SPONSORED VIDEO: Tyga and Mike Posner for Reebok Classics
It’s harder than it looks. Take it from the guys who are on their way. They come from different places. Their stories definitely aren’t the same. But they share the hunger, drive and motivation that it takes to one day make it big and to make it Classic.
Tyga and Mike Posner are proof that the game’s not all glamour. It’s hard work. Putting in the hours in the studio, writing rhymes, mixing, remixing. And from the looks of it, these guys aren’t anywhere close to being done. We follow Tyga and Mike as they tell what it takes to rise above the nay-sayers and lock their spot as two of music’s rising superstars.
Armed with little more than a dream and natural talent for the flow, the young Tyga (an acronym for Thank You God Always) began the grind in one of the hardest games out there. Tyga talks about keeping up the non-stop hustle that took from the streets of Compton and caught the attention of some of the most influential figures in hip-hop. Now following the release of his second studio album Careless World: Rise of the Last King and with thirteen mixtapes under his belt, the 22-year-old Tyga shows he’s got the makings of a true hip-hop Classic.
