Less than two months after the former pair called it quits for the second time, the “Rack City” rapper sat down for a radio interview with Big Boy TV to share his side of the story, particularly why he currently feels better without a leading lady.

“I’m single. I’m enjoying life,” he declared, simultaneously refuting rumors that he is dating lingerie model Demi Rose.

The rapper, who recently appeared in his first movie Barbershop: The Next Cut and has a reality series on MTV, claims his highly public relationship with the reality star concealed his own abilities.

“Being in a very public relationship like that, it’s hard for other people to see you differently,” he said. “It overshadowed a lot of my talents and a lot of things I worked hard for.”

While Tyga said the breakup was mutual and that he and Kylie are still friends
