Tyga is getting accolades in the adult industry for his pornographic movie “Rack City XXX: The Movie.”
The rap star has been nominated in three different categories for the 2013 AVN Awards, which pays honor to the top adult films of the previous year.
“I’m surprised [at the nominations], but appreciate AVN for recognizing the work I did [directing] for the first time,” Tyga said.
Tyga produced and directed “Rack City XXX: The Movie,” which features porno stars like Jada Fire, Havana Ginger, Ice LaFox and others.
Tyga himself is featured in “Rack City XXX: The Movie” in a nonsexual role.
“On behalf of AVN, congrats to Tyga on his trio of AVN awards nominations. Seeing Tyga direct ‘Rack City XXX’ in person, I could immediately tell how dedicated he was to the craft,” said AVN Media Network’s Managing Editor Steve Javors.
“He paid attention to detail, was conscientious about getting good performances from his cast, and really wanted to put his personal stamp on this project,” Javors continued. “He’s not the type of guy to slap his name on the box and have someone else do the legwork. He really cared about putting out a solid product – and he did. Not to mention, the soundrack is bangin’!”
In addition to attending the 2013 AVN Awards, Tyga will also perform a medley of his hits during the event, which will take place on January 19th at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Best Wall-to-Wall Release – “Rack City XXX,” Tyga / Hush Hush
Best Music Soundtrack – “Rack City XXX,” Tyga / Hush Hush
Best Oral Sex Scene – Havana Ginger and Ice LaFox; “Rack City XXX,” Tyga / Hush Hush
