West Coast Rap

Artist: 
Kyle (feat. Lil Yachty)
Label: 
Indie-Pop

"iSpy" is the newest single from West Coast rapper Kyle, featuring the man, the legend, Lil Yachty. Kyle is typically known for his light-hearted and quirky style of music, as is Lil Yachty with his music and message of positivity, so "iSpy" is within his comfort zone. I think because it's a stand-alone single (as of now) this keeps this song from being boring compared to other Kyle songs. I never thought that Kyle would ever collab with Lil Yachty, most likely due to popularity differences.

It doesn't get much harder than starting your track with a blood gang whistle, but the beat that follows - produced by SmokeyGotBeatz, and sampling from Snoop Dogg's "Pump Pump" and "The Shiznit"  - comes close. SmokeyGotBeatz created a beat from rocky, West Coast style drums laced with piano raps and gunshots which is accompanied by a chorus that calls out to Jay Rock's fellow gangsters and acnowledges the guns, drugs, prostitutes, and money in the streets- what are, for Jay Rock, "out here."
