Michael Ray Stevenson, better known as Tyga, got his start in 2007 when he appeared on Fall Out Boy’s “Arms Race,” along with his cousin and Gym Class Heroes frontman, Travis McCoy, Kanye West, Paul Wall, Skinhead Rob, Lupe Fiasco and Lil Wayne, according to a press release.

The next year, he debuted his first single, “Coconut Juice,” which featured Mr. McCoy. The song was on his first album, “No Introduction,” which earned a spot on the Billboard Hot 200 chart.

Tyga released his biggest hit to date, Rack City, in 2012. The song reached the No.7 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart. This year, Tyga released The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
