J.I.D. may be one of the most lyrically adept up-and-coming artists in the game. The Dreamville signee dropped his debut studio album The Never Story in early 2017, and the project garnered him rave reviews. J.I.D. spent several months in 2018 teasing his follow up project, entitled DiCaprio 2. The "151 Rum" rapper stated in an interview with Inverse back in 2015 that Leonardo DiCaprio happens to be his favorite actor, inspiring him to name his EP after him at the time. "He always has a certain passion about [his movies]," stated J.I.D. "That’s the same passion I feel like I have about my music." The DiCaprio inspiration will continue for J.I.D.'s second album.
