The 22-year-old California native was in Las Vegas when he called Power 106 radio host Yesi Ortiz to give details about the melee. He explained that a group of local performers wanted to showcase their talent during his stop in Omaha, however, Tyga politely declined their offer. Later on in his show, someone threw a bottle onstage, which caused him to lose his cool.
"I'm a chill person," the 'Rack City' creator said. "A person want to be disrespectful... I'm tryna put on a great show for people that pay money to see me. Somebody wanna throw a bottle but nobody wanna say who threw the bottle. It's childish stuff."
He went on to reveal that his artist Honey Cocaine was shot as a result of angry local entertainers. "These aren't fans," he revealed. "This situation, it escalated because I wanted to do the show. I was dealing with the same people, you know, from the beginning of the day... Before the show even started. It was a bunch of drama going on already. It was actually some people that were supposed to perform, some local opening acts. I told them they couldn't perform. For tour, I don't want opening acts performing."
He also disclosed that Honey was right beside him during the call post-hospital release and was preparing for a show later that night.
Tyga continues his Careless World tour March 27 at the House of Blues in San Diego, Calif.
