House of Blues presents Ones to Watch with Skype Presents Kid Ink – My Own Lane 2014 US Tour. With King Los, Bizzy Crook.
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 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 Hu$$le, 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,” he 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.”
My Own Lane solidifies 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.
“We’ve got a bigger machine to help out with what we were already doing from day one,” he says. “I feel so blessed to be in this position, but it all starts with the music one-hundred percent. That won’t change.”
Ultimately, that music is going to continue satisfying listeners worldwide as MTV International has chosen Kid Ink as their first PUSH campaign artist of 2014. “I want people to feel surprised,” he concludes. “I want them to get something they didn’t expect. I want them to look forward to more too.”
