This week, the ATL-bred stepped out with Dicaprio 2′s first single, “151 Rum.” Over mean production by Nice Rec and Christo, the “Lauder” rapper follows his winning formula of unloading a slew of head-scratching rhymes that cover a range of topics such as poverty, black on black crime, and clever metaphors for lyrical lovers.
“Son of a god, son of a bitch/Son of a woman and man, son of a son/And then sunk in abyss, summon a plant/Please come with a strip/Cover my back, cover mad/Please come with the bliss/Look at the stash, J.I.D like a magician/Fuck that, this some real ass shit/I paid blood for this/Taking cheese from the government/Cereal boxes, put the bugs in it/Hand me down then my brother brother shit,” raps J.I.D.
J.I.D. took to Instagram to announce the new single and provided a some background info on the song.
“This project isn’t like The Never Story or anything you heard from me before,” the Spillage Village rep said on Instagram. “It isn’t my GKMC or whatever else you are expecting it to be ‘headass’ lol. It’s not what I expected it to be, but I love it and I appreciate the journey it took me through to get me here.”
“Each song feels like an individual film to me,” he added. “Mac came thru and helped post produce and organize on almost every song on here. I worked on being a better writer, even outside of punchlines and shit. I can rap all fucking day, but I like writing songs and shit too. I really just challenged myself to becoming better, period. This album is for car rides, working out and smoke sessions (in cars) or wherever you wanna smoke that’s sonically friendly.”
Dicaprio 2 will follow The Never Story, which included bangers “EdEddandEddy,” “Never,” and “Underwear.” The 12-song effort, released in 2017, featured cameos from EarthGang and 6lack.
