J. Cole-Signed Rapper J.I.D. Blows Us Away On Insane Freestyle Over Eminem's Classic "My Name Is"

JId Eminem

J.I.D. might just be your next favorite rapper... the crazy talented MC just took on a classic Eminem track and did not disappoint on one of Dr. Dre's most iconic beats. This freestyle J.I.D. did over Em's "My Name Is" is absolutely next level. The crazy thing is that this is an old freestlye he just decided to re-upload with the note "OG fans remember this" on the SoundCloud Description. Eminem's original is undoubtedly one of the best hip-hop songs of all time and we're not saying J.I.D. just outdid the legend, but it's really cool to hear one of our favorite rising rappers take his shot at the instrumental.

It's no secret J.I.D. is a favorite of ours as he landed a very high spot on our list of top hip-hop albums from 2017 for his must hear album The Never Story. J.I.D. is special. The Atlanta rapper is signed to J. Cole's Dreamville records and has a voice that's as interesting as any rapper out there right now and pushes it to its limits like an elastic instrument. He also has bars on another level from most rappers and can rap laps around his competition. On this freestlye he pays homage to EM with some similar flows and lyrical references, but makes it entirely his own, proving why he's one of the best new rappers out there. As a bonus... check out his full album The Never Story below and enjoy!

Dr. Dre Announces Eminem’s Impending ‘REVIVAL’ Album Release Date Via Instagram

eminem revival

Just a month after his cryptic album rollout began, we finally have a release date for the legendary Eminem’s much-anticipated new album REVIVAL. The mysterious hype around the project sprung up in late October when Eminem’s manager posted a photo that seemed to reveal the album name in the form of a medication. Just a week later Eminem announced the album’s first single, “Walk On Water,” via an Instagram post of a prescription notepad. This announcement quickly followed with the first single featuring Beyoncé coming just one day later.

Thanks to Dr. Dre and a humorous advertisement-style video posted to his Instagram page, we finally have a release date for REVIVAL: The offering will drop in less than three weeks on December 15. We can only hope this means that Dr. Dre and Eminem will collaborate on the project, especially considering that arguably both of the artists’ best work has been together. 

We couldn’t be more stoked by this announcement, and we can’t wait to see what Eminem has in store come December. Check out the announcement video below and enjoy!

Beyonce Eminem

Eminem has unleashed his first single off his next project! This new song “Walk On Water” featuring Beyonce is the first single off his forthcoming album, REVIVAL. Eminem recently came back with a bang, starting much controversy around his BET freestyle in which he tore apart president Trump on an angry, acapella freestyle. 

Quickly following this, his manager put up a cryptic message that Redditors incredibly were able to decipher as the title of his next album to be REVIVAL. If you missed this story, definitely read into it as it’s one of the most insane album announces we’ve seen. Now, after Eminem teased the title of this song, “Walk On Water” is now here and is a big change of pace from the veteran rapper. The piano-based ballad is a soulful, relaxing tune that puts Bey's vocals on full display while Em's lyricism is a sharp as ever. The full project is reportedly dropping Nov. 17 and he’s the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on the 18th so stay tuned for more from Eminem and enjoy!
