This album is Executive Produced by DJ ill Will. Ill Will adds:
"This time around we decided to make a project a little more fundamental at the mixtape core, we went a little less pop and focused more on the rapping side of things. I think Ink has proved himself as a great song writer already, this project was intended to prove he can move the streets and hip-hop heads as well."
Kid Ink adds:
"I challenged myself with this one; I think writing and making pop & R&B records comes really easy for me, but this time around I wanted to make a project that everyone can enjoy....not just the youngsters but the fans of true Hip-Hop, lyrics, spitters as well...without going too far left of what I normally do of course."

Dastardly Schemes, produced by Apatight (Professor Green, Jehst, Micall Parknsun) is the first in a series of free singles we'll be releasing over the coming weeks. This series of tracks, which we're calling The Lost Letters, were recorded for various projects - some pre-date our album Prolusion Plus, some were created more recently whilst working on our next full-length release - but all of them got "lost" somewhere along the line. None of these tracks will be appearing on our next album, but we like them too much for them to stay lost forever, so we want to share them with you.
