Tyga is also a regular in the gossip columns for his high-profile relationships, including with Blac Chyna and Kylie Jenner.
Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Antonio Cartagena, has released 10 studio albums and been nominated for five Grammy Awards. His biggest hits include 2002’s “What’s Luv” featuring Ashanti, “Get it Poppin’” featuring Nelly and “Lean Back” with the Terror Squad.
