The rap game has been yearning for new music form the East Atlanta native JID. The Dreamville rapper released his most recent studio album DiCaprio 2 nearly three years ago in Nov. 2018. But, it seems that he has been making plenty other non-music related moves in his absence.
On Oct. 31, JID, in collaboration with Rap Portraits, released his new mini-documentary titled “JID: Own Something, On Earth.”
The documentary spans nearly 10 minutes, and gives insight on the process of JID purchasing his first house.
As the video shows film of JID negotiating his deal with the bank to secure his new home, it also provides details on his current mind state and preparations he is making ahead of his new album.
He reveals many shocking life details, such as looking to get married soon, and a horrific, racially-motivated incident as his parents’ house in Atlanta the day of the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.
Despite that, he touches on his love for his hometown and the idols he looks up to for guidance on financial moves such as Dreamville headman J. Cole and JAY-Z, explaining that his favorite JAY-Z bar related to money comes from his 1996 song “22 Two’s.”
JID also briefly plays snippets for two unreleased songs, with one containing a verse from Lil Yachty, potentially slated to land on his forthcoming album’s tracklist.
Overall, “JID: Own Something, On Earth” gives fascinating insight into the 31-year-old’s life in 2021.
