Tyrone is an alter ego of Nicki Minaj, announced for the very first time by Norman in an UStream on May 7, 2011. He is a crackhead from Harlem and he appears in a few songs of Nicki when his voice turns into a voice of someone that is drunk or high. Norman revealed that Tyrone is rapping the last line of Minaj's verse at "Till the World Ends (The Femme Fatale Remix)": "What? What you tired? You need a break? You was hot when? Ricki Lake!".
