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 2x 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 nearly 70 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 ASCAP 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.

An MC who was lifted to the majors thanks to a groundswell of support, Washington, D.C.'s GoldLink mixes forward-looking hip-hop, jittery indie rhythms, and heavy danceable beats that hark all the way back to the '80s and D.C.'s go-go movement. Born D'Anthony Carlos, he launched his career as Gold Link James. Sharing his vibrant, busy tracks online earned him a following that steadily grew, then he paused for a bit, and reappeared in 2013 as simply GoldLink. Every upload gained more attention, while producers like Kaytranada and the Danish crew Galimatias & Joppe collaborated with the MC. When he dropped the street release The God Complex in 2014, he was contacted by legendary producer Rick Rubin, but tours with SBTRKT and Flume, plus work with Chet Faker on the track "On You," kept him from completing his official debut. Rubin earned a "mentor" credit on GoldLink's 2015 LP And After That, We Didn't Talk, which was released by Sony's Soulection imprint. A year later, he signed a deal with RCA and released a new single "Fall in Love" which featured rapper Ciscero and co-production from Canadian hip-hop fusion band BadBadNotGood and DJ Kaytranada. Additional singles "Crew" and "Mediation" preceded RCA's release of his second album, At What Cost, which dropped in March 2017.
