Kid Ink "Alive" a massive comeback project.
A couple of years ago, I went to see Kid Ink performing at Vicar Street, Dublin Ireland in what I would describe as a fully lit and mind blowing gig experience, I was thrilled with his performance on that evening, he had dope punch lines, flowing bars and the crowd were having a good time.
Kid Ink is one of the Hip Hop MCs I respect a lot and value their music, the Los Angeles rapper released the "Alive" album on Friday 9 April with features from Rory Fresco, Bricc Baby and ISM.
With this project, Kid Ink is reaffirming his relevance in the Hip Hop and R&B music scene, the hitmaker that he is, under his belts, he has numbers of hit single tunes that cut across the globe and ended up on the music charts top spot.
The America rapper and record producer is widely renowned for his major hits such as "Show Me", "Iz U" and "Main Chick" featuring Chris Brown which were all taken out of his 2014 "My Own Lane" album, "Body Language" was a major hit when it dropped in 2015, alongside "Be Real" featuring Dej Loaf, both tracks taken out of his 2015 "Full Speed" album and let's not forget the 2017's smashing single "F With You"
His latest album "Alive" 41 minutes duration, is a 10 track album plus 3 bonus tracks, starting with the song "New New" which embraces the Kid Ink energetic punchlines on bumpy urban beats, there couldn't have been a better song to usher the listeners into this album, then followed by "Night & Day" and "Red Light" both club focused summerish anthems, and from then onwards the album listening experience just feels well ordered, the vocal performance is on point, the song sequencing and the production is great and more importantly the album is entertaining.
This is a very good comeback album for Kid Ink , first album in six years, I'm not disappointed with this project.
"Red Light" having been previously released as a single in March and with the visuals out on Youtube, will probably get most of the buzz on this album, it's a radio friendly track and would also work well as a dance floor filler in Hip Hop and R&B clubs.
