K.I.D.S. (Kickin' Incredibly Dope Shit) is the fourth mixtape by American rapper Mac Miller. It was released by Rostrum Records on August 13, 2010. Since its release, it has received over 1.1 million downloads and 1.5 million streams from its official host, DatPiff.[1] The title is a play on words, as an acronym for "Kickin' Incredibly Dope Shit" and a reference to the 1995 film Kids, which is quoted throughout the mixtape.[2][3]

Seven songs from 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 La", "Traffic In The Sky", and "Don't Mind If I Do".[4][5][6][7][8][9] The videos for "Nikes on My Feet" and "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza" were both heavily played on YouTube, reaching over 50 million views each. Both songs featured prominent classic hip-hop samples, from Q-Tip's remix of Nas' "The World Is Yours" and Lord Finesse's "Hip 2 Da Game", respectively. In July 2012, Finesse filed a $10 million lawsuit against Miller, Rostrum and DatPiff for use of the sample.[10] The lawsuit was settled out of court in December 2012, with its stipulations kept confidential.[11]

To support the mixtape, Miller embarked on his first tour in early 2011, the "Incredibly Dope Tour".[12] Miller sold out at every location on the tour.[13]

On August 13th, 2019, the 9th anniversary, it was announced that the mixtape would be coming to streaming services.[14]
