Tyga Calls Drake A 'Fake,' Admits He Doesn't Get Along Well With Nicki Minaj

American rapper Tyga has talked about his feelings about fellow Young Money artists Drake and Nicki Minaj, saying he doesn't "really get along" with both, according to Billboard.

"I don't get along with Drake. I don't get along with Nicki," he told Vibe during a recent interview. He also described Drake as a "fake."

Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, also bemoaned what he sees is merely a contrived friendship among artists signed to the record label owned by rapper Lil Wayne.

"I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force relationship because[ Lil] Wayne put us together," the 24-year-old rapper said. "At the end of the day, the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki," he continued.

Earlier this month, Tyga wrote on Twitter about his frustration with the record label, according to MTV Base.

"The music industry is a devil's playground. I'm a man of God," he wrote in one tweet.

He also quoted rapper Tupac: "Ain't no one man go stay in the same spot forever that's a sucka. I'm a hustler so I took what lil bit he gave me and doubled up."

"Gold album been done. My label holding me hostage so I can't release nothing. Might just leak it for my fans then let me make $ off it," he said, insinuating that he plans to become an independent artist.

He confirmed this during the interview with Vibe when he expounded on his tweets and said that Young Money is not involved in the "creative process" behind the new album and that he's "trying to go independent."

One of the reasons behind this decision, he revealed, was his relationship with Drake.

"I don't like Drake as a person. He's just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I'm saying? I think his music is good, but we're all different people. We were forced together," he said. "I've been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That's my real genuine friend."
