J.I.D

On Sale Friday 6th Sept @ 10am

Born and raised in East Atlanta, J.I.D grew up on his parents’ collection of classic funk/soul LPs, and broke
onto the scene with his 2015 EP, DiCaprio . The EP saw him collaborating with hip-hop duo EarthGang,
whom he’d previously joined on a 2014 tour also including Bas and Ab-Soul. In 2016, J.I.D teamed up with
his fellow members of Spillage Village — an Atlanta rap collective featuring 6lack, EarthGang, Hollywood JB,
and Jordxn Bryant — and delivered an EP titled Bears Like This Too Much . Soon after signing to Dreamville
(Interscope Records), J.I.D made his major-label debut with the widely celebrated The Never Story and most
recently released DiCaprio 2 that received critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR and
more. In 2019, J.I.D continues his momentum as rap’s most exciting legends in the making with his stellar
contributions on Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers III compilation — which debuted at #1 on the
Billboard Top 200 charts. With its cinematic nature, it’s no surprise that J.I.D’s music is revered in the film
and television world — just this summer he joined Aloe Blacc on “Getting Started,” the official theme song
for “Hobbs & Shaw;” his track “151 Rum” appeared on HBO’s cult classic “Euphoria” TV show while
“Skrawberries” makes an appearance on EA Games’ NBA2K20 video game soundtrack. Known for his larger
than life presence on stage, J.I.D has sold out tours across the globe. This fall, J.I.D brings all this to life by
joining Logic on his “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” stadium tour.
