On Wednesday evening, Tyga opened up for Lil’ Wayne on the Chicago stop of his Carter III promotional tour. Though his set only included four songs, all of which were from his recently-released debut, No Introduction, the crowd was hype during the entire twenty minutes he performed. On I Am, a song that didn’t make the official album but managed to get squeezed in as an iTunes bonus track, Tyga and his mentor Wayne discuss what they are, as well as what they could be. Unlike any artist who has featured Weezy on a track before him, the California-bred rookie spits the line “I am what I am, to a fan I am him… a legend I am.” It seems like Wayne has found himself the perfect artist for Young Money Entertainment.
