Kid Ink’s third studio album ‘Full Speed‘, the follow-up to ‘My Own Lane‘ was released in January 2015 via RCA Records. The album was supported by the singles ‘Body Language‘ featuring Usher and Tinashe, and ‘Hotel‘ featuring Chris Brown.
Kid Ink cruises past all boundaries. The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer can seamlessly slip from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets. There’s absolutely nobody quite like the tattooed from head-to-toe impresario, and that’s the first thing you’ll notice when you take his full-length debut, ‘My Own Lane‘ [Tha Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA Records], for a spin.
Grinding as a producer since the age of 16, he uncovered this creative highway by perfecting a personal style behind the board first. His production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hussle, and more. That experience in the studio set the stage for him to become the versatile and vibrant force he is today.
“My background producing contributes so much to my own music,” Kid Ink admits. “I feel like I have a different ear because of that. I’m always aiming for a bigger sound and a bigger look. Instead of focusing on just a verse or simply spitting, I’ll tackle the melody or harmony and build from there. Then, I make sure what I’m saying matches. There’s got to be continuity. At the same time, I like to twist everything up a little bit.”
His 2014 release ‘My Own Lane‘ solidified him as an artist preserving his independent identity while reaching a new level altogether. Whether it’s embracing tattoo culture further or diving deeper into his other interests like X-Games and NBA, he stands poised to exert a seismic impact.
