Kye Billion caused a recent stir in the community when he fired his manager, Latrina Blackberry, and changed his name. The video of her being fired can be found on the rapper’s YouTube page. The source says that the rapper was unhappy with Blackberry’s lack of focus on her music. Since the rapper posted the video, he has placed links to it on his Twitter and Facebook pages. His Twitter followers have responded to his videos both positively and negatively.
Kye Billion’s main marketing source appears to be YouTube. While he is eager to connect with his fans through social media, he focuses on producing new videos on a regular basis. The rapper, who looks like LL Cool J and sounds like Cameron, posts all of his current music on the website. Rather than put his efforts into magazine articles or covers, the rapper keeps it real by posting on a more personal level where his fans can respond to him. His latest single, “Street Runnas”, was recently posted as well despite his drama with his previous manager, showing fans that he is truly dedicated to his music.
Currently, rumors that Kye Billion is negotiating a record deal are being heard; however, the source says very little about the details of a potential album. Many fans are hoping for new music but some seem quite content with his singles such as “Adult Conversations”
