The Los Angeles, California rapper Kid Ink has just announced that he has signed to RCA Records. With the release of his new single “Bad Ass” featuring Wale and Meek Mill, Kid Ink released a statement saying “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,”.
“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,” added J. Grand, SVP of A&R and Marketing. “We see him not just as an emerging domestic star but as someone whose music and entrepreneurship is already developing a global presence.”
Kid Ink has built up his rep in the mixtape circuit dropping project after project including 2010’s Crash Landing, 2011’s Daydreamer and Wheels Up. This past June he put out his debut independent album Up & Away that debuted at No. 20 on the charts.
