Kylie Jenner wants to be a rapper.

The 17-year-old reality TV star has reportedly been working with her rumoured new boyfriend Tyga in the recording studio, as she wants to follow in Iggy Azalea's footsteps.

A source close to the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star said: ''Kylie wants to be a rapper - she loves Iggy Azalea and thinks she could be on her level, with Tyga's help.''

Kylie's parents, Kris and Bruce Jenner, are said to be amused by her career goals, but Tyga thinks she has potential.

The insider added to US Star magazine: ''He actually thinks Kylie has some talent but tells her she needs to polish her lyrics before he'll agree to do a song with her.''

Earlier this year, Kylie dismissed rumours she wanted to be ''the next Katy Perry'' after a friend claimed: ''Kylie is now working on her first single! She is telling everyone that she knows she is going to be the next Katy Perry.''

She wrote on Twitter: ''I respect everyone's art! but I don't want to be the next anybody. I just want to be the next Kylie Jenner.''
