When J.I.D joined hip hop duo EARTHGANG on tour, he was spotted by J.Cole who promptly signed him to his Interscope Records venture, Dreamville Records. Soon after signing to Dreamville, he made his major-label debut with the widely celebrated The Never Story (2017), followed up quickly by the critically acclaimed album DiCaprio 2 (2018). The sophomore project received major looks from critics and helped induct the rapper to the year’s XXL’s Freshmen class.
In 2019, J.I.D continued his momentum with stellar contributions to Dreamville’s Platinum certified compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III which went on to debut #1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and received multiple Grammy nominations including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance.
After a global hit heading into 2022 in Enemy with Imagine Dragons, came J.I.D’s third studio album The Forever Story, featuring a slew of guest artists including Lil Wayne, Yasiin Bey, James Blake, Lil Durk, and more.
