Kid Ink Enlists Chris Brown, Pusha T, & Elle Varner for ‘My Own Lane’

My Own Lane

Out with the old, in with the new. After heating up radio with his Chris Brown-assisted single “Show Me,” Kid Ink will kick off 2014 with his major label debut My Own Lane.

Due January 7, the 13 tracks include features from Pusha T, Elle Varner, MGK, August Alsina, Maejor Ali, and Brown, who appears twice.

The deluxe edition adds four including “Bad Ass” with Meek Mill and Wale and “Bossin’ Up” featuring A$AP Ferg.

My Own Lane is my struggle, because I came from a producer background and I listen to all kinds of different music and don’t really limit myself to what I do,” the L.A. rapper told Hot 93.7. “There’s so many different areas I’m pulling from, I have to just create my own lane.”

The album will be available for pre-order on December 17.

See the tracklisting below.

New Music: Justin Timberlake f/ J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, & Pusha T – ‘TKO (Black Friday Remix)’

Justin Timberlake

Lights out. In honor of Black Friday, Justin Timberlake delivers a one-two punch with the remix to his Timbaland-produced single “TKO.” The pop superstar recruits hip-hop heavy-hitters J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, and Pusha T, who show out with their vicious verses.

Cole kicks things off by responding to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse. “Everybody and they mama gassed/ Even my mama asked what I’ma do/ Decisions, decisions/ In case this is war then I’ll load up on all ammunition/ If a ni**a want problems my trigger’s on auto/ I’ll make sure that nobody miss ‘em,” he raps in the style of Drake’s “Versace” flow.

Pretty Flacko pops off on his verse, addressing the rumor mill and his love life, before King Push steps up to the mic. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper, who appeared on JT’s 2002 single “Like I Love You,” once again states his case for album of the year.

“All this album of the year talk/ Ni**as claimin’ they the best out/ I been hot since The Purple Tape and this Cuban’s poking my chest out,” he proclaims.

Who had the best verse? Re-up with round two below.

Pusha T and Pharrell

Pusha T pulled double duty on Thursday, appearing on two late-night shows. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for a performance. With help from Pharrell and some violinists, he killed the stage with “S.N.I.T.C.H.” off his debut My Name Is My Name.

Over on E!, King Push grabbed a seat on “Chelsea Lately,” where he showed off his fronts (“Grillz are the poverty versions of fronts”) and spoke about playing shows with Kanye West.

“It’s fun. He talks a lot. He rants and raves,” he said of his mentor.

Chelsea responded, “It’s like a girl. Do you like hanging out with girls who don’t shut the fuck up?”

“No,” laughed Pusha, adding, “You know I’m signed to his label, right?”

Catch his late-night takeover below.

Pusha T

G.O.O.D. Music joins forces with MMG in the powerful video for “Hold On.” Pusha T and Rick Ross provide hope for the streets in the motivational clip, which was shot by DRE Films in Hollywood, Florida. The rappers speak directly to young men in their community while reflecting on their drug dealing past.

“The concept of ‘Hold On’ is me and Ross performing in front of some neighborhood guys, lecturing and basically telling the people of the neighborhood—our peers, essentially—that we’re here for them and we’re doing this for them,” King Push told MTV News.

The Kanye West and Hudson Mohawke production appears on Pusha’s debut My Name Is My Name.
