Grammy-nominated rapper credits Lil Wayne after early 'Masked Singer' elimination

On The Masked Singer Wednesday night, viewers were introduced to Group B, which was made up of the Queen of Hearts, the Mallard, the Cupcake, the Dalmatian, and the Banana Split. While all five mystery celebrities put on quite a show, it was the Dalmatian's future in the competition that was spotty, even though he sang a song from the OG dog – Snoop Dogg.

Some viewers were a little sad that the Dalmatian was eliminated but, ultimuttely, they got over that real quick, once they found out that he was Grammy-nominated rapper Tyga!

Tyga, also known as Kylie Jenner's ex-boyfriend, said he decided to do The Masked Singer because he was inspired by another rapper, Season 3 contestant Lil Wayne, who, ironically, also suffered an early elimination.

While Tyga may not have ended up being the underdog of the season, the celebrity panelists were grateful to have him on the show. Robin Thicke shared, "We're really lucky to have you on the show, Tyga. Any time we get to have the young, hottest cats in the game on our show, it makes us all look a little cooler. You even made Ken look cooler, so thank you."
