Kid Ink Visits HOT 97 On 4/20
Kid Ink's latest album, Full Speed, dropped in early February, but one of the record's suprise hits, "Be Real", featuring Dej Loaf, is just starting to blow up. Today (4/20--a holiday Kid Ink thoroughly enjoys), the L.A. rapper stopped by HOT 97 to talk about his Mustard-produced hit-record with Dej, and how he had to convince his label to push the song. All along, before Dej had become a household name, he knew "this is the one".

Today, a video has arrived for the song, which was released as Full Speed's third official single last month.
