Remember when footage of Tyga on a never-aired game show called Bustas was the talk to the ‘Net, last week? Well, as it turns out he was only kidding when he said he grew up wealthy, with a Range Rover.
TMZ put the Young Money star on blast posting the clip of the new dad saying that he actually grew up in a nicer area of Southern California known as the Valley, and not Compton. After sidestepping the short-lived scandal, the site is now reporting that the 23-year-old is telling friends the entire story.
But Tyga's telling his friends that was all a lie -- when the rapper said he lived in a well-to-do area of the Valley, he was referring to a short period of time in his life, during which he just so happened to tape the game show segment.
T-Raww's insisting he's REALLY from Compton and his stint in the Valley was only temporary.
Nevertheless, we're told Tyga's unfazed by the clip, insisting he's come a long way since his goofy game show days ... and no embarrassing video is gonna stop him because "he still has plenty of money and will still have huge hits."
Earlier today, he tweeted a message to TMZ. "@TMZ stop with lies an shii I aint never spoke to y'all bout nothing. Do yall muthaf-ckas Eat breakfast first?!#HopoffrawwD-ck."
Just to make sure everybody got his point, T-Raww also posted a photo wearing a Compton shirt on Instagram—so you know its real.
