[CONTEST] Win Tickets To See Kid Ink :: May 1

[CONTEST] Win Tickets To See Kid Ink :: May 1

When Kid Ink first dropped his independent album Up & Away in 2012, he showed promise being featured on XXL‘s Freshman Class that same year. The album broke an iTunes record by being featured in the Top 5 of Hip Hop Albums chart before it was even released and without any traditional promotion. The album landed the #20 spot on the Billboard Top 200 and Kid Ink went on to sign with Tha Alumni/88 Classic/RCA Records. This all led to the release of his 2014 sophomore album My Own Lane featuring Show Me as the album’s first single.

You can win a pair of tickets to see Kid Ink perform at Phoenix Concert Theatre on May 1st courtesy of the good people at Live Nation. All you have to do is follow @BadPermDotCom on Twitter and retweet us whenever we mention @LiveNationON using the hashtag #KidInkToronto. A random winner will be drawn from the pool of retweets. Contest closes April 25th at 6PM.

*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 is the first thing you will 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,” 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.”

He officially started twisting the game up when he dropped his 2012 independent album, Up & Away. He covered XXL Magazine as part of that year’s “Freshman Class”, while the album smashed an iTunes record by debuting in the Top 5 of the Hip-Hop Albums chart prior to release and minus any traditional promotion. Cumulative single sales from the effort exceed over 500K, while it landed at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 20K copes first-week. Piping hot from the indie success, he inked a deal with Tha Alumini Group/88 Classic/RCA Records in 2013, dropping the acclaimed Almost Home EP that same year. However, everything simply laid the foundation for My Own Lane.

The single “Iz U Down” [featuring Tyga] swings from a bombastic beat into a sultry and slick refrain. Ink and Tyga go toe-to-toe with fiery verses, unleashing a massive banger in the process.

“It had that original Kid Ink vibe, but it was something everyone could rock with on radio or in the clubs,” he goes on. “It fit the moment. Tyga was in the same studio the night I had the record, and he felt it. Lyrically, it was about girls having fun with other girls—whether they’re in the club dancing together or whatever. That’s the point when parties usually get fun. It shows another side.”

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 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 too. “I want people to feel surprised,” he concludes. “I want them to get something they don’t expect. I want them to look forward to more too.”

Get ready to ride down Kid Ink’s Lane.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
