featuring Chris Brown

My Own Lane

March 11th, 2014

Chris Brown and Kid Ink lay it out smooth like so: they know you know who they are, and they know you got a man back home but they don't know who he is so they don't care. They also know that you know that they know you wanna get to know them, so let's cut the chat and cut to the chase, shall we? Kid Ink's only got room in his car for two, so you better ditch your friends if you wanna go for a ride.

Did you know?

  • “Main Chick” has peaked at number 7 on the US Hot Rap Songs chart, number 13 on the UK R&B chart, number 16 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and number 60 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
  • The song was originally not going to be featured on the album, so it was included on Chris Brown's mixtape X-Files as a bonus track. It ended up receiving an extremely positive response from fans, making him reconsider the decision to include it on the album. Following the release of the track list for My Own Lane, it was confirmed that the song would be featured on Ink's second studio album after all.
  • Brian Todd Collins was born April 1, 1986 in Los Angeles, California and is best known by his stage name Kid Ink.
  • Kid Ink got his start in music as a teenager in after-school music programs making beats and learning about record production.
  • He was inspired by producers Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Swizz Beatz. He spoke of this saying: "These were artists and producers who were writing for other people in all types of genres. It just gave me an open ear for all different types of music and that's how I approached it."
  • Kid Ink has dozens of tattoos on his face, arms, hands and torso. He got his first tattoo when he was 16 and has been addicted to getting them since then. His favorites include portraits of his mother and grandfather tattooed on his chest and a tiger inked on the front of his neck, which represents his Chinese symbol.
