Rapper Tyga has graced many big stages in recent years, opening concerts on arena tours headed up by huge stars like Chris Brown and Lil Wayne. He has also emerged as a headliner in his own right, however, with fans grabbing tickets to see him up-close-and-personal on the club circuit as he supported his 2013 album, Hotel California. Tyga -- short for Thank You God Always -- is the stage name of Southern California native Michael Stevenson, whose best-known single is "Rack City." His first high-profile appearance was on a remix of the Fall Out Boy song "Arms Race" that also featured his cousin Travie McCoy. That led to a live appearance performing the song on the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. Tyga broke out with his first single, 2008's "Coconut" (also featuring McCoy), which appears on his first studio album, No Introduction. He followed it up with 2012's Careless World album, which featured appearances by heavyweights like Drake and Snoop Dogg and reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart.
