Brooklyn’s IDE may not be a household name to the average rap head, but the founder of Creative Juices Music has been rocking the underground continuously for nearly 20 years.
As a producer, IDE has lent his talents to Rock Star Video Games and skateboard brands Etnies and DC Shoes. As an emcee, he’s collaborated with Kool G Rap, Killah Priest, Ill Bill, the Outsidaz, Sadat X and more.
With his new project, Breathe Easy now available on CD and iTunes, IDE unleashes gritty, late 90s NYC underground Hip-Hop vibes — a la L The Head Toucha or Street Smartz’s “Metal Thangs” — on the Lucky Loopiano-produced “Flight Patterns.”
