    Still riding the success of his current single “Hotel”, Kid Ink is now shifting his focus onto his next and 3rd single, "Be Real", off his recently-released sophomore album Full Speed. The Dej Loaf-featured record took off immediately after first being heard on February 3rd and quickly became a fan favorite, so it's only fitting that a music video is now to follow.

    Kid Ink's sophomore effort hit the Billboard 200 this week, although it didn't perform quite as well as his debut My Own Lane. My Own Lane pushed 50,000 copies out opening week, which was deemed a strong release, especially for an independently-signed rapper's debut. However, Full Speed moved less than 40k opening week. The album itself is exactly what you expect to hear from Ink, with a lot of radio potential, and top tier features. So what's lacking here? Perhaps once one of his many singles takes off it'll translate into a sales boost.
