cradle snatcher rapper, Tyga's record "The Gold Album" sold a measly 2200 copies in its first week, and the world wet themselves laughing at the irony, the dude has to step it up for his next music video in order to make up for terrible sales. Bearing the traditional Kardashian-Jenner flag, the rapper enlisted the assistance of his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, to co-star in his video and drive those covetable VEVO views through the roof. Kylie is following in the footsteps of her older sisters Kim Kardashian in Kanye West's "Bound 2" and Khloé Kardashian in French Montana's "Don't Panic."
This is probably a very smart business decision on Tyga's part. After all, widely spread app download statistics demonstrate that Kylie's fans far outnumber the other sisters. Kylie's app brought in significantly more subscribers than the rest of her clan — around 1.2 million more than sisters Kim and Khloé.
However, photos leaked on set of the video show Kylie and Tyga donning monogrammed varsity jackets. In line with creepy men's fantasies involving school girls, maybe Tyga was inspired earlier this year while a then 17-year-old Kylie was studying for her high school finals.
