Kid Ink and Tha Alumni have officially inked a major label deal with RCA records.

“We achieved so much last year independently but we just felt it was time to team up with a major in 2013 to take it to the next level and RCA is as excited as we are about the vision and possibilities.”

The SVP of A&R and Marketing J. Grand had this to say:

“I’m ecstatic to have someone as multi-talented as Kid Ink, along with the backing of Tha Alumni team with us at RCA Records. We see him not just as an emerging domestic
star but as someone whose music and entrepreneurship is already developing a global presence.”

To celebrate the deal Kid Ink decides to release his Meek Mill and Wale assisted track “Bad Ass” as an official single. The song originally appeared on his recent Rocketshipshawty mixtape.
