Earlier this week, Tyga unveiled the cover art for his upcoming album KYOTO, which depicts a naked woman with tiger tail bent over in front of what appears to be a Japanese flag.
The cover stirred up some backlash due to its apparent disrespect for the Japanese flag. Twitter was not having it.
In a TMZ interview, Tyga said that he thinks that the cover is “lit”. “It’s art, man. It’s art,” he said. Tyga further noted that the cover was not a Japanese flag, but a rising sun. “The artist [Hajime Sorayama] is Japanese. He’s a very well known Japanese designer. That’s why I did it with him.”
