Kid Ink Signs To RCA Records

Ink RCA

Hard works pays off and today it was announced that the rising star from L.A. officially let the ink dry over at RCA Records. Congrats! Says the Kid:

“We achieved so much last year independently but we just felt it was time to team up with a major in 2013 to take it to the next level and RCA is as excited as we are about the vision and possibilities.”

The SVP of A&R and Marketing J. Grand adds:

“I’m ecstatic to have someone as multi-talented as Kid Ink, along with the backing of Tha Alumni team with us at RCA Records. We see him not just as an emerging domestic star but as someone whose music and entrepreneurship is already developing a global presence.”

Below is the official release of his single “Bad Ass” now featuring Wale and Meek Mill and originally off his recent release, Rocketshipshawty .

    im happy for him..but at the same time i dont see him making it “mainstream”. hes just not original enough: tatted every where is getting old, hes not great lyrically, and smoker songs are starting to get old too. hes gona have to switch it up.

  • fsl4lfe

    @Batman So basically he’s a newer Wiz Khalifa, for some reason I think he’ll appeal..

  • JustMyOpinion

    I wish him the best of luck and I hope he reaches HIS definition of success.

    ^ I know-I know y’all can’t believe someone actually said that on RR. New year, lets be optimistic for rappers.

  • Faded

    @fsl4lfe lol yes basically. just totally different styles, he brought in a more “west coast” style in his music he would be allt better

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    any rappers out there wanna collab with me on this track ?
    if your not a rapper , take 2 mins out your time and check the song out anyways.
    let me know what ya think. thanks

    He’s had a handful of songs on these mixtapes over the last while that I thought would be hits if they had the major label machine behind them. But I don’t get that star presence from Kid Ink.

    Whew, I’m so relieved he signed. There is nothing else that looks or sounds like him on the market at all. This is just what the game needed.
