IDK Drops Debut Album, ‘Is He Real?’

blame it on Meka September 4, 2019

Having dropped the “Jay” from his name, IDK has been buzzing thanks to high-profile collaborations with Denzel Curry, Maxo Kream and even [adult swim] (with 2017’s incredibly dope IWASVERYBAD). At last, the DMV-reared rapper has released his “major label” debut, Is He Real?

“I don’t have peers… my only competition is myself,” IDK says. “I’m about to put me in a totally new category. I respect what everyone is doing, but with all due respect I don’t ever really pay much attention these days. I’m doing me. Is He Real will be one of the greatest albums of our generation and that’s on my mother. RIP Julia Lynch.”

A 14-track project, IDK is joined by DMX, J.I.D, Pusha T, Burna Boy, GLC, James Blake, and our friend Tyler, the Creator, throughout.
