I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with one of RCA’s newest signees Kid Ink during his latest stop in Toronto. We conversed about the one song that made him fall in love with hip hop and also his favourite instrumental of all time that made him start out producing. We then went in a different direction and talked about what video game he left in his PS3 at the hotel before talking about his love for movies. He revealed that he would like Tristan Wilds to act out his life if Hollywood made a movie on his life and also discussed his ideas for a possible reality show. Ink was also apart of a recent campaign for PETA called “Ink Not Mink” and spoke on the importance of the topic. We also touched on his tattoos but unfortunately he has never been tatted by Kat Von D. Being in the studio with Pharrell recently, I asked him if he regrets any of his ink-work and would ever consider getting test-tube skin to cover anything up in the future…that was a no go. He also revealed the coolest person he’s ever smoked with, what song has the most play counts on his iTunes, embarrassing songs on his iPod, the weirdest encounter he’s had with a fanand that Diddy was the first person in the industry he was a little nervous to meet. - ThisIsWalder.com
