Rapper J.I.D. and duo Earthgang all hail from Atlanta and signed to J. Cole's label Dreamville Records last year.
After meeting at school they began making music together and formed rap collective Spillage Village alongside Hollywood JB, Jordxn Bryant and DJ DarkKnight. Following the release of the group's first compilation album 'Bears Like This', J.I.D and Earthgang both hit the road with hip-hop star Ab-Soul in 2014 where they first met J. Cole.
Since then J.I.D has released his debut album 'The Never Story' and Earthgang have dropped their second album 'Strays with Rabies'. Both also opened for J.Cole on his 4 Your Eyez Only Tour last October 🔥
J.I.D's music showcases his talented lyricism and storytelling skills as well as his "limber, alluring, raspy" vocals (Rolling Stone). Take a listen to his track 'Never' below 👇
Earthgang's releases have been praised by Noisey as a "renewal for Atlanta, a departure from the city's familiar club sounds. Every song arrived fully formed, hitting hard and landing jokes while also delving deep into political issues. Check out their track 'Meditate' below...
