KYLE opens up about unending pressure arising out of XXL selections, and his affinity for Kanye & Kid Cudi.

A surprise inclusion in last year's XXL Freshman Class, KYLE has dutifully kept the ball rolling in 2018. The rapper sat down with HNHH TV to rate a series of items on a sliding scale ranging from plain old SUPER to SUPER DUPER sublime, first siding against Instagram for being too unapologetically graphic at times. He also proved sensitive, and with good reason, when he defended the 2018 Freshman Class. The expectation tacked onto members of the list often feels unscalable, when you consider how undefined the criteria has been since its inception in 2007. KYLE sees the selection process as both gift and curse, depending on whom it covers.

KYLE reserved his fist SUPER DUPER rating for Kanye & Kid Cudi's Kids See Ghosts project, unmasking himself as a real Yeezy lifer in the process. He also scored "Rap Beef" with an unmistakable SUPER DUPER, and another DUPER for Moviegoing, even in this day in age with ticket prices going out of style. Check out the rest of thoughts and ratings. The beauty of KYLE's brain lies in the casual observations he makes along the way.
