Born and raised in California, KYLE has developed a unique style of rap which many have termed as “happy rap”. This style is expertly showcased in his 2017 breakout chart-topping hit “iSpy” (feat. Lil Yachty )” which is now 4x RIAA-Certified platinum, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs and #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song continues to hold strong in the top 10 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart and has amassed over 492 million streams. The video for “iSpy,” directed by Colin Tilley, has over 260 million views on YouTube.
And after a string of popular independent releases, he recently released his major-label album debut, “Light of Mine”. With the release, KYLE’s cheerful and fun-loving sound demonstrates how dramatically hip-hop has broadened since the genre’s early days. The album received rave reviews and has already accumulated millions of streams online, cementing his place in the happy-rap ranks. Following the momentum of his musical success, KYLE recently stepped into the world of acting when he was cast in the lead role in Netflix’s comedy film The After Party.
