Robbie Bryant of KEG Media is an industry heavy hitter when it comes to creating some of the hottest renderings in the customization industry, but he’s also put together his own builds that have been featured in DUB and many other magazines. “We’ve built some of the most recognized trucks from SEMA shows over the past five years,” he says. “We currently have done more than 20 builds in that time and they have ranged from a 1960 Brookwood LS3 Power Wagon to a new Audi A5 and everything in between.”

Ludacris & DJ Infamous

Written by
Ludacris is no stranger to fine rides – after all, he has an ongoing role in The Fast and the Furious movie franchise, so he knows a few things about hot cars and mods. But these days, the hip-hop artist’s car game limited to a handful of rides instead of a massive fleet he used to flaunt. “I’ve evolved and don't want to be as flashy anymore,” the 37-year-old rapper admits. “There was a time when I had 10 cars and then realized that I’m gone on tour half the time so it doesn’t make sense to have them sitting in my damn garage.”

Kid Ink: Full Speed

Written by
Kid Ink is living life in Full Speed, which just also happens to be the name of his third album (the second on a major label). The self-proclaimed speed junkie likes to live in the fast lane and his latest rides reflect his inner speed demon. The rapper recently added a 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray and 2015 Lamborghini Huracan to his garage. And although both are impressive two-seaters anyone would want to have in their garage, it’s the Stingray that makes him want to push the pedal to the metal.


As his dream car growing up, Kid Ink always pictured himself behind the wheel of a Corvette and was finally able to make that dream come true recently. “I fell in love with the ’67 Stingray because it looked like the Batmobile to me,” the 28-year-old rapper declares. “The Corvette name is pure American muscle and it’s a car I’ve always wanted; it really makes a statement. I like being out of the box and that’s exactly what this car does for me.”



The Lamborghini Huracan is also an incredible beast of a machine in Kid Ink’s eyes and mentions that he likes to take it out when he wants to be more flashy, while the Corvette is all about raw speed. “I prefer the Corvette more when I want to go fast. The Huracan is more flashy and a status symbol that is just as fast, but I tend to be more careful driving it.”



Because the two are already automotive beauties straight from the factory, Kid Ink didn’t want to overdo it with modifications and entrusted his two rides to Roadstarr Motorsports to work some subtle magic. And since no new ride should be without some custom wheels, the 2015 Huracan’s wheels were powder coated gloss black, while the Stingray also received a gloss black set of 22” Forgiato Undice-C wheels outfitted in 245/35R22 front and 295/25R22 rear Nitto tires. They also added a red accent on the wheel cap, painted the inner barrel red and dressed the hood with a red and black stripe to contrast from the white paint.



But Kid Ink doesn’t mind getting additional mods on his Corvette later on. “I look at cars the way I look at shoes - sometimes you overwear them and you need to change it up with new editions, I’ll probably change up the paint later. I’ve always wanted my own Batmobile so look out for more Batman-related theme in the future.”



Aside from Corvette and Huracan, his garage houses the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade and a 1972 Chevy Nova which he has owned since high school and is currently being restored to its original glory. “It’s crazy to still have that car now,” the L.A.-born and raised lyricist says. “I'm almost 10 years deep with the car. I’ve had others since then, but I’ve never wanted to sell it even though people are always hitting me up to buy it.”



Another reason why he won’t sell his Nova is because it reminds him of where’s he’s been and how far he’s come. Like many others, he became interested in music in high school and would have fun with his friends freestyling, busting rhymes in rap battles and making mixtapes. While his crew all concentrated on rapping, Kid Ink figured someone needed to make the beats and got his start as a producer. It wasn’t until he was producing for well known artists like Nipsey Hussle that he knew he wanted to extend his talents. “I realized after joining others on their mixtapes and producing them that when it was open verse time and no one else was ready, I always had something to throw in and just went with it. Then after getting praise from other people and the fans, I felt it was the inspiration I needed to continue with it.” And the rest is history with Kid Ink who is now situated as one of hip-hop’s rising stars. While his previous album My Own Lane was all about him trying to find his own path in the industry, this new album shows his growth and confidence as an artist. “Full Speed is all about the lane I’m taking over,” he reveals. “You can hear how confident I am on this new album and I'm not really thinking about the pressure of the first one and who Kid Ink is. It was more about having fun, and I definitely had a lot with this album for sure, especially when putting features together.”



The album is filled with hot collaborations from the likes of Chris Brown, Usher, Tinashe, R. Kelly and DJ Mustard, making for cruise-worthy tracks and club bangers galore. According to Kid Ink, he really took his skills to new heights for the this album, getting more lyrical and grittier on tracks that people will vibe to in any occasion.



Even though Full Speed just came out, Kid Ink is already thinking about his next album and always has his imprint, The Alumni Music Group, at the back of his mind. It’s something he has to do if he ever wants to achieve his goal of becoming a household name. “I want to have Kanye West’s status – someone who doesn’t have to worry about staying relevant because they’re already a brand that people know about no matter what. I want to get to a point where Kid Ink is a household name and right now I have to lay the groundwork for that, so I have to keep on grinding.” And if he continues grinding at Full Speed, we’ll be sure that Kid Ink will be a brand that people know about no matter what!
