(AllHipHop News) California representative Tyga had a pretty rough 2015. In February, he was the target of lines from Drake’s “6PM In New York” track off If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

Then in June Tyga’s The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty only opened with around 2,200 copies in first week sales. The 26-year-old rapper was also constantly the butt of jokes and the recipient of online vitriol for his relationship with 18-year-old Kylie Jenner. Add in some legal and financial issues, and it was a torrent of negative press in ’15.
This year was not all bad for Tyga. The Young Money signee premiered his own reality show Kingin’ with Tyga on MTV2, and he had a role in the well received movie Dope. T-Raww is looking to have a much more productive 2016 with appearances in Barbershop 3 and Going Under.
Tyga plans to rebound musically as well. His Rawwest N*gga Alive mixtape is expected to arrive in January. According to the recording artist, the songs he is creating cannot be compared to anything on the market at the moment.
“Even though so many people are doing music, I still feel like what I do is not comparable,” Tyga told Yahoo. “It can’t be duplicated. When you start looking at all the other people, that’s you losing your faith in what you’re supposed to do.”
Despite the negative turn of events in his career, Tyga is still confident he is one of the potential greats of his era. Apparently, T-Raww does not want to be defined by his 2011 Top 10 hit “Rack City.” The Lil Wayne protegé believes his best days are still ahead of him.
“Everything that I’ve done to this point doesn’t even matter. When I hear ‘Rack City,’ it doesn’t even matter,” added Tyga. “I’m only doing this to sit with the gods. There’s no other way I see it for myself.”
