Pop Songs Are Cool, But Kid Ink's Excited To Perform 'More Rap Records' On Tour

The Los Angeles rappers teases his upcoming My Own Lane Tour to MTV News.

Kid Ink kicked off the year by releasing his major-label debut, and now the Los Angeles MC is ready to take the show on the road.

On April 1, Ink will launch his My Own Lane Tour in Vancouver, with Bad Boy spitter King Los and Miami-based up-and-comer Bizzy Crook as tourmates.

"Me and Los have worked together since 2010, so I know my fans already appreciate him. So adding him to the bill was a no-brainer," Ink told MTV News on Friday (February 21) via phone. "As for Bizzy, DJ Ill Will kinda put me up on his underground wave and following. We wanted to bring along some new blood that would complement myself and Los to make an entire package that can be enjoyed from doors opening to doors closing."

Ink promises a high-energy show from start to finish, and his current pop single, "Show Me" with Chris Brown, is sure to be a highlight. But Ink said he's looking forward to flexing more of his rap skills.

"I am personally excited to do some of the more rap records with my core fans, like 'Murda,' 'Movement,' 'No Options,' etcetera," he said. "There is nothing like the feeling of a whole building rapping alongside you, word for word, a song that has never touched the radio or television."
