Rapper Tyga is proving he's an artist in more ways than one. 

The Young Money Entertainment emcee unveiled a picture of his first painting on Instagram Thursday. Set on a large, white canvas, the painting features an ancient Egyptian theme, complete with hieroglyphs. 

In the photo, the rapper stands in front of the piece, admiring his work.  Tyga says the painting is inspired by the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. 

Tyga is gearing up for the release of his fourth project, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
