Opinions on Tyga vary across the board but I want to take the time to examine this lyric of his:
" I don't wanna be famous, I just wanna be rich..."- Tyga, 40 Mill
This lyric stood out to me because it reminded me of the question my business partner and I would ask a lot of the artist that we worked with. Do you want to be famous or do you want to be rich? While there are a few individuals who are both famous and rich, it is important that we talk about the difference. To be famous, is to be well known, well recognized. To be rich is to obtain large sums of money for your creative works. Some of the richest people, aren't necessarily known, they may be the owners and creators of a specific product. Whereas those who are famous may be living a luxurious live style that is being given to them via a loan. Their lifestyle is borrowed and any money made is taken to pay for that loaned lifestyle.
Tyga expressed in his interview to the Breakfast club how he began to research more about the money he was supposed to be making from his label. Then he also proceeded to talk about his other business ventures. Being concerned about the growth and longevity of your money is important if one is to continue to be rich.
So, do you want to be famous or be rich?
