Background

Kyle Rifkin's hometown is Harlem, New York. Growing up in Harlem, he felt he needed to grow up really fast. His father dealt with alcohol and his mother was being abused. The abuse became so bad that she had to leave. It became Kyle's responsiblity to feed his brothers and sister. He would have to beg for change or sing.

He entered singing contests, and he felt he needed to win or he would have no money. He would come home at night with prize money for food. One day, the family was outside when a cab pulled up. Kyle's mother came out, having returned to bring back her kids. She had been looking to secure a steady job. Kyle and his mother felt the strength of the other kept them going. Kyle now strives to make something out of his life to prove to his mother he will never give up.  Currently Kyle Rifkin can be seen as a featured artist on I love it he 90's world tour with Rob Base, Coolio, Tone Loc, Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, All-4-One and Color Me Bad.
