Tyga and Bow Wow

Tyga paid a visit to the “106 & Park” studio on Tuesday to premiere his video for “Dope” featuring Rick Ross. In addition to announcing a release date for his album Hotel California, he caught up with his YMCMB labelmate Bow Wow and showed off his T-Raww sneaker collection.

They discussed his collaboration with Rozay (“I wanted to send him the right stuff, something that he could swag out on”) and fatherhood.

“It definitely matured me a lot and made me appreciate life a little bit more,” said the 23-year-old rapper, who welcomed his son King Cairo in October.

He’s not worried about the extra responsibility that comes with being a dad. “It’s not really a challenge. It’s actually fun ’cause I’m a young parent. At the same time, I’m still enjoying my life.”

Tyga has posted photos of his son online and the three-month-old even has his own Twitter account. “Some people try to hide as much as they can about their personal life, but I just wanted to share it with the world. It’s a blessing.”

On March 26, Tyga will release his album Hotel California. “It’s a good album. People gonna love it,” he told “106” viewers.
