Though he made a name for himself, dating Blac Chanya and Kylie Jenner, he struggled to keep his finances in shape.
Tyga’s net worth was much higher in the past, but because of a few bad financial decisions and IRS hit, it dropped significantly.
Let’s check out Tyga’s net worth over the years.
In a typical year, Tyga makes around $3.7 million from his various pursuits.
He makes healthy money from his album sales, digital music streaming, social media endorsements, businesses, and live shows and features.

Similarly, the following year the state of California hit Tyga with $19,000 worth of unpaid taxes.

Tyga | Houses & Cars
Even though it was widely reported that the rapper Tyga owns a big mansion in Calabasas, California, worth $6.5 million; the news was not true at all. It was also reported that Tyga purchased the mansion for Blac Chyna after their son was born.
Well, it is true that Tyga lived like a king in several Calabasas estates, but they all were rented.
And interestingly, he was not the ideal tenant either.
He was sued by the former landlords in June 2015 for failing to pay more than $80,000 in rent.
With all the interests and penalties, the amount owed was around $124,000.
He was sued once again by the different landlord for failing to pay more than $50,000 in rent at another Calabasa house.
Rappers are known for their show-off attitude, and Tyga is no exception. Some sources claim that Tyga has an extravagant collection of wheels.
According to the report, his collection of rides includes Ferrari 812 Superfast, Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge, Lamborghini Aventador S Custom, Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes G500 4×4, Ferrari La-Ferrari, and Mercedes GLS 600.
While his stature as a renowned rapper justifies his collection of cars but given his history with the IRS, the Californian state, and legal issues, we cannot say for sure that Tyga owns all these automobiles.
To top it off, in February 2016, Tyga’s Mercedes G-Wagon was in the process of being repossessed. With all this news, it’s pretty hard to tell what car he actually owns.
