Super Duper Kyle
KYLE HARVEY knew at an early age that music was his destiny. So as a kid, the Ventura, California rapper
went on a journey to develop one of the most unique voices in music. "One of my earliest memories is
me singing in my front yard when I was five-years-old," the now 23-year-old says.
His mother played rock bands like Incubus, his grandparents filled their home with Frank Sinatra classics
and when KYLE was ten, his dad introduced him to hip-hop music. "We were in the car and he was
slapping Ol' Dirty Bastard's 'Baby I Got Your Money,'" he remembers. "After that I started rapping
instantly— the next day."
These days KYLE's raps have gotten him faithful fans who helped him to sell out numerous nationwide
tours and rack up millions of streams. Now, with his latest single "iSpy," featuring Lil Yachty skyrocketing
up the charts, KYLE is making it clear that he's just getting started and isn't slowing down any time soon.
The inescapable ear worm finds KYLE delivering a childlike sing-a-long that plays off of the children's
guessing game with a 2017 social media twist. "I spy with my little eye a girly I could get cause she don't
get too many likes," KYLE sings on the track's hook.
Initially, as a kid, KYLE drew inspiration from street-wise rappers like Jadakiss and Scarface, but he would
ultimately find his true voice in 2011 when he was 17, while recording a freestyle over Gucci Mane's
"Lemonade" beat. "I didn't grow up tough. I tried to rap like them as a kid and it just didn't sound real,"
he says.
Instead of trying to mimic what he thought a rapper should sound like, KYLE learned to use his natural
speaking voice and personality. What he discovered was that his laid back Valley vibe and cool Cali flow
was a crowd pleaser.
"I was in high school when artists like Drake, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa were taking over," he says.
"Rap music became more about being yourself at the right moment. It inspired me to be who I wanted
to be."
After dropping a handful of mixtapes, KYLE caught the attention of DJ Carnage, who produced his
bouncy breakout track, "Keep It Real" in 2013. The collaboration perfectly set up his first indie album
Beautiful Loser. The album's singles "Sex & Super Smash Bros" and "Fruit Snacks" quickly became fan
favorites, amassed millions of YouTube plays and solidified KYLE as a rap star to be reckoned with.
In 2015, there was even more growth. After collaborating with G-Eazy on "King Wavy," he released his
sophomore LP SMYLE. Songs the "Star Wars"-influenced "The Force," dude anthem "Really? Yeah!" and
the dance track "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" elevated KYLE from the rest of the rap's rookie set. The video
for "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" finds KYLE playing Nintendo 64, building sandcastles and pulling off
choreographed dance moves to the tune of over 4 million YouTube views to date.
Now hip-hop has a hero who has broken the mold with a love of video games, sci-fi and curly head girls.
"In high school, I was a nerd and quote-unquote a loser," he admits. "But I've made it by accepting
myself, not caring what anyone else thinks and just being a nice guy."
How could you not love this guy?
