Legal Drama

‘Rack City’ Rapper Tyga Sued Over Malibu Mansion PAY UP OR GET OUT!

‘Rack City’ by Tyga music video and song has got to be one of the worse piece of music ever that I have heard and seen. The beat was tight the lyrics and video. Wow! Nevertheless, as expected, the video went viral and you even had white little boys and their grandmothers choreographing to it all.

Hey, it is the world we live in. It is what it is.

In any event, as to this story, Tyga might need to retrace his steps so he can retrieve all that money he spent at the ‘Rack City’ strip club to pay his rent.

Folks, we are in Landlord Tenant territory. You pay your rent when it is due or stand a chance of getting evicted. There might also be other legal actions a Landlord may take against you, depending on the facts.

Read the excerpt below from TMZ:

“Rack City” rapper Tyga owes WAY more than ten, ten, ten, twenties, and them fifties on his rented Malibu mansion — so says Tyga’s landlord … and now, the guy’s suing to get his money.

A man named Gholamreza Rezai filed the lawsuit against Tyga and his music company, claiming Tyga signed a one-year lease in June, agreeing to pay $16,000 per month to live in the luxurious pad … but he stopped paying rent last month.

Rezai claims Tyga expressed a desire to move out by September 30th — informing Rezai that fans kept showing up at his front door … and Tyga was worried the home didn’t offer enough security. .  .”

TMZ has the full story.
