Kid Ink cruises past all boundaries. The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer can seamlessly slip from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets. There’s absolutely nobody quite like the tattooed from head-to-toe impresario, and that’s the first thing you’ll notice when you take his full-length debut, My Own Lane [Tha Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA Records], for a spin.
Grinding as a producer since the age of 16, he uncovered this creative highway by perfecting a personal style behind the board first. His production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hu$$le, and more. That experience in the studio set the stage for him to become the versatile and vibrant force he is today.
He officially started twisting the game up when he dropped his 2012 independent album, Up & Away, which spawned his mainstream breakthrough song “Time Of Your Life.” He covered XXL Magazine as part of that year’s “Freshman Class,” while the album smashed an iTunes record by debuting in the Top 5 of the Hip-Hop Albums chart prior to release and minus any traditional promotion. Cumulative single sales from the effort exceed over 500K, while it landed at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 20K copies first-week. Piping hot from the indie success, he inked a deal with Tha Alumini Group/88 Classic/RCA Records in 2013, dropping the acclaimed Almost Home EP that same year. However, everything simply laid the foundation for My Own Lane.

Host Deardra Shuler talks to Charles Bobbit, James Brown friend and manager. Bobbit will talk about his rags to riches story with Deardra. Bobbit also managed Michael Jackson and was the personal advisor to President Omar Bongo of Gabon. Born in 1930, in the back woods of North Carolina, Charles was whisked to Brooklyn, NY by his eldest sister after the loss of his mother to cancer. During his young adult years, he worked as a porter. He later worked for the New York City Transit Authority, laying rails at night. Later he deemed the entertainment industry was an escape from menial labor, although he could neither sing nor dance.
Mr. Bobbit’s first introduction to the realization of his dream was when he first saw Mr. James Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” perform at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY. He was awestruck and proclaimed to his wife that he would one day work as Brown’s Personal Manager. Although thwarted originally, by 1965, he won a job as James Brown's valet and later became Brown's friend and manager up to the day Brown died. The book, "Making it Happen," tells Brown and Bobbitt's story. It was Mr Bobbit who gave James Brown the title, “Godfather of Soul.” Bobbit was instrumental in the arrangement of “Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” and the musical scores for the movie, “Black Caesar,” starring Fred Williamson. Bobbit met President Omar Bongo of Gabon and worked with Bongo's son cutting a few albums. The family hired Bobbit as their advisor taking Bobbit to heights that he couldn’t even imagine. He later worked with Michael Jackson becoming his friend and confidante.
When Alex Snydman first visited "Hybrid Jazz", he was ecstatic about the response that "Fortunate Action" was receiving. And he had every reason to be excited! Even those who don't praise easily were disarmed. Here's this gifted guitarist-turned-drummer who felt the music to his core. Beautifully written songs and a kind of synergy on the album that is only achieved after MANY albums, usually. Critics are still falling in love - and it has been a while since the project dropped. Last year :)
Alex is returned to the show so that we can pump up some very cool East Coast stops. He had spent incredible years in Massachusetts - and played in New York - but he's based in the Los Angeles area now. In order to complete his studies. For him to "come home" is a big deal! For you to see him? Even bigger. What he offers in the way of warmth and artistry in his performances is something that you don't want to miss.
"Fortunate Action", by the way, has meaning. Paraphrasing Alex, the use of the words represent thepositive ripples that multiply when we listen to our inner voice. He'll be happy to explain that more! As his friend and mentor, Eric Harland, says: "Alex embodies the spirit that we call love." And love cannot be anything but positive. Hey, it's gonna be THAT kind of show! Hah! We truly had a great time when we first met - WHILE we were speaking during "Hybrid Jazz" - and we both expect that good vibe to deja vu you this time as well.
You'll hear tracks from the CD, to be sure. One of the beautiful asides of this project is knowing that Alex, besides composing himself, graciously gave all three of his pianists space for their songs, too. You'll FEEL the gratitude!
Please join us on 7/29 - you are promised rejuvenation!
