Atlanta emcee J.I.D. doesn’t reciprocate the sound of his local peers. Rather than capitalize on a popular wave of trap-inspired hip-hop coming out of his geographic region, J.I.D. continues to spit it his way. This approach has landed him a deal with J. Coles Dreamville label and provided him the luxury of a core fan base. These core fans were given a pleasant surprise on December 27th when the rapper unexpectedly dropped a previously unreleased mixtape from 2013 on SoundCloud. Although these tracks are old, they have really aged well and says a lot about how long J.I.D. has been nice for. Check out the tape below and wonder like the rest of us why this didn’t get released when it was recorded.
