Kid InkUp & Away
"Up & Away", his official debut, suggests the talented Kid Ink isn’t such a calculated hit maker but a huge fan of what’s poppin’ in 2012, and that means a bit of emo, a lot of ambition and productions that hypnotize and swirl, even when they come with G-Unit styled names like “Walk In The Club.”
Ink is connected to the fan base more than the game, plus he’s got a rare humbleness between all his boasting and swagger. But the reason to sign on with this exciting debut is a toss up between “Time Of Your Life “ (a prime pre-club track for ladies) and “Lost In The Sauce” (with silly, fun lyrics and a bleepy, booming production, it’s like new wave heroes Devo meet Deebo from the Friday movie). This is what “the kids” want these days - good times and a fun album.
