Tyga Defends Controversial Album Cover, Calls It “Art”


Tyga became embroiled in a bit of controversy after unveiling the explicit album artwork for his forthcoming album KYOTO. The artwork features a naked woman with tiger-printed skin lying in a provocative position, in front of a background that appears to look like the flag of Japan.

The rapper doesn’t seem to get all the hullabaloo, and spoke to TMZ over what he sees as “art,” “lit” art at that.

“It’s not a flag, it’s a rising sun,” T-Rawww says after being prompted about whether the artwork is disrespectful towards Japan. “The artist [Hajime Sorayama] is Japanese. So, he’s a very well-known Japanese designer so, that’s why I did it with him.”

The interviewer also says that people are calling the artwork “furry porn,” which the B**ch I’m The Sh*t 2 proclaims is false.

“I don’t even know what [furry porn] is,” he laughs. “I love it, it’s a art piece.”
