Favorite Quotes from Kid Ink
“I try to be true to myself yet still at the same time look at comments and look at what the fans have to say and kind of put it in perspective. I’m never someone whose not open for opinion, I’m always just down to make it work and see how we can do things but at the end of the day I always want to make sure it represents me. It’s really about just being humble and not selling yourself on being there already.” – Kid Ink
“I think people think that labels can get you features more than you can get your own. I just don’t work like that.” – Kid Ink
“I’m going to be a singer. So I’m able to use that when I write. I’m actually playing the beat with my voice. Instead of thinking about coming up with melodies, it’s like filling in the instruments. So sometimes it’s better to have beaten with fewer melodies in them because then I can play more with my vocals.” – Kid Ink
“I still let myself be a fan of music and that motivates me to want to be better than certain people or just getting the same love. Nothing is new under the sun so you can’t be afraid to take things from others and try to flip them and make them your own at the end of the day.” – Kid Ink
“I love hitting the stage and I don’t think I could trade that for sitting in the basement making beats.” – Kid Ink
