Kid Ink’s career has been a slow burner. Since he made his first steps into the industry, he has built up his name over the course of three mixtapes, various records and a lot of videos before releasing his independent debut album, Up & Away, in June 2012. Touring followed. After selling 20K (total is close to 50K) out the gate, he released one more mixtape before announcing his signing to RCA Records in 2013. More touring followed, then his Almost Home EP was released to retail. It was merely a taste of what was to come. On January 7,… continue reading
Following his RCA Records debut, Kid Ink is living the life. A #1 single with “Show Me,” 50K sold in his first week and an upcoming tour with Los and Bizzy Crook (dates can be found after the jump). Things can’t get much sweeter at the moment. Or can they? We could have predicted a remix for “Show Me” would arrive. With 2 Chainz, Juicy J and Trey Songz lending their talents to the DJ Mustard-produced record, this is a pretty hot remix. “West Coast back like ’94,” Ink proclaims on the opening verse (and he isn’t lying).

Having a successful run as an independent artist, Kid Ink signed to RCA Records early 2013, got the ball rolling with an EP and toured all throughout. For the first big album release of this year, My Own Lane aims to please the mainstream, get you dancing and, of course, provide entertainment in the car, club, headphones, etc. He gets features from Chris Brown, Tyga, Los, MGK, Maejor Ali and more. Stream below, then get the album for only $7.99 on iTunes.
The pre-order of My Own Lane has went up on iTunes. With it comes four singles, two of which we’ve heard already. “Iz U Down” is a sexual orgy of separate ideas from Kid Ink and Tyga. “No Miracles” seems like the next single to push after “Show Me.” Ink is off to a good start and the finish line isn’t too far away (January 7). Single artwork for “No Miracles” after the jump if it’s needed. Previously: Kid Ink Ft. Los – No Option Follow @SermonsDomain
While we’ve heard a few of Kid Ink’s My Own Lane records from an earlier EP, the newer material has been kept under wraps minus the Chris Brown-assisted “Show Me.” XXL premieres track seven “No Option.” A Los verse or two is always appreciated when you know he’s going to go and kill it. Ink even steps it up a bit. My Own Lane drops January 7. Previously: Album Cover & Track Listing: Kid Ink – My Own Lane Follow @SermonsDomain
Kid Ink signed to RCA Records and wasted no time in getting his album out to retail. My Own Lane hits shelves on January 7, and the cover depicts Ink with his hands over his mouth, showing off his expensive looking watches and rings, and his skeleton tattoo that graces his skin. We know Chris Brown and DJ Mustard are featured, but other than that he’s kept it pretty quiet. The track listing should turn up soon. Update: The track listing is out. Features from Pusha T, Los, MGK, Maejor Ali, Tyga and more. Previously: Kid Ink Ft. Styles P –… continue reading
