Kyle Harvey – better known simply as Kyle or Super Duper Kyle, rose to fame with the release of his 2016 single, iSpy. Born in Los Angeles, California, he started to sing at the age of six after developing a keen interest in music. While in elementary school, he was performing songs that he had penned himself.
Having said that, it wasn’t until he was around thirteen that he first began to rap. In 2010, the aspiring musician released a series of mixtapes under the stage name, K.i.D. From there, Kyle came out with his first studio album titled, Beautiful Loser in 2013, which effectively marked his official music debut.
Since then, his popularity has surely soared with the release of an additional album and a number of singles. How much is he worth nowadays? Allegedly upwards of $2 million.

How did Kyle Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on May 18, 1993 in Northridge, California, Kyle (Full Name: Kyle Harvey) spent the majority of his childhood in the city of Ventura. Even as a young boy, he had always held an interest in music. Picking up singing at the age of six, he eventually started to pen his own songs.
Continuing with his passion into his teen years, Kyle was a member of the school choir during his high school days. Having said that, it wasn’t until he was around thirteen years old that he decided to take up rap. In 2010, the aspiring musician began releasing a number of mixtapes under the adopted stage name, K.i.D.
For instance on November 22, 2010, he dropped the title Senior Year– a mixtape, which boasted eight original tracks; some of the titles included Say What I Feel, Celebrity Life, Slow Down The High Rise of K.i.D. and K.i.D.’s Lemonade. While these initial releases didn’t turn him into a superstar per se, it marked the start of his music career.
The last time we checked, the mixtape is available for purchase via Bandcamp for $5 USD.
Continuing to perfect his sound over the next few years, Kyle went on to release the mixtapes, Super Duper, FxL, Second Semester, and This is Water. Most if not all of these titles are still available on his Bootcamp page.
Finally in the summer of 2013, the rapper came out with his debut studio album entitled, Beautiful Loser through the Indie-Pop label. Released as a digital download, the project featured the production of Tomas Barfod, Dave Cappa, Deaf Heff, Bedrock, and Carnage, among others; Mr. Man also made a guest appearance in the track, BANG. A solid step in the right direction for his career, it received many positive reviews from fans.
By the end of 2013, the album had spawned a handful of singles including Keep It First, Fruit Snacks, Raining Love, Bang (Feat. Mr. Man), and View from Hollywood. Although none of them ended up charting, releasing a single in itself was a major milestone for Kyle at the time.
On October 2, 2015, Kyle released his second full length album, Smyle via digital download. Produced by the artist himself, it included thirteen hip hop titles including Don’t Wanna Fall in Love, Deepest Part of Me, Endless Summer Symphony, Remember Me? Feels Good, and The Force; a few artists such as Chance the Rapper, SuperDuperBrick and Jesse Rutherford also made guest appearances.
Considerably more successful than his earlier endeavour, it soon found its way onto the US record charts. Not long after its release, Smyle had reached number 76 on the Billboard Top 200, number 7 on the Top Rap Albums chart and number 10 on the Top R&B and Hip Hop Albums chart- this was a major accomplishment for Kyle.
As of May 2017, his second album has received millions of streams on his official Soundcloud account. For example, its most popular title, Don’t Wanna Fall in Love has since been played over 6.68 million times- that itself says volumes about its popularity.
That same year- 2015, Kyle also released a few non-album singles including Just a Picture (Feat. Kehlani), Doubt It, and King Wavy (Feat. G-Eazy.
Despite all of the relative success that he was met with up until that point, it wasn’t until the winter of 2016 that he received a career breakthrough with the viral hit, iSpy. Released on December 2, 2016, the track featured fellow rapper Lil Yachty, something which may have further boosted the song’s popularity.
Responsible for propelling him into a new level of fame, it ended up reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100 after debuting at number 80. His first title to reach the top five, it later also charted at number 3 on the Hot R&B and Hip Hop Songs, number 19 on the Mainstream top 40 and at the top of the Billboard Rhythmic Chart.
However, its success didn’t stop in the United States. Within a few months, the hit single had made its way onto numerous international music charts including those in the UK, Switzerland, Portugal, New Zealand, Slovakia, Scotland, Switzerland, Australia, and Belgium. Since its original release, iSpy has gone gold in the US after selling over 500,000 copies.
The song’s official music video, which was released on Youtube in April 2017, has since garnered over 44,000,000 views. That March, a lyric video was also uploaded onto his channel, which has since been viewed more than 66,000,000 times.
Without a doubt, iSpy yielded Kyle a large amount of earnings- especially when compared to his earlier works. Although it’s unsure how much exactly, we estimate that it’s around the $500,000 mark- give or take some.
While the artist hasn’t come out with any studio albums since 2015, he did go on to release two singles this year- Want Me Bad and Not the Same, the first of which featured Cousin Stizz. Although they didn’t chart nor receive RIAA certification, they still proved to be popular among fans nonetheless.
In addition to the previous mentioned projects, a portion of his funds have also come from his collaboration with other artists. For instance, he’s worked with Futuristic and Sk4mc in I’m a Problem, with Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment in Wanna Be Cool, and with Taylor Bennett in Favourite Colors.
Other than what he makes from his musical releases, live shows are another major source of revenue for the star. Since he embarked on his music career back in the early 2010’s, Kyle has hit the stage multiple times to entertain crowds in a number of cities. Speaking of which, he recently performed at The Chainsmokers Memories Tour alongside Kiiara and Emily Warren. According to his official website, he will also be performing a number of shows across the US later this summer.
On the web, his Youtube account also rakes in a considerable amount from google’s partnership program. To date, his official channel (@LoveKyleTV) has accumulated over 460,000 subscribers and more than 130,000,000 video views across his uploads. So far, his most popular title, the lyric MV for iSpy has been viewed over 66,000,000 times. Assuming that he earns a few dollars for every 1000 views, that’s a lot of thousands of dollars right there!
Through his official website (superduperkyle.com), he also earns supplemental income from his merchandise store- in which fans are able to purchase official products such as T-shirts and hoodies.
Currently, it is estimated that Kyle the rapper has as a net worth of $2 million. While this is impressive and all (especially for a twenty something year old), it’s likely that this amount will rise as he continues to strive forward with his rap career over the next few years. With a little bit of luck, we may even see him break into television and Hollywood someday!
