It's too easy to simply label Kid Ink and his style as the products of today's radio-friendly, pop rap influence, especially after listening to his sophomore studio LP, My Own Lane, the follow up to his Up & Away debut. Much of My Own Lane are the typical musings of a young hip hop rebel, but Kid Ink has solid skills even if they are used to spit primarily about chicks, money, the gangsta life, striving, and pushing forward in life. He has obvious chemistry with his guest artists, which makes the album that much more interesting. Ultimately, he has created a respectable enough collection of songs here. It would have benefited from more individual identity from Ink himself, but otherwise, My Own Lane is a catchy rap album that manages to not sell out.
