Kylie Jenner is totally in love with Tyga, but she’s not very happy with his career. The ‘KUWTK’ star wants him to be more like Drake and is now trying to light a ‘fire under his ass,’ so they can be an ‘it’ couple just like Kim and Kanye, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY!
Kylie Jenner, 18, and Tyga, 25, may be Hollywood’s buzziest new couple, but that’s apparently not enough for the 18-year-old teen queen. Kylie, who is currently outselling her sisters with her app, has been comparing the rapper to Drake, 28, in hopes that it will push him to work harder, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Her goal is to make them a Hollywood “it” couple — just like Kim Kardashian, 34, and Kanye West, 38!

“Kylie’s Hollywood’s ‘it’ girl, but she wants more than that,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She wants her and Tyga to be Hollywood’s ‘it’ couple, just like Kim and Kanye. The only reason she compared him to Drake was because of the success of their mix tapes. When Drake dropped If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, it caught everybody by surprise and it was the most-talked about tape for a week after that. Drake had killer tracks on the mix and Kylie knew every word to ‘Know Yourself’ the day after it dropped. Kylie just wants Tyga to be on and poppin’ like Drake, and sitting on top of the game. That’s why she made the comparison — to put a fire under his ass, and make him hit the studio harder.”
If it seems like she’s being too hard on Tyga, it’s only because she loves him and understands his potential. “She would never talk down Tyga’s new mix tape, Fuk What They Talkin’ Bout,” our source added. “Hell, she was in the ‘Stimulated’ music video! She knew that by being in the video, her presence would draw major attention to it. And she was right! Everybody talked about the video and it made the song that much more popular. Kylie knew what she was doing. She did that to help her baby and to hype up that song and the rest of his mix tape. All she wants is for Tyga’s mixes to get the kind of energy like Drake’s do.”
Predictably, Tyga did not enjoy being compared to Drake. “He got extremely offended and heated,” added the source. “He said, ‘Bae, how dare you compare me to that meathead, Drake. That’s f–ked up. You don’t know nothing about rap.’” Perhaps realizing how much her words had hurt him, though, Kylie remained levelheaded following his comments. “Kylie didn’t take offense to it,” said the source. “All she said was, ‘You’re right,’ and ‘I was just trying to motivate you.’”
