Rising West Coast rap star Kid Ink continues to take over 2014. With over one million sales, his smash single “Show Me” featuring Chris Brown has officially been certified Platinum by RIAA as it enters its second week at #1 on Urban Mainstream radio.
Kid Ink continues to shine on the stage as well as on the charts and has added 8 new tour dates to his “My Own Lane” North American tour presented by Live Nation’s “Ones to Watch” concert series with Skype. Kicking off April 1st at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom, joining Ink on tour is Baltimore rapper King Los and Miami MC Bizzy Crook.
