In struggle rapper news Tyga recently teased at releasing a singing album. We hope it’s a prank of some sort.

The former Young Money rapper recently took to his Instagram and tried his best to sing Donell Jones’ “Where I Wanna Be” and Usher’s “Nice & Slow.” He missed hitting the original notes before going into a coughing fit. One of the clips finishes with an admission of “Sh*t, I can’t sing.”

Footage of the fail below.

Even though the R&B attempts were largely perceived as harmless fun, T-Raww tweeted that he was serious with his crooner efforts—”Y’all think I’m playing that singing album coming soon.”

On September 5 Tyga took another crack at it, this time with the help of auto-tune. To no one’s surprise, the pitch correction software didn’t help much and the struggle was still real.

Let’s hope this is all a masterful trolling strategy to keep himself visible. If not, then we are in trouble.
