Kid Ink

Wednesday, May 4th

As a teenager, Kid Ink began his music career by doing after-school music programs, so he could be make beats and produce tracks. His inspiration comes from his lead-way based upon his work ethic from producers such as Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, and Swizz Beatz. He said: “These were artists and producers who were writing for other people in all types of genres. It just gave me an open ear for all different types of music and that’s how I approached it.” Following years of working as a record producer, Ink began pursuing his career, as he begin rapping full-time at the age of 22. via artist wiki

Lando Chill finally drops Coroner

Monday, May 2nd

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you, your melancholy song of the summer.  Lando and his camp have been sitting on this one for a while, and to say we’ve been waiting to share it with the rest of you with eager anticipation is an understatement.  The track was conceived when producer Tom Johnson (aka Triceratops of the rap duo Headlock) gave Lando a beat.  A dreamy, blown out piano and hi hat hook, paired with Lando’s sing-songy style, create an anthem that speaks of loss and regret in our short attention span age of inter web speak.  Directed by Malcolm Critcher & shot by Symeon Platts of Mild West.
