Ventura rapper Kyle put out the See You When I’m Famous album in July, which saw him collaborating with the like of Tyga, Trippie Redd and Rico Nasty. Also an actor, he’s a movie called Cherry which is coming out in 2021. At the end of October, he dropped the “What it is” remix, featuring Chris Brown.
“This song is special to me, not only because it’s my favorite song I made for this album, but also because working with Chris Brown has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid,” he said in a statement. “I remember hearing my first Chris Brown song; I was probably in the sixth grade. He’s the epitome of what it means to be a superstar, which is something I aspire to be. Working in the studio with him was pretty nuts too because I got to see his process and I got to hear how he does the very thing that has inspired me for more than two decades. It’s been extremely awesome to have the privilege to do this song with him and I hope y’all love it.”
He’s jamming with friends on Wednesday, so check it out.
