After posting THAT pic. Tyga talks out about his Dad. Tupac and his real father.
Tyga has fired back at his critics after posting a picture of him alongside Tupac and captioning it 'Dad'.
The rapper received strong backlash on Twitter however he has refused to back down from his surprising statement.
"I’m inspired by [Tupac] as a student of the culture, especially my generation," he told TMZ.
“My real father’s been in jail all my life so I never really knew my real father. 'Pac is like a father figure to me.”
Pac taught me a lot more than my own father. Inspired me, Motivated Me, Listened without ever being there.— T-Raww (@Tyga) March 7, 2016
