“Emotion is the key ingredient to all music”
KYLE is no stranger when it comes to delivering feel-good music. Swapping his sequences of EP’s for a full-length offering, his latest body of work ‘See You When I am Famous!!!!!!!!!!!!’ marks his fourth album to date. The west coast rapper emerged onto the scene in 2016, with a dynamic collaboration featuring Lil Yachty and since then, there hasn’t been a sign of him easing down from it.
Beneath his effervescent cadence lies thought-provoking, experience-driven vulnerability, and he isn’t afraid to use his artistic dexterities to show it. Entering a new phase, his new album is an attempt to define his significance and growth. PAUSE caught up with the LA-based artiste to speak on new music, fashion, working alongside Tom Holland and his next ventures – here’s what happened.

How are you holding up in Quarantine? Have you been finding yourself extra busy, especially post- See You When I am Famous!!!!!!!!!!!!?
You know what, I’ve been holding up pretty good in quarantine as good as anybody can, obviously that fluctuates. There are times in quarantine where you want to cry, or just enjoying being at home. It’s been an up and down thing for me but as of recently, I’m doing really well with it.
I am randomly busy! When you’re stuck in the house, you are only as busy as you choose to be. Lately, I’ve been working on as many creative projects as one can possibly work on.
Congratulations on your newest album ‘See You When I am Famous!!!!!!!!!!!!’. Before we get into that, let’s begin with introducing yourself. For anyone who may not know, who is KYLE?
Hey everybody, my name is KYLE. I am a musician, actor, scriptwriter, video game enthusiast and activist, some people even call me the ‘mayor slayer’ (if your mayor isn’t doing his job, you can count on Kyle to tweet them) and an all-round nice guy. I like to help people out with my music and give them happy songs. That’s my purpose on the planet.
