It appears Tyga is getting ready to join the marijuana business. This weekend, the 28-year-old rapper posted a photo of himself in a grow room on Instagram with the caption,
“Lil babies @tastekush coming soon.” The linked Instagram page for “Taste Kush” is for a new marijuana business whose first post came on June 26 with another photo of Tyga. “Taste” is also the name of Tyga’s recent hit single with Offset.
“Everyone stay tuned @tastekush is coming strong, exclusive taste kush strain only by us, and the first drop will be coming very soon,” another Instagram post says. The company hints that the strain will be available at ADCC Dispensary in Los Angeles.
The most recent posts on Taste Kush’s page reveal a close connection to Tyga’s personal brand—including videos soundtracked by “Taste.”
With this new business venture, Tyga joins a growing list of rappers who have joined the marijuana industry, including Snoop Dogg, The Game, Wiz Khalifa, and Freddie Gibbs.
The new strain could also help immortalize Tyga’s “Taste” single, which currently sits inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The song could also be assisted by a potential Cardi B remix, which she teased in late July.
