Vibe: Are you trying to break out on your own?
Tyga: Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.

Vibe: Why?
Tyga: I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.

Looks like Tyga is hoping to get dropped from Young Money.

“I always thought that by the time I put out a third album, I would want to come back to natural hair and natural makeup,” she told me. “I thought, I will shock the world again and just be more toned down. I thought that would be more shocking than to keep on doing exactly what they had already seen.”

It looks like Mason Betha isn’t having it when it comes to criticism regarding his jump back into rapping. The former Bad Boy bumped into The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God at the Revolt Music Conference in Miami and allegedly pushed him.

I look forward to Mase’s next Breakfast Club Interview.

50 Cent Speaks On His Relationship With Ciara And Admiration For Diddy & Jay Z

Written by Nigel D. / 09.26.14

Vibe: Given your success financially beyond rap, who would you say is your business mentor?

50 Cent: I don’t have a business mentor but I do admire moves from guys at different points. Even though I give him shit at points, Puff is talented. Jay too. Staying power in a culture that shifts and moves as fast as hip hop does is hard. There’s a significance in being able to stay in it without actually making hit music. It’s amazing that Puff is still in it because he doesn’t make it. If I told you what to say and you said it, you and me would be eligible to be Puff. Everything else, he’s operating correctly so it keeps him around.

Vibe: There’s speculation on the Internet that you and Ciara are back together.

50 Cent: Ciara is a really good friend of mine and she came to show me support when I lost my grandmother because she had her relationship with my grandmother. People don’t know but we have been friends for about four years so that’s why [people] are surprised to come and see her support. It’s unfortunate that somebody would take a picture [of her at my grandmother's funeral]. You got people out there that are supposed to just follow and not have any significance at all. At the end, they look for any opportunity to take a photograph to get their followers up. Some things are supposed to be entertainment and some things are supposed to be part of your life. When your personal life become business, it gets interesting.
