rBeatz Radio took to the studio and got an inside scoop on a new rap artist coming to the scene from Charlotte, NC. Introducing EKLY and his 7 song EP “Divine” which can be summed up in one word – FIRE.
Although fresh out the gate, EKLY has shown an awesome ability to change style and I want to almost say genre without losing quality or skipping a step in lyrics or flow. His initial song submitted to rBeatz that is streaming on OuiGlobal radio is a hard hitting, Juice World vibe track. His next four song EP switched gears and dons a more R&B vibe.
Getting started EKLY made his music and kept it to himself. Soon, he found that his peers and family were really into his work, and he began using that support to motivate him to make more. His lyrics are EKLY’s message behind the music. His newest album dropping today, June 10, called Divine is about exactly that. Put yourself right where you need to be and embrace, we are all on this Earth for a reason. “I’m here until I fulfill my job on this Earth,” he told us.
His beats are purely his own and don’t rely on sounds or sampling from other artists he creates the beats himself in his own studio.
He closes his studio for the day to pick up the skates. Light as a feather across the ice, Kyle competes with other teens in the Charlotte area in an amateur hockey league. Music, hockey, school, and more. Kyle focuses on school and aims to attend college but is looking forward to his junior year of high school.
