#MusicMonday: Kyle

I’m excited to announce a new feature to the blog, shedding light on some of my favorite sounds: #MusicMonday. Admittedly, I don’t dedicate as much time and energy to discovering new music as I used to, but hopefully, this will inspire me to get back on my game. #MusicMonday will highlight anything from artists I can’t get out of my head to throwback playlists. Let’s keep it casual and see where this goes.

So without further ado, this #MusicMonday will feature KYLE, a rapper from southern California that I’m actually obsessed with and developing and embarrassingly juvenile crush on. A hot celebrity is a hot celebrity, and I don’t care much about them either way, but my infatuation with Kyle Harvey is starting to bring me back to my elementary and middle school crazes for Bow Wow, Bryan from B5, and Lil Fizz of B2K. Like, I’m borderline concerned. The thing is, I can’t even explain my attraction to him. My type is basically any guy in a Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers or Vineyard Vines catalogue, and that’s not Kyle… at all. But ya girl might actually faint on the spot if I ever met him in person. It’s that serious. 

The first song I heard by him was Keep It Real, and I was immediately compelled by his unique, playful voice, his high quality but light hearted lyricism, and beats that you just couldn’t help but bob your head to. More than anything, though, I was drawn in by how genuine and down to earth he seemed. For all I know, it’s a gimmick, but KYLE has an appeal that I can’t quite put into words and that I haven’t felt since I was a high schooler that thought I was edgy for listening to Tyler, the Creator, or when I discovered G-Eazy my sophomore year of college. Actually, speaking of G-Eazy, he falls into that Hoodie Allen category of rap as well. It’s not the kind of hip hop you listen to when you want to feel tough, it’s the kind you listen to when you want to feel good. His music harbors a rare combination of energy and creativity (both on his part and the part of his producers) without feeling like it’s trying too hard, and it’s unbelievably refreshing.

Mark my words; this 22 year old will be a household name before Kim K pops out her next kid. Between his dedication to his craft, his honesty and his talent, it’s only a matter of time, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this star in the making.

  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
