J.I.D ft J.Cole “Off Deez”

By Emmanuel Louis-Charles



Atlanta native and Dreamville signee J.I.D has been making tons of noise over the past few years that has landed him on the XXL Freshman list with an incredible standout freestyle. Off this new crop of MC’s J.I.D is clearly the most lyrically able and he shows off his skill again along side Cole on “Off Deez”. Production surprisingly comes from Chasethemoney the orchestrator behind street acts like Valee and Z Money.  It’s great to hear such high level bars over grimy, booming production like this. Take a listen below.

Another one


Im officially addicted to J.I.D’s debut album The Never Story. This is the first project in a while to have multiple songs directly jump into my very wide rotation of music that I listen to on the daily. “Lauder” joins other hits like “8701”, “Hoodbooger” and “Never” that I cant stop bumping. Listen below.

The South got somethin to say


J.I.D only signed to J.Cole’s Dreamville imprint last month but he is wasting no time taking advantage of the light that has been shined on him by dropping his debut project on the label The Never Story. The Atlanta spitter has bars for days as well as some R&B vibes and follows many of the guidelines set by traditional hip hop. The album has production from J.Cole and features from fellow ATLiens EARTHGANG, and 6lack. Stream the project below.



Cole has released the date for his upcoming album “4 Your Eyez Only”. The dat Dec 9th dates the two year anniversary of his last classic release “2014 Forrest Hills Drive”. The 40 minute documentary of the same name has been released on Tidal and hold two videos for tracks on the upcoming project, this tracks being “Everybody Gotta Die” and “False Prophets(Be Like This)”. On these records Cole expresses his distaste for many of the younger generations rappers as well as provide commentary on the god Kanye’s mental space. Many publications have taken this as a diss but I listened to it as a commentary on how a hero to most all rappers has fallen from grace and needs help finding his way back. Peep the beginning of another classic Cole project below.
