迈克尔·雷·阮-史蒂文森(Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson),于1989年11月19日出生于加州的Gardena,是越南跟牙买加混血儿。因艺名"Tyga"被人熟知(Tyga在一次采访中说,其意思为“Thank You God Always - Tyga"),是Lil Wayne签约的说唱歌手,Young Money唱片公司首推艺人。   2008年6月10日,他的个人首张专辑《No Introduction》与大家见面。第一次见到Tyga是在2007年MTV音乐盛典,Fall out Boy与Lil Wayne的演出中,现在就签约于Lil Wayne的Young Money唱片公司,他们的目标就是把Tyga打造成08年最火热的新人。   Micheal Ray Stevenson was born in Compton, California, on November 19, 1989, and raised there until he "was about 11, 12," before moving to adjacent Gardena. He is of Vietnamese and Jamaican descent. His mother was born in Vietnam and has the maiden name Nguyen. He grew up listening to Fabolous, Lil Wayne, Cam'ron and Eminem among many others.   On December 3, 2012, debate arose concerning Tyga's upbringing. Tyga claimed to have been brought up in the low socioeconomic area of Compton, but in leaked footage from the unaired television show Bustas, he claimed he grew up in a "well-to-do" home in the Valley, where his parents drove a Range Rover. He also claimed that he attained his nickname from his mother calling him Tiger Woods. There has been speculation that his claims on the show were satirical and not to be taken seriously. Tyga responded to the video's leak on Twitter (original writing): "When u 14 an ambitious u don't give a fuk about anything. Scripted tv isn't that what we all live for.Hahahaha."   2007–10: No Introduction and mixtapes   Stevenson's career began with him releasing a multitude of demo tapes and mixtapes. His 2007 debut mixtape, Young On Probation, garnered the attention of his debated cousin, Travie McCoy. Seeing talent in the young artist, McCoy offered him a record deal with the independent label DCD2 Records (known then as Decaydence Records). Stevenson also signed with G.E.D. (Getting Educated Daily) Inc. around the time, the same imprint that helped launch the career of fellow West Coast rapper Schoolboy Q, with whom he's worked with early in his career. Tyga also has a G.E.D. Inc tattoo above his right eyebrow.   No Introduction, released on Decaydance Records on June 10, 2008, was Tyga's first independent album. The album was supported by the single "Coconut Juice", featuring McCoy. One of the songs from this album, "Diamond Life", was used in the video games Need for Speed: Undercover and Madden NFL 2009, as well as in the 2009 movie Fighting.   In late 2008, Tyga signed an additional record deal with Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, which was a subsidiary of Cash Money Records at the time. Tyga met Wayne at the 2008 VMA's, performing the remix of Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race". He was first featured on the song "Bedrock" by Young Money soon after signing to the label. He soon released the mixtape Fan of a Fan with Chris Brown and producers DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar. It features other artists such as Bow Wow, Lil Wayne, and Kevin McCall featured in several tracks. Four tracks ("Holla at Me", "G Shit", "No Bullshit" and "Deuces") are also accompanied by music videos. The track "Deuces" was released as the lead single of the mixtape and reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs by August 26, 2010.

The album was released on February 21, 2012 on Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records, and Universal Republic Records. Careless World: Rise of the Last King is a move to the rapping style he featured in the collaboration album We Are Young Money rather than the poppy dance element exemplified on his previous effort, No Introduction. Tyga stated that the album shows he has grown up but still relates to the kids. In preparation for the album, Tyga released the mixtape #BitchImTheShit in December 2011.
