One of the most anticipated releases this New Music Friday (August 26) has finally arrived. J.I.D has been a driving force for Dreamville, as the Atlanta emcee continues to earn the respect of artists who paved the way for Hip Hop. In what has been promoted as his most vulnerable project to date, J.I.D charters new territory with his latest record The Forever Story, and in a recent interview with Complex, he spoke candidly about the album.
"[My family] is basically a part of how I became who I am," he shared. "It gives inklings of why my [mindset] is a certain type of way. I gave more detail and in-depth stories [on this album], but there’s still more layers to be peeled back, which I am going to do because this is going to be a long process of trying to understand me."
Features include looks from 21 Savage, EarthGang, Ari Lennox, Kenny Mason, Lil Wayne, Lil Durk, and more. Stream The Forever Story and let us know what you think.
