Off Deez – [J.I.D.] ft. [J. Cole]

Fresh off of the release of his highly-anticipated new album, DiCaprio 2, J.I.D. is at the top of rap headlines right now, as his latest full-length effort will certainly claim a spot in the best projects of 2018. Today, the Dreamville signee is back to keep the wins coming, this time dropping off a brand new visual for DiCaprio 2-standout, “Off Deez”, alongside J. Cole. Directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s own, Cole Bennett, this video finds each of the two rappers in a world of ominous color that perfectly fits their flamethrowing flows and undeniable chemistry. The world of creative animation from Bennett only adds to the excitement of this release, and needless to say, it’s one my favorite visuals to come out in recent months, even featuring a quick cameo from Joey Bada$$. Watch the new video for  “Off Deez” below and if you haven’t already, check out DiCaprio 2 here!

Off Deez – [J.I.D] ft [J. Cole]

Cole and is given a new life today as the duo teams up with Lyrical’s very own Cole Bennett for a mind boggling visual. J.I.D and J. Cole flow effortlessly over the ChaseTheMoney produced beat as Cole gives the video a dark image with vibrant animations.

DiCaprio 2 – [J.I.D]

J.I.D has been a favorite at Lyrical Lemonade for quite some time now, and he just blessed us with his brand new album titled “DiCaprio 2”. There is a total of fourteen (if you count the bonus) new tracks provided on this project and after streaming through this tape a few times through I was extremely impressive with the final product. There was plenty of moments while listening to this project that I just closed my eyes and got lost in J.I.D’s hypnotic and at often times overwhelming (in a good way) verses, plus all of the skits provided made it feel more like a good movie and not just a good album. J.I.D was undoubtedly the shining factor here but the features on this project made it that much better thanks to the likes of A$AP Ferg, J. Cole, 6LACK, Ella Mai, BJ The Chicago Kid, Method Man and last but not least, Joey Bada$$.  Stream this brand new album below and if you like it be sure to give J.I.D a follow on Twitter here!

The Dreamville MC has released two singles from the upcoming album, “Off Deez” featuring J.

Watch the new album trailer below for DiCaprio 2 and tell us what you think and how excited you are for the J.I.D’s highly anticipated follow up!

Off Deez – [J.I.D] x [J. Cole]

J.I.D is a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade and so is Dreamville leader J. Cole, so when I saw that they hooked up on a new track I stopped everything I was doing & gave it my upmost attention. As if this record couldn’t look any more appetizing the ChaseTheMoney production credit guaranteed that it was going to be a hit, but after listening to this one several times through I was truly stunned at just how well it turned out, it exceeded my already high standing expectations. To hear any artist out spit like this is just something you don’t see everyday, the way that they switched the pace of their flows back and forth throughout this track was very impressive, furthermore solidifying both of them as top tier emcees in the game. Stream this brand new offering below and if you like it be sure to follow J.I.D on Spotify & get in tune with his movement, I am sure this is not the last time we will hear about this song.

151 Rum – [J.I.D]

Since signing to Dreamville and dropping his breakthrough project ‘The Never Story’ just last year, J.I.D’s come-up in the rap game has been no small feat. Stakes are high for the for the 27-year-old rapper as he preps to drop his next mixtape, ‘DiCaprio 2’, and J.I.D gave listeners a peek of what to expect with a new single titled “151 Rum” today. Over a menacing beat held down by an eerie vocal sample that gives the whole track an ominous vibe, J.I.D fills every bar with masterful wordplay and surgical precision in his rhyme schemes. Whether he’s repping his East Atlanta home or asserting his legitimacy as a killer emcee, he comes off as laser-focused and in his element. Mind moving at a million miles per hour, J.I.D doesn’t make it easy for a listener to keep up with his thought process, but he does give you something to turn up to regardless. As he was reportedly set to open for Mac Miller, who also worked on the production for this project, ‘DiCaprio 2’ is shaping up to be a special release from the talented lyricist, and one you won’t want to miss out on when it drops.

No Sleep vol.1 – [Trill Sammy]

Houston product Trill Sammy makes his way back to the spotlight today with the release of his brand new EP titled, No Sleep vol.1. Following its predecessor in Sorry 4 The Sleep from December of 2016, the 20-year-old has been on a steady climb up the ranks since then and it shows in this new project including an all-star feature list with Moneybagg Yo, Offset, NBA Youngboy, Slim Jxmmi and XXL Freshman J.I.D. who appears on the closer and undisputed standout, Paranoid. After releasing a trio of singles prior to the tape, there was never really any doubt that No Sleep would be stacked with more Trill Sammy music for us to enjoy and it’s safe to say he delivered with that. Do yourself a favor and let loose Trill Sammy’s No Sleep Vol.1 out of the cage and leave a comment on which tracks you’re rocking with the most!

XXL Unveils 2018 Freshman Class Cover

It’s that time of year again: XXL just rolled out the official announcement of their coveted 2018 Freshman Class, complete with this year’s magazine cover photo. After ongoing speculation over who would make the cut, the final list consists of Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, J.I.D, Stefflon Don, BlocBoy JB, YBN Nahmir, Wifisfuneral and Trippie Redd. Always a point of debate in hip-hop, the lead-up to this year’s list garnered more controversy than usual, specifically over XXL’s voting process. The impact of that controversy becomes apparent just by looking at this year’s cover photo: while 10 rappers usually are featured, Lil Skies, who occupies the list’s 10th spot, declined to be photographed. Along with Skies accusing the decision of being rigged before voting even began, the list leaking earlier this year also sparked conflict in the hip-hop community over what artists were left off. While fans will continue to debate the significance of the XXL Freshman Class List in 2018, there’s still reason to be excited for the coming weeks of cyphers, freestyles and interviews. There’s no denying the potential of this year’s lineup, and who knows what will happen when these artists are put side-by-side. Let …

EdEddnEddy – [J.I.D]

At this point, it’s no surprise that Dreamville signee J.I.D has established himself as one of the most talented new artists in rap. His 2017 debut album, The Never Story, only reinforced this fact, and with the spectacular collection of hits we received on the project, it’s only right that J.I.D revisits some of the songs for accompanying visuals. Today, the ATL native is back on Lyrical Lemonade with the Fred Lozano-directed video for “EdEddnEddy” – the fourth track on the album and one of my personal favorites. Playing on the story-telling nature of the song, these visuals translate J.I.D’s lyrical skills into a highly entertaining flip of the Cartoon Network classic. This one simply can’t be looked over, so be sure to show some love to the rising star by checking out his must-watch new video below.
