  • Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson (November 19, 1989), known by his stage name Tyga (an acronym for Thank You God Always) was born in the Los Angeles, California area.
  • Tyga is of Vietnamese and Jamaican descent.
  • He started rapping when Travie McCoy found him in a trainer store and Tyga offered his mixtape.
  • Tyga performed at Harvard University's Yardfest in the spring of 2013, despite opposition from critics who've signed a petition seeking to keep him away over what they call his "violently misogynistic lyrics."
  • The day his son, King Cairo Stevenson was born Tyga purchased a $6.5 million mansion in Calabasas, California for his new family.
  • In late 2012, Tyga was sued by two video vixens that appeared in the video for "Make It Nasty" for 10 million dollars each, due to Tyga allegedly showing their nipples without their consent. They were assured that they would be edited out, and the unedited version of the video would not be released, however Tyga released a fully unedited version of the video.
  • On September 4, 2013, it was reported Tyga had been sued by Beverly Hills-based jeweler Jason, for allegedly not paying for roughly $91,000 worth of jewelry. Jason claims that Tyga agreed to pay $28,275 for the jeweler's diamond pantheon watch in August 2012, and that he borrowed a $63,000 diamond Cuban link chain in December 2012 and never returned the item. So he sued Tyga for the cost of both pieces, plus late fees, which totaled up to $185,306.50 in damages, double the original total cost.
