US rapper J.I.D has today announced his only New Zealand Laneway Festival sideshow in Wellington. The East Atlanta rapper will bring his unique, high-pitched sound to San Fran in Wellington on January 31.
With an aim to rewrite the recently trap-heavy history of Atlanta, J.I.D, who earlier this year toured on the bass-heavy Hidden Festival, is returning Down Under with some seriously swelling hype. His sophomore album “Dicaprio 2” arrived late last year featuring a star-studded list of collaborators and producers, including Mac Miller, 6LACK, A$AP Ferg, Joey Bada$$, Ella Mai and J.Cole – landing the young MC a triple j feature album.
His early alliance with the craziest cats since Outkast, Earthgang, and his signing to J.Cole’s label, J.I.D’s name has been popping up in all the right places.
