      jamaican and haitian are similar

      so tygas father could be haitian and jamaican

        “Please stop.” — Why the fuck are you so riled up? That person didn’t say anything stupid or wrong. They just thought that Tyga shared similar heritage since they’re cousins. Goddamn, people on here so fucking sensitive and retarded. Get a life, bitches.
