*Tyga was a guest on Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio yesterday and made headlines for claiming that he had “a lot to do” with the success of his ex-girlfriend Kylie Jenner.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” who now calls Travis Scott her baby daddy, was the youngest person to make Forbes’ annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women earlier this year after her make-up line, Kylie Cosmetics, was revealed to be worth nearly $800 million.
Tyga insists that he had something to do with her amassing that fortune. He claims his three-year relationship with the star between 2014 and 2017 helped put her on the map.
“She always had a platform and she was always destined to be what she was going to be regardless, but, when I stepped in, there was a lot of codes being taught,” the 28-year-old explained on Minaj’s Apple Music Beats 1 show Queen Radio on Thursday. “It was like, ‘you could do this, you should start this, you should start doing your hair like this’.”
The “Taste” rapper went on to insist that he played an influential role in the creation of the make-up mogul’s signature Lip Kits and helped Kylie pick shades and names in the production process.
“I had a lot to do with all that, which I don’t need credit for,” he shared. “I don’t need to go online and tell people I did this and I’m the one helping her coming up with these colors and names on her lip line. It was a lot of stuff.”
During the chat, Tyga, who is now rumored to be back with Playboy model Carla Howe, also addressed the breakdown of his relationship with Kylie and denied rumors that he has beef with Travis.
“I’m not a bitter person… if we break up, we break up. We had a good time and kept moving, and we went our separate ways and we’re both doing good,” he smiled. “(Me and Travis) ain’t got no beef. It’s his time right now. You gotta let it ride. I ain’t got no beef with him.”
Asking if he missed Kylie, he replied: “Nah, I’m good. I’m good, love. Enjoy.”
