Earlier this week, Tyga shared a picture on Twitter, where he lovingly embraced Tupac, posting a side-by-side picture of both of them wearing matching Duke University jerseys with the caption “Dad.”

As you would expect, Twitter laid into his mentions, saying (not in so many words) that Tyga isn’t touching Tupac in any shape or form that he would have the “right” to say that his own lyrical talent was birthed from Pac‘s legacy. Going off the matching Duke jerseys, even “Twinsies!” would have been a better caption for the pic, but the internet is so ruthless we can’t really be sure.

After Twitter set Tyga‘s mentions ablaze, he decided to share photos of letters from his real father who’s been incarcerated for Tyga‘s whole life, and is serving a life sentence. The notes from Tyga‘s father, currently in the 25th year of his sentence, are reflective. “This level three shit allows me to work on my case and clearly think,” one screenshot of his father’s letter read. Responding to the haters, Tyga later tweeted “Pac taught me a lot more than my own father. Inspired me, Motivated Me, Listened without ever being there.”


We understand the seriousness of sharing his father’s letters with his fans, but it just seems like Tyga tried to garner sympathy for himself after the Tupac debacle.

Ever since his infamous relationship with began with 18-year-old Kylie Jenner, the 25-year-old California rapper has been met with slander in everything he tries to do; some have even gone so far to call him a “pervert,” a la Nicki Minaj. Thanks to Twitter user MattHasTheMusic, we got a more appropriate meme out of all this…
