Kid Ink Booking

Hip-Hop Artist

Kid Ink is covered in tattoos thus why his name is Kid Ink, and why he gets comparisons to other rappers covered in ink like Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. The rapper has gained a lot of attention on the internet, getting over 50 million views on YouTube, and having his tracts spread across blogs. It was after his hit “Time of Your Life”, that Kid Ink bookings hit an all-time high, and labels started to call to find out who this young 25 year old Los Angeles rapper is, and why they hadn’t signed him yet.

Kid Ink spent the beginning of his music industry career in production, producing hits for Diddy, Sean Kingston, and Nipsey Hussle. He started doing it because he had many friends already rapping, and he knew that they needed beats so he started to make it for his friends and it took off from there. Producing just wasn’t enough for him though, and he knew that he wanted to be at the forefront of the scene. People don’t really book producers for shows, they book the artist, so he knew what he had to do.

He started out creating melodies and hooks for the songs he would produce, and he slowly starting utilizing the opportunity to hone his songwriting skills. It was when he teamed up with DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar to form Tha Alumni Music Group that things started to take off, and his grind took another level. This started with the release of his first mixtate on the streets, “Crash Landing” which, started to heat things up for the young rapper. Off of this mixtape, promoters started to book Kid Ink all over the world from LA to Russia. Off of a mixtape, that is an impressive feat.

In true mixtape tradition, he began to collaborate with many artists, everyone from Gudda Gudda to Meek Mill, he used his connections and his hustle mentality to go out there   and create a movement for himself. He started to release al ot of videos which quickly gained views, and to date are at over 50 million views. Unbelievable!

In 2011 he released his 2nd mixtape Daydreamer on the internet, and it gained over 100,000 downoads on Datpiff, and featured some heavyweights on production like The Runner, Tha Bizness who produces for Lil Wayne, and the hard hitting Lex Luger. At this time, he was still doing everything independently with the Alumni Music Group, and was still out there shooting videos to promote the mixtapes. This is why the Kid Ink booking price went up, and people wanted him at their events.

He released the mixtape “Wheels Up”, and this one blew him up even further and had people asking “How Can I Book Kid Ink For My Show??”. He began to do shows in places like Denmark and Toronto, and he was turning into an international artist with the response he was getting from this mixtape.

It was 2012 that would propel Kid Ink to celebrity status, and have labels bidding over him. He released “Time Of Your Life” and the song had 20,000 downloads on I-Tunes, and was playing on radio stations throughout the U.S. The song was simply huge and took Kid Ink to another level. He released his first album “Up and Away” and the album broke onto the charts and hit #1 on Rap I-Tunes, and different labels began gunning for him. He eventually signed with RCA records and released his first single “Bad Ass” with Wale and Meek Mill. The song is already gaining a lot of traction, and people are sitting back and waiting for him to release his first major label album, so he can be booked for tours and concerts.

Kid Ink is definitely not only one of the hottest rappers on the West Coast, but one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. Let us help you book Kid Ink for your next event, and we’ll see how we can pack the venue out.
