If IDK’s forthcoming album, Is He Real, isn’t on your list of most anticipated albums, you clearly haven’t been paying attention. The Maryland-based emcee has been steadily releasing some of the best hip-hop around,  and it’s only a matter of time until he starts to get the attention he deserves. If his new effort, the first since releasing his IDK & FRIENDS 🙂 EP, is any indication, it’s only a matter of time.

Hungry, agitated, and ready to take on anyone who stands in his way, IDK kicks the door in waving two .44s on his new, video-assisted effort, “Trigger Happy.” Living up to the title, the Maryland emcee takes aim at the industry politics and bullshit, with a bullet-proof, razor-sharp flow and the brash, fiery energy to match.

While playing Chess in the visuals(a fitting allegory), IDK makes it clear he’s not afraid to take on anyone with lines like, “This is me saying none of you bigger artists can cock-block shit,” and calling one out by name (Logic) to let the rest know he’s not playing around.

No word on a specific release date for Is He Real as of yet, but the album, and Iinevitableable stardom seem imminent.
