K.I.D.S. is the fourth mixtape by the American rapper Mac Miller. It was released by Rostrum Records on August 13, 2010. Since its release, it has been viewed over 2,200,000 times, downloaded over 800,000 times, and streamed over 550,000 times from the official host of the mixtape, DatPiff.com. The title of K.I.D.S. is a play on words, as it as an acronym that stands for "Kickin' Incredibly Dope Shit", while at the same time a reference to the 1995 film Kids, which is quoted throughout the mixtape.

Seven of the songs in K.I.D.S. had music videos created for them: "Nikes On My Feet", "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza", "Knock Knock", "Senior Skip Day", "La La La", "Traffic In The Sky", and "Don't Mind If I Do".[1][2][3][4][5][6] The videos for "Nikes on My Feet" and "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza" were both heavily played on YouTube, reaching over 23.5 million views each. Both songs featured prominent classic hip-hop samples, sampling Nas' "The World Is Yours" and Lord Finesse's "Hip 2 Da Game", respectively.

To support the mixtape, Mac Miller embarked on his first tour, the "Incredibly Dope Tour". Miller sold out at every location on the tour.[7][8][9]

The mixtape features one guest artist, Chevy Woods.
