J.I.D.'s Baptize video looks will have you feelin' divine
Slowly but surely, the world has been getting to know J.I.D, the Atlantan that turned his back on a football scholarship to pursue music.
After working for years to develop a quickly shifting lyrical style that stood out in a sea of soundalike rappers, J.I.D went from living and studying in his Pontiac to being recognized by his label head J. Cole as “THE CLOSEST THING TO ME.”
Over the course of the years, they produced a string of highly musical and powerfully complex albums, reaching a new wave of critical acclaim with 2018's masterful DiCaprio 2.
The impressive record, with its distinctive contemporary production and guest spots from Cole, A$AP Ferg, and Method Man, is primed to give him an impulse to step up in the game. Listen to the best tracks of the artist and decide for yourself if you like it or love it in this #METCHAMixtape J.I.D. Edition here.
JID believes getting into the rap game earlier than the most artists was definitely to his advantage. “This is what’s lit about me,” he declared in a recent Complex interview. “I didn’t come to the game young as fu*k, where I could f*ck sh*t up. I came to the game with a sound mind… I’m making great decisions with my money… I can still f*ck with some money, and be crazy, ratchet and do all the fun shit, but at the same time I know how to make my shit triple up.”
As a rising star, he has a lot to say & show, and we're here to watch and appreciate it. In his last drop, he's next to Spillage Village & the Earthgang: the 2 musical collective he makes part of it. Tap the link below and discover those visuals that are be a sight to behold.
