Three months removed from his July album USEE4YOURSELF, IDK is back with nine new tracks for the project’s deluxe copy. Rather than sharing all new original songs, a good portion of the new additions are extended or alternated versions of tracks from the original album.
The songs “Temporary Love” with SiR and “Dogs Don’t Lie,” which adds Royce Da 5’9″, are given the extended treatment in the deluxe. IDK also added a second, alternate version of the album’s ninth song “Puerto Rico.”
Two of his 2020 singles which did not end up on the album find themselves in the deluxe with “Cereal” featuring JID and Kenny Mason as well as “2 Cents” which adds Shy Glizzy to the original version. The four brand new songs of the nine deluxe tracks boast exciting features from Trippie Redd and Lil Yachty.

IDK releases second studio album ‘USEE4YOURSELF’
Maryland rapper throws his second album into the mix of a busy hip-hop Friday.
IDK dropped his second studio album USEE4YOURSELF on July 9. He first announced the album on June 4, with its cover art being a portrait of him with a durag on. Going into the album, IDK had dropped four explosive singles, signed a Nike deal and built a basketball court in his home county in Maryland.
When I used to shoot my shot, you a Matrix
Now you reappear, but I hate tricks
Look, nobody likes a fake ho
Bitch, love who I am, not my bankroll“Shoot My Shot” — IDK, Offset
Next, he released USEE4YOURSELF‘s second single “Peloton,” truly displaying how far IDK has come as an artist where he says in the opening verse, “Baby, I done changed, see I had some time to grow.” He couples his harmoniously sung hook alluding to sex as riding a stationary bike with mutiple flow patterns on his verses about relationship troubles.
The morning of July 9, IDK released the fourth single “Red” on YouTube, featuring Westside Gunn, Jay Electronica and the late MF DOOM, who IDK says cleared his portion a month before his passing in October. Over the abstract, violin instrumental, IDK provides the beef to this gourmet, lyrical burger of a song in the middle with charismatic verses and a rhythmic, Kanye-inspired hook with an assist from DOOM. Gunn opens the track with trademark gun-mimicking ad-libs and verse, while Electronica backends the track with some intense bars that he has built his career on.
IDK and his features in these singles develop excellent chemistry, proving his versatility and skill at being able to hold his own with some of rap’s best on a song. The rest of the tracklist includes more of hip-hop’s stars of past and present like Rico Nasty, Slick Rick, T-Pain, Swae Lee and others.
This is a huge coming out party for IDK, lined with a loaded feature roster and attractive lead singles. Check out what IDK has in store for his sophomore album USEE4YOURSELF, released on Friday July 9.
