Today has seen some pretty sweet jams come out (and a few meh moments). But, J.I.D.'s debut, The Never Story, falls into the category of pretty sweet tuneage. The recent Dreamville signee comes correct on this one.
Featuring tracks like "D/vision" (featured on SOTB earlier this month), "EdEddnEddy," the boombap/jazz rap-heavy "Somebody," and the 6LACK-aided "8701," this is a rare debut in some ways. It lives up to the hype that came with J.I.D. getting signed by Dreamville, but still gives us a glimpse as to what's to come for the artist. Bars on top of bars on timely instrumentals that still feel timeless in some ways (mainly because of their ride-heavy feel). Check it out below and support dope music whenever and wherever it resides.
