KYLE knew at an early age that music was his destiny. As a kid, the Ventura, CA rapper went on a journey to develop one of the most unique voices in music. These days KYLE’s raps have accumulated millions of streams, with his breakout chart-topping single “iSpy (feat. Lil Yachty),” now 3x RIAA-Certified platinum, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs and #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song – which was released in December – continues to hold strong in the top 10 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart and has amassed over 263 million streams. The video for “iSpy,” directed by Colin Tilley, has over 100 million views on YouTube. 2017 has already proved to be KYLE’s year. The 24-year old rapper has been named as part of XXL’s annual Freshman Class for 2017, gracing the publication’s esteemed cover alongside the likes of A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Playboy Carti, XXXTentacion and PnB Rock, to name a few. KYLE has also recently delivered high-energy performances on multiple esteemed stages, including the BET Awards Red Carpet Special, the ACSCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. With numerous sold-out nationwide tours already under his belt and an international headline tour coming up, KYLE is making it clear that he’s just getting started and isn’t slowing down any time soon.
