When Sean “Diddy” Combs decided to take his Last Train to Paris show on the road , he tapped one of Young Money’s brightest stars, Tyga, to come with him as an opening act.
And even though Lil Wayne’s I Am Still Music Tour is running concurrently with Diddy-Dirty Money’s Coming Home trek, Tyga insists there are no conflicts between the camps at all. In fact, the YM soldier said Wayne encourages his artists to branch out.
“Wayne told us: Don’t rely on him to make you hot, don’t rely on him for the hits. You have to really go out and grind for your own and build your own fanbase,” Tyga told Sway during MTV News’ “Rap Fix Live.” “That’s important. People respect that more, too, when you can build your own foundation and they can really get to you as an artist and not get to know you as a group.”
The Grammy-nominated L.A. rapper said he has learned a lot by watching the D-DM stage show and that Combs often comes to him for performance tips as well. “Every time he comes to me after the show and is like, ‘How was that? Was the show dope? Tell me what you think,’ ” Tyga said. ” And I tell him stuff like, ‘Maybe you should add that song right there to keep the energy’ or whatever. It’s a lot of respect out there.”
Diddy-Dirty Money’s 20-city tour kicked off last week in Minneapolis and will make stops in Toronto, Boston and NYC before concluding in St. Louis on May 15.
