JID puts careful attention to detail into everything they produce. He appears more invested than the typical emcee, and his drive for perfection was palpable throughout the entire production.
At about the halfway point of the set, he turned to his band and said, “I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
“You have admitted, we’re a handsome bunch. As a group, we’re smoking hot.” This live show was taped just before the release of his critically acclaimed third studio album,
The Forever Story, and features the East Atlanta native performing songs from the album for the first time live, as well as classic songs from his catalog in ways we’ve never heard them before.
The Forever Story is a jigsaw whose parts reveal the history of JID. A protagonist is a young man whose hopes of becoming a professional football player were dashed, but who went on a quest to find meaning in his life and eventually succeeded.
Many inner-city youngsters may identify with these stories, but what makes JID’s narrative unique is that no one else raps like him.
He appeals to a wide variety of listeners with his songs since he takes into account history, family, and hometown.
Songs like “Never” and “Surround Sound” are stripped down here to showcase JID’s ability to change pitch, morph words, and switch cadences.
After cutting the “Usher tension” in jest, he and his massive backing band and choir finish with the uplifting “Kody Blu 31.” TheActiveNews.Com is where you may find the most recent and updated news stories.
