Kevin Rudolf Talks About ‘To The Sky’

Kevin Rudolf talks about collaborating with Lil Wayne in the studioKevin Rudolf just released his second album ‘To The Sky’ earlier this week. The Cash Money singer is joined on the album with appearances from Lil Wayne, Jay Sean, and Baby.

“Wayne was recording about a year ago and asked for some beats,” Kevin said about the Lil Wayne collaboration. “So I just whipped up something really quick and I sent him this record. Wayne got on it and sent me back the next day these verses. It was like 6 minutes. It was ridiculous. It was some of the best Wayne I’d ever heard. It was incredible. So I build the record around that. I already had the hook and he came up with the ‘Spit in Your Face’, and it came time to make a track list for my album, so I asked Wayne and he said yeah man, use it. To me that was a great gift. One of my favorite records. I’ve been wanting people to really hear this song for so long. I know it’s ridiculous. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”

Check out behind-the-scenes footage where he talks about the album process, living in Los Angeles, keeping a Flo-Rida song for himself, working with Lil Wayne on ‘Spit in Your Face’ and more.

Showbiz Shelly of B96 in Chicago caught up with Kevin Rudolf at the station’s Jingle Bash, where he talked about the huge success of ‘Let It Rock’, getting Lil Wayne on the track, the next single ‘Welcome To The World’ with Rick Ross, the diverse sound of his debut album ‘In The City’, how he got into music, having an afterparty at Crobar, what to expect from his shows, and some Christmas favorites.

On how he follows up ‘Let It Rock’, Kevin said, “The next single is called ‘Welcome To The World’, it’s featuring Rick Ross. It’s another record if you love ‘Let It Rock’, it’s another record like that. It’s a club banger. It’s a great rock record, pop record. It’s in the same vein. The album is called ‘In The City’ and it’s really diverse. It’s really musical. Nas is on the album on a song called ‘NYC’, Rick Ross obviously is on it. Wayne is on it, so it’s just something different. One thing I do is try to make music that has substance to it. I try to say something in the lyrics, not just make club records to make club records.”

On his youth, Kevin said, “I grew up in New York City, which is sort of tied into the album ‘In The City’. I live in Miami. (My mom) would take me to clubs when I was a kid. She was always doing her thing. She was in some bands and stuff, didn’t really make it past that level, but I definitely picked up guitar playing and just being around the environment from an early age with songwriting and developing an ear for it.”
