Watch Tyga Explain Paul McCartney Grammy After-Party Drama; Rapper Invites Him to a Concert


While many celebrities looked to celebrate after the 58th annual Grammy Awards on Monday night (Feb. 15), but believe it or not, some artists weren't as lucky. After Paul McCartney was reportedly denied entry into Tyga's after-party at a popular Hollywood nightclub, the rapper received a lot of backlash. On Tuesday (Feb. 16), Tyga stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to explain his lack of involvement in the drama and even invited the music icon to an upcoming concert.

Expecting to get into Tyga's huge bash at Argyle nightclub in Hollywood with ease due to his notable influence in the music industry, McCartney was shocked when he was turned away by security for not being on the guest list. The 73-year-old icon wasn't the only one rejected from partying at their establishment that night. He was accompanied by Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and rock musician Beck.

Many wondered how much of that decision came from Tyga and his camp. During a brief appearance on the late night talk show, the 26-year-old California native denied any connection to the after-party diss. In fact, Tyga revealed he didn't even know McCartney was outside of the club. In the segment, they jokingly wouldn't allow the rapper entry into show's greenroom.

"I wish I woulda knew he was outside," Tyga told Kimmel. "I woulda went out there with the mic, brought him in, perform 'Rack City' with me."

Tyga admitted he was bombarded with texts and tweets filled with accusations about that night and TMZ footage which only helped to perpetuate the problem. Kylie Jenner's boyfriend also revealed he was performing during the time of the incident.

Both artists seem to have put the incident behind them. The former Beatles member went on to party at the Republic Records after-party at Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails in Los Angeles with his wife Nancy Shevell, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Woody Harrelson, Beck, and Ariana Grande.

Tyga, on the otherhand, is preparing to kickoff his two-week Rawwest Alive tour today in Portland, Oregon at the Roseland Theater.

"I have a show coming up, February 26th at the Nokia Theatre. So, Paul, if you're watching this, I would love for you to come. I'll personally walk you in!"
