Following his huge UK tour last year, Kid Ink has announced his highly anticipated return to the UK in October, in celebration of his critically acclaimed new album "Full Speed."

The L.A. rapper has six shows in Bristol, Southampton, Birmingham,Glasgow, Manchester and London.

The rapper, producer and performer seamlessly slips from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets.

"Full Speed," was released in February, and features guest appearances from Chris Brown, Migos, Tinashe and Usher. It hit #1 on The Billboard Top Rap Album chart and spawned the hits "Body Language," and "Hotel," and his new single "Be Real," featuring DeJ Loaf.

A producer since the age of 16, he perfected a personal style behind the board first'; his production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hussle, and many more.

In 2013 he signed to Tha Alumini Group/88 Classic/RCA Records and in the same year dropped the acclaimed "Almost Home," EP. He released his second studio album "My Own Lane," last year. The album solidified him as an artist preserving his independent identity, and combined appearances from the expansive underground LA Scene – King Los, Maejor Ali and Tyga, to artists like Pusha T and A$AP Ferg.
