J.I.D – “Somewhere In Atlanta (Freestyle)”

blame it on Shake October 8, 2015

With his Paru Tu: Reloaded mixtape dropping in November, Atlanta native J.I.D has decided to take JAY Z’s MCHG single, “Somewhereinamerica,” on a ride through his hometown.

Equipped with a powerful quote from Dr. Betty Shabazz, the ATLien sidesteps the trap-rap stereotype and proceeds to deliver an honest look at the harsh realities of living (somewhere) in Atlanta.

The first of four freestyles, which will drop every Thursday leading up to his mixtape release, “Somewhere In Atlanta” can be heard below.

Also, if you happen to be in Atlanta this weekend, you can catch J.I.D – and many other talented individuals – at the A3C Festival.
