A 90’s baby like myself, J.I.D. is definitely one I think many listeners can relate with. A college football player, who after returning home from school began his career in music dropping his first mixtape, Route Of All Evil back in 2012. He supported his music dreams with mediocre jobs before starting to really take off. J.I.D.’s, government name is Destin Route and he hails from Atlanta, Ga.
J.I.D. dropped his first album The Never Story in 2017, under Dreamville and Interscope Records. I was listening to my Tidal radio when on random shuffle the song 8701 comes on “your best sh*t ain’t better then my worst sh*t, yeah” is how the hook goes. Can’t help but nod your head to this. Accompanied by the smooth way 6LACK rides the beat. 8701 is perfect in length, the way it builds as the track moves on. Go check him out below…
