On “Badass,” Kid Ink says, “I feel like the man of the hour.” Considering his big RCA Records signing announcement, this is a very accurate feeling. After accomplishing amazing feats last year, Ink and his team felt like it was proper to team up with a major. However, DJ Ill Will assures everyone that everything in his music will remain the same: “RCA gave us a unique opportunity to join forces with them while still staying true to our fans and what got us here in the first place.” Congratulations to Kid, Will and The Alumni!
Featuring a snippet on Rocket Ship Shawty, “Badass” is the official debut single from his upcoming sophomore album. Backed up by hyped verses from Wale and Meek Mill, the song isn’t bad. It, without a doubt, sounds like a grower in the same sense as some songs on Up & Away.
