With a brand new album to kick off 2014, Kid Ink goes from Do It Yourself indie to major label artist.
Much like his rap contemporaries - Tyga, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar - Kid Ink released a series of well received mixtapes that helped propel him out of the underground. In 2012, XXL Magazine featured Kid Ink as part of their "Freshman Class" alongside Macklemore, Hopsin, and Future. On January 4, 2013, Kid Ink announced he signed with major label RCA. In January of 2014, RCA released My Own Lane. The album features several collaborations, including the Chris Brown assisted single "Show Me." The song has earned Kid Ink his first Gold plaque for sales of over 500,000 and has peaked at #17 on the Billbaord Hot 100 chart. Kid Ink is definitely doing it major!
Our What's In My Bag? crew caught up with Kid Ink on a recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood. He grabs a copy of the Batman Anthology on DVD. This is definitely a must have for all Batman fans, especially those who grew up in the '90s! He also finds a couple of iconic posters of Notorious B.I.G. and Bob Marley. See which Adventure Time vinyl figures he finds and what album Kid Ink says is the best ever.
