Tyga raised a few folks eyebrows over the weekend when he posted a picture of Tupac Shakur on social media with a caption reading: “Dad.” Some thought the California rapper was being literal with the image, and quickly bashed him on Twitter.
Tupac and tyga should never be in the same sentence …….. Ever

When it comes to 26-year-old Tyga, Tupac, you are NOT the father!

Somebody said Bill Cosby is Tyga’s dad and not Tupac. 💀💀

Thankfully, Tyga cleared up the confusion in a later tweet, writing that Pac’s music played a part in helping raise him. “Pac taught me a lot more than my own father. Inspired me, motivated Me, listened without ever being there,” he wrote. Tyga then went on to share a letter written by his real father who is currently incarcerated.
