- What is your real name? How did you come up with your artist name?
Okay so i don’t really disclose my real name, however my artist name comes from my middle name, my middle name is tyrone so i shortened it down to tye, and that turned into “KID Tye”.
- What do you think got you into music?
What got me into music was honestly my dad, he would always play old school rap like Wu tang, Cypress hill, 50 Cent all that type of music around the house in the car just everywhere my whole childhood. So as I grew up I also fell in love with rap and started to branch off with my own style of music listening to more modern rappers like, Juice WRLD, Lil Peep and Lil Uzi. And honestly one day I was hella bored and i was like ima just try making a song for fun, so i used some old gaming headphones and audacity to make a song, and i never stopped after that.
- Who would you like to have as a dream feature on one of your songs?
My dream feature for anyone to ever live would be Juice WRLD, he’s honestly an idol to me and i truly love his stuff. But if we’re talking about someone who’s alive i’d love to work with lil skies, he’s someone I’ve looked up to since the age of like 12.
- Do you have any future music dropping soon?
I plan to keep dropping a single every month or close to that so fans and everyone can expect non stop music from me.
- Your favorite song by yourself? (Our – Hollywood Bound)
My favorite personal song from myself that’s released would have to be REDLIGHT.
