2017 XXL Freshman Kyle has finally dropped his debut album, Light of Mine. Following on from the success of his mixtape, Smyle, it’s good to see this album finally come to fruition.
Off the bat Kyle drops a fun track with Ups and Downs. The end of the track features Lil Yachty, who plays the part of Kyle’s conscience throughout the album.
Kyle takes a positive outlook through the upbeat production in Light Of Mine. Ikuyo is the first real track that could have any longevity past being one of Kyle’s fun tunes, large in part to a great verse from 2 Chainz.
The album finishes on the highest note possible, iSpy featuring Lil Yachty. It’s the tune that really propelled Kyle into the mainstream in 2017. It’s a great song to end on and it really rounds everything up well. It’s been a long time coming for Kyle, he’s a fantastic character who has pulled out one helluva debut album. In a world full of forgettable rap albums flying about every day, Kyle has done really well to make something that’s great fun, very unique, and something that could really push him to the next level.
