Rolling Stone caught up with J.I.D. in between tour dates with Jazz Cartier, to learn more about how he isn’t screwing up this chance to tell his story.
East Atlanta rapper J.I.D has signed with Dreamville Records and Interscope Records, which released his official debut single “Never” in December.
“I wrote the “Never” song at a point in my life when I had nothing and when my future seemed uncertain. Throughout it all I had my family and great people around me who allowed me to pen my pain and take a chance on pursuing my dreams”
“Growing up as the youngest of seven siblings just sucked but there are a lot of valuable lessons that can be learned from watching others mistakes and seeing them grow.“
