Kid Ink’s ‘My Own Lane’ – “It’s A Rare Rap Album, You Don’t Need To Skip Any Songs”
Following the success of his promotional singles “Show Me” and the recently released “Iz U Down”, West Coast rapper Kid Ink provides us with the full package on his second studio album “My Own Lane”. Today, the man himself gives us five reasons why this record is essential to your dose of 2014 hip hop!
1. No Skippables
It’s a rare rap album, nowadays in which you don’t need to skip any songs. Basically reminiscent of the old cassette tape days where you could let a whole album ride.
2. The Dopest Features
The album includes dope features from usual collaborators such as MGK, Chris Brown, King Los, Tyga. As well as unexpected features from the likes of Elle Varner, August Alsina & Pusha T.
3. The Perfect Mix of Mainstream & Hip Hop
It has a mainstream feel with a core hip hop foundation balanced throughout. Basically you can enjoy the “songs” and still get the “rap” aspect which is rarely if ever bridged well by mainstream rap artists with the exception of T.I. or the old Nelly.
4. West Coast Rap With A Difference
This project shows the “West Coast” or LA artist perspective differently than any major retail project since early Warren G. Where a rapper can be from the streets of LA but still make great mainstream respected music without gang-banging or following the stereotypes of West Coast rappers.
5. Nothing But The Real Deal
My core fans will appreciate this project because I didn’t “CHANGE” my sound or style of music after signing a deal and having a hit record like “Show Me.” RCA allowed us to continue to make the type of music we wanted to but still try to expand it and make it bigger with tools they offered which we didn’t have while we were Indie.
