Toronto, ON – Walder (@ThisIsWalderCom) recently sat down with one of RCA’s newest signees Kid Ink (@Kid_Ink) during his latest stop in Toronto.
The two 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 producing. They 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. They also spoke on the important of the recent campaign Ink did for PETA called “Ink Not Mink,” and much more.
Expect new music from Kid Ink this summer as he plans to revisit some old music with fresh new features just as he did with “Bad Ass.” Be on the lookout for his major label debut project Almost Home dropping May 28th. Watch the full interview below.
Toronto, ON – Two night’s ago Twitter went into a frenzy as Drake’s camp released information regarding the 4th annual OVO Fest. Since it’s first year, OVO Fest has brought so many amazing artists and surprise guests to the stage at Molson Amphitheatre. And this year is no different. Usually, OVO Fest is only 1-day show but this year it’s a 2-day affair that begins on August 4th with performances by two very talented singers, Frank Ocean and James Blake and August 5th will feature Drake and some special guests who haven’t been announced yet. Any guesses to who those surprise guests will be? I have some ideas but every year I’m shocked by the artists that Drake brings to the city. Tickets go on sale May 24th at 10:00AM via Live Nation and prices begin at $49.50. Check out the official flyer after the jump and let us know who you think the other performers will be.
