Tyga Defends 'Kyoto' Cover: "It's Art, Man"

Tyga Defends 'Kyoto' Cover: "It's Art, Man"
Earlier this week, Tyga revealed plans to release a new album titled Kyoto by sharing some extremely WTF artwork, which you can feast your eyes on above.

The image, which comes from the mind of Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama, features a nude woman-tiger hybrid in front of the flag of Japan. The artwork has left plenty of people offended, disgusted or both.

Now, the inquiring minds at TMZ have taken Tyga to task over the suggestive artwork. A cameraman confronted the rapper and his crew on the street in Beverley Hills, asking about how some called it furry porn and thought it was disrespectful to the Japanese flag.

"It's art, man. It's art," Tyga said. "It's definitely an art piece. It's the beginning, just keep watching."

When it came to furry porn, Tyga answered, "I don't know what that is."
