This past weekend at ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA, rapper KYLE greeted fans for his latest campaign with UGG. Best known for his No. 1 hit “iSpy” with Lil Yachty, he should definitely be on your list of rappers to watch out for in the upcoming year.
While we got to visit the amazing booth with Footaction and UGG, fans patiently awaited to take photos and greet the young and super talented rapper. Though our time with KYLE was short, he explained why he wanted to collaborate with the UGG brand.
As I get older, I really just wanted to be comfortable, especially on tour. UGG represents comfort, style, and quality. It was important for me to partner with a brand that fit me and my California lifestyle.
The California rapper also conversed about his relationship with Oakland’s rising artist Kehlani, who has a been a long time friend. KYLE mentioned how with Kehlani, it’s always been a great vibe and making music together is always fun. A few years ago, the Render staff was able to see KYLE open up for Kehlani at the Observatory in Orange County, CA and since then, both artists have made major strides in their own careers.
The 24-year-old rapper attributed his style to his area of Ventura, CA where he grew up. Ventura is well-known for their surf community and UGG has always been apart of the culture. The latest models from the UGG collaboration include the Neumel, Harkley and Toggle.
