Kylie Jenner's ex-boyfriend, Tyga, had some very... interesting things to say about her in a recent interview. According to Cosmopolitan, Tyga tried taking credit for Kylie Jenner's success. If you're already side-eyeing that notion, you're not alone. In response to his comments, some fans on Twitter can't help but take the rapper to task for his bold claim.

On Aug. 30, Tyga went on Nicki Minaj's Queen Radio show (which is interesting enough, considering Minaj's prior drama with Jenner), where the conversation turned to his ex-girlfriend. "She always had a platform and she was always destined to be what she was going to be regardless, but, when I stepped in, there was a lot of codes being taught," he said about Jenner, according to Cosmo. "It was like, you could do this, you should start this, you should start doing your hair like this." (Bustle reached out to Jenner's rep for comment on Tyga's statements, but did not receive an immediate response.)

That wasn't all he said, though. The publication noted that he went on to claim that he influenced the holy grail of KarJenner projects: Jenner's lip kits. "I don't need to go online and tell people I did this and I'm the one helping her coming up with these colors and names on her... lip line. It was a lot of stuff," Tyga said, per Cosmopolitan. According to Rap-Up, Tyga also said during the radio show, "You need black people to f*ck with you 'cause you need culture. I had a lot to do with that."

These are some pretty bold statements. And of course, considering the nature of such claims, there were many on Twitter who had thoughts about what he said. However, there were also those who found some kernels of truth in his words.

Too Funny

This Twitter user thought that Tyga's claims were too funny, funny enough to provide them with a "good laugh before bed."

"Kylie's Ex"

Another user side-eyed Tyga's (or "Kylie's ex's") comments, since they mentioned that he isn't as "relevant" now like his ex is.


This GIF probably says it all about how many were feeling after hearing the rapper's interesting comments about putting Jenner on the map.

It's Silly

One user said that people don't even talk about Tyga unless it's in relation to Jenner, making his comments sound all the more silly.

Don't Try It

Like this user said, the lip kit mogul did have "clout" before her ex came on the scene. So, can he really say that he made Jenner?


The Jenner last name "speaks for itself" in this person's mind. In other words, the Life of Kylie star didn't need to date Tyga to boost her image.

There's Some Truth

Although, there were some people that vibed with the "Rack City" rapper's comments, like this user who said that no one would know Jenner if not for Tyga. But, c'mon, is that really true?

Everyone's Fooling Themselves

Apparently, there were some who didn't know who Jenner was before dating Tyga. It's safe to say that they probably weren't Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans, right?

Spilling Tea

More than one user pointed out that there was some truth behind Tyga's implication that Jenner had culturally appropriated in the past. There have been multiple cases over the years of the reality star being accused of appropriating other cultures, whether in her personal style or her fashion line. Considering this, it wasn't surprising that some agreed with his sentiment.

Seeing as though Tyga's claims about Jenner were about as bold as one can get, it will be interesting to see if she does respond to his comments. If she doesn't, she can at least rest assured that there are a ton of Twitter users who have her back.
