Hip Hop has often been likened to a competitive sport, primarily because of its roots in battling.
However, Young Money’s Tyga doesn’t see it that way. “I don’t really don’t be paying attention to everybody else’s stuff,” said the rapper in an interview with Complex. “Like I said, if it doesn’t appeal to me, if it doesn’t appeal to my lifestyle, I don’t really care to look at it. It just doesn’t matter to me.”
Naturally, the conversation led to Young Money vs. G.O.O.D. Music, with Lil Wayne and Drake having their issues with the latter’s Pusha T. “That shit is stupid,” said Tyga bluntly. “That’s just what people want to see. It’s entertainment. They can say whatever they want to say because they want to see these things happen. It’s like boxing. People are egging on Mayweather and Pacquiao. ‘I don’t care how them niggas feel. I want to see them fight.'”
“That’s the same thing with music,” he continued. “That’s how the fans feel. Everybody wants to start beef with people. You could be sitting right next to the nigga, having a conversation, and if they feel like they want to pull something, they’ll say that you got beef with him.”
Tyga expressed a similar sentiment regarding the Chris Brown and Drake beef. “I think it’s wack. I don’t think it creates anything positive. Don’t worry about the little shit. Everybody’s rich. Why do you gotta worry about it? I can only speak as a fan and a friend. I can’t really say much about that.”
