Hip-Hop | Kid Ink — Money and the Power

Posted by on June 2, 2013

This kid has been around for awhile, but honestly I was just never compelled enough by what I had heard of him on features to give him a full listen. Last week he released his major label debut in the form of a six-track EP, Almost Home, which features the likes of Wale, Meek Mill, Rico Love, and French Montana, and after seeing that his song “Money and the Power” was getting a fair amount of praise, I decided to check him out. This is by far my favorite song off the project — it has an incredibly upbeat, catchy, and pop-oriented beat produced by N4 and longtime collaborator Ned Cameron, and Kid Ink has enough lyrical chops and charisma to win me over. He also, unexpectedly, has a pretty good singing voice. Take a listen below, and if you’re interested, you can find his full EP on iTunes here.

Probably my favorite track off Webby’s debut EP, There Goes The Neighborhood, the Ninja takes his ’95 Altima to an abandoned building where he shows just what he does.  As the budget gets bigger, so do the videos.  Webby exercises his ability to deliver punch after punch while flowing with a purpose.

New joint from Kid Ink produced by Ned Cameron.  I’m speculating in saying this may be the first single off his debut album?  If not, the first official leak off his next mixtape.

This track dropped days ago, but I never got around to posting it.  Finally, Macklemore is getting recognition (in my book, a likely pick for one of XXL’s 2012 Freshman).  Here he joins Wale & Emelio Rojas on Tony Williams track, the first major collab I’ve seen from Macklemore.  While he held his own on this verse, hopefully we’ll see more coming from the Seattle star soon.

Mr. Dillard, aka Flo Rida hops on Rihanna’s infectious radio smash.  Shocking.  Appears Flo couldn’t resist giving the Calvin Harris beat a shot because it’s clearly not an official remix.
