Kid Ink Shows Out at TLA

Los Angeles based rapper, Kid Ink took to the stage this past Tuesday at The Theatre of Living Arts. TLA is one of 12 venues that he has appeared in over the past month as a part of his My Own Lane Tour.

The night’s festivities opened with performances by Bizzy Crook followed by King Los. The fellow artists have been opening for Kid throughout the tour and on this night they once again served as nice appetizer to the main course.

After about an hour and a half into the show Kid Ink finally hit the stage and received a warm, roaring welcome as the audience snapped pictures and shot videos with their camera phones.

His entrance began with a 30 second soundbite followed by a video presentation in the background and it took no time before the RCA records recording artist had the crowd jumping. Ink performed a great balance of hits from his first album Up & Away including “Hell & Back” among other tracks, while also adding singles from his mixtape Rocketshipshawty like “Bada**“.

In between Kid’s old and newer tracks, there was a brief cameo from one of Philadelphia’s own, Freeway, performing an old Rockefeller Records classic, “What We Do“.

In the end, Kid Ink saved the best for last as he performed tracks that have made it all over local radio stations in recent months, including “Show Me” and “Main Chick“. The crowd’s enthusiasm reached their peak while these songs were performed. Kid Ink even tweeted about the Philadelphia audience before his Wednesday show in Cleveland.

All in all, great show by Kid Ink an emerging artist in today’s rap game. His heavily attended show marks the halfway point to his tour that will conclude on May 31st at Bogart’s in Cincinnati, OH.
