American rapper Tyga is set to bring his Careless World tour to O2 Academy Bristol this summer.
Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, better known by his stage name Tyga (an acronym for Thank You God Always), first received recognition with his debut single Coconut Juice.
The record featured his cousin Travie McCoy, the lead vocalist of the alternative hip-hop band Gym Class Heroes.
Tyga recently released his second album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King, adding to his extensive back catalogue of two studio albums, 14 mixtapes, eight singles (including four as a featured artist), and 48 music videos.
Careless World was preceded by the release of the singles Far Away, Still Got It, Rack City and Faded, with all four appearing on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Rack City has become the most successful single from the album, becoming Tyga‘s first single to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and also charting in Australia, Canada and here in the UK.
Tyga hits O2 Academy Bristol on May 28, 2012. Tickets go on sale at 9am on March 23, 2012.
