On December 3, 2012, debate arose concerning Tyga's upbringing. Tyga claimed to have been brought up in a low socioeconomic area of Compton, but on the television show Bustas in 2008 he claimed he grew up in a "well-to-do" home in the Valley, where his parents drove a Range Rover and CL600 Mercedes Benz. He also claimed that he attained his nickname from his mother calling him 'Tiger Woods'. There has been speculation that his claims on the show were satirical and not to be taken seriously, and the veracity of his statements has been a subject of heated debate. Tyga responded to the video's Twitter leak: "When u 14 an ambitious u don't give a fuk about anything. Scripted tv isn't that what we all live for.Hahahaha"
