Star of Black Ink Crew (BIC) iAmCompton has his newest single “Westside” featured on the latest episode of BIC premiering on VH1 today. The tattoo artist and reality show cast member is known for his InkArtMusic moniker, and this taste of the music element is an exciting moment for fans of iAmCompton and BIC. Over a synth-heavy track iAmCompton flows with a stream of consciousness, a free-flowing glimpse into his artistic mind and how he interprets his experiences in his city.
iAmCompton built his reputation musically when his Rich Homie Quan collaboration, the Southern Cali themed “Turn it Up,” was featured on World Star HipHop and skyrocketed to over a million views in its first week. Now he’s back with an anthem to the west-side that sounds like two tracks in one as he reminisces then flips the beat on its head for the second half. As a a multi-talented creative who’s flexing all of his skills, this connection between his cast member life and his artist life is an exciting one!
