Tyga Surprises with Anime in his “Boss Up” Music Video

The day after Christmas, American rapper and former boyfriend of Kylie Jenner, Tyga decided to drop a new animated video for his new single ‘Boss Up’. The visual style he decided to go for? Anime. Even giving a quick shout out to the anime community on Instagram.


The video follows a sudden trend of American rappers visually or lyrically incorporating anime into their music. Just a quick search of some of the most popular hip-hop artist today shows the majority utilizing anime avatars as their social media profile pictures.

This goes to show how the younger generation growing up watching anime have now come under its influence as adults in some shape or form.

You can watch Tyga’s ‘Boss Up’ video down below.
