American rapper Tyga will headline urban music event the WOO Fest at Voice Space on December 7.
WOO Fest promises an explosive fusion of live hip-hop performances and fiery DJ sets from the hottest names in the game such as Pegboard Nerds, DeeJay RayRay, MYRNE, and special guests.
Tyga, aka Michael Ray Stevenson, hails from Compton, California, although his Vietnamese and Jamaican parents moved him to Gardena, California around the turn of the millennium. Inspired by listening to Fabolous, Eminem, Cam’ron and other rappers, he entered rap contests with friends from school and often posted songs that he made up in online chat rooms. His cousin, Travis McCoy, was a member of Gym Class Heroes and exposed him to a lot of music.
He has released several singles and albums, among them “Coconut Juice”, "Deuces," “Careless World: Rise of the Last King” and “Hotel California” featuring Wiz Khalifa, The Game, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne.
