn something new every day, huh?!?
