J.I.D fulfilled a personal milestone this week after inking a record deal with J.Cole’s Dreamville Records. Before the ink dried on the Atlanta native’s contract, the newest edition to Cole’s dream team released the visuals to his single, “Never.”
Yesterday (Feb. 22), the 25-year-old emcee stopped by DJ Tony Touch’s Shade 45 to drop some verses over a classic OutKast song. With Kast’s “Elevators (Me and You)” thumping in J’s headphones, the rookie spitter raps with an animated flow: “Anything to get this cheddar/And step my bread up/Socrates, ni**a I can charge by the letter/She like, ‘J.I.D.,’ you been that ni**a’/You know it’s a set up/Shorty was like a fat psychic, a fortune teller.”
J.I.D. is joining a team of highly talented emcees with the likes of Lute, Bas, Cozz, Omen, and singer Ari Lennox. Oh yeah, and some wack rapper by the name of J. Cole is also on Dreamville.
The rapper’s debut project, The Never Story is slated to arrive on March 3.
