Tyga wants to take a moment to clarify some things about his relationship with Kylie Jenner.

In an interview with the San Francisco radio station 106 KMEL, the rapper addressed one of the main topics often discussed about him and his girlfriend: their age difference.

Tyga, 26, is eight years older than 18-year-old Kylie, but he says age was of no concern to him when they began dating.

"I don't know," he said. "It's hard to talk about that because people are gonna bash. I didn't understand it though because I'm like, 'This person is a really good person.'"

In fact, he believed the constant criticism at the beginning of their relationship was a test.

"It's almost like, the devil keeps trying to tell me something to not follow God, just let God do what he gotta do. So, I don't really know how to speak on that because it's just something I have to deal with. A lot of things in life, you just gotta deal with it as it comes."

He says they definitely balance each other out with their highly-publicized lives, helping each other grow and learn along the way.

"Me being older than her, I've been through a lot more things so I can help her more with it even though she's been more in tabloid media limelight than I have been," he explained. "But I can see that because I know what type of person she is. I know what she deals with."

One thing they've had to overcome together is the intense interest surrounding his ex-fiancé and mother of his son, Blac Chyna

"I just feel like the grass is always greener on the other side to people, you feel me," he said. "It's like worry about your own grass and yours will be just as green. I'm keeping it all the way one hundred."

He continued, "I always had a passion for something, and I've always been able to focus on one thing so I don't really know how it feels to hate on someone else or worry about what someone else is doing. I'm so focused on my vision. For some people you just got to kind of find a vision."
