J.I.D Dishes On "The Forever Story" Album, Calls It "A Good Piece Of [His] Origin Story"

Dreamville’s own J.I.D shared his debut album five years ago, and since then he’s gone on to make a name for himself as one of the most impressive lyricists out right now.

After sharing The Never Story in 2017, the 31-year-old went on to drop off DiCaprio 2 the next year, followed by his collaboration with Bas on Costa Rica and again with EARTHGANG and Spillage Village on 2020’s Spillingion.

Since then, the Atlanta native has been hard at work crafting a prequel for his beloved debut – one which he shared the tracklist for on Monday (August 22), revealing that he’s got an impressive slate of features lined up, including Lil Wayne, Ravyn Lenae, Lil Durk, and Yasiin Bey, just to name a few.

Before the 15-track effort hits DSPs this Friday (August 26), J.I.D sat down with Complex for an interview, giving fans a better idea of what they can expect to hear on The Forever Story.
