Tyga Defends His Kyoto Explicit Artwork Backlash

Tyga says his new album artwork is lit despite getting some backlash on social media.

So King Gold Chains posted the artwork for his new single on Instagram yesterday and it sent off a firestorm among some fans who think that it’s too explicit. Paparazzi caught up with him and his crew today in the streets where he said the artwork is lit. “It’s art man, it’s art,” he added. Some fans don’t see it as just art but more like something that should have been kept in the archive.

“I been wanting to make this album for a while now but didn’t have the confidence and the story to express my true emotions,” Tyga wrote on Instagram. “I thank all the love and support you have given me over the years. Thru my ups and downs,At My highest and my lowest points.Thru my brightest and darkest hours.This album is me opening my heart to you and I hope you enjoy it and love it as much as I do. THANK YOU GOD ALWAYS. Thank You Hajime Sorayama for allowing me to share this experience with the world thru your creative art & my vision.”

Some fans sees the artwork as being disrespectful to the Japanese flag, but Tyga says its not a diss and in fact the art was created by a famous Japanese artist.

Here are some of the reactions from fans.

“I wanna be one day as high as Tyga when he created that Album cover and thought it was a good idea,” the fan wrote, while another added, “This is the cover of Tyga’s new album.Its clearly disrespectful to the Japanese flag..whats wrong with Americans these days? First Logan Paul and now Tyga.”

Some fans decided to inject a little comedy into the mix like this comment from Chris. “In case you couldn’t tell Tyga loves Japanese culture, he named his album Kyoto after Japans old capital. Made his cover a lady tiger in kinbaku bondage, about to get her tiger cheeks pounded ontop the Rising Sun. Give it a few months he’ll be practicing Kendo with Lupe.”

Alt-J – House Of The Rising Sun (Relaxer Album)

[Verse 1]
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor soul
And, Lord, my father’s one

[Verse 2]
My mother, she’s a tailor
She sews those new blue jeans
To keep my gambling father drunk
Deep down in New Orleans

[Chorus 1]
It’s a happy, happy, happy, happy, fun day, day

[Verse 3]
Like a bird flying over forest fire
My father feels the heat beneath his wings
And in debt he leaves for another town
Where he gambles and, drunk, he still drinks

[Verse 4]
My mother hides from pleasure
And thinks of Father on her knees
Lifted in the arms of God
Away from New Orleans

[Chorus 2]
Happy, happy, happy, happy, fun day, day
Happy, happy, happy, happy, fun day, day
