“Tiiied” could’ve easily been a 6LACK record for East Atlanta Love Letter. The production sounds like it was tailored for his voice. Yep, J.I.D got another R&B-esque record in the lane of “Hereditary” and “All Bad.”
JID’s singing the hook and it sounds really good. He’s telling this story about an argument in a movie theater with his girl and the imagery is so sharp. Knowing what details to share for the best storytelling is a gift. 6LACK sounds at home. This is a verse! Okay, I’m convinced, we need that J.I.D and 6LACK album next year. Ella Mai sounds great. Placing her at the end was a short but sweet touch, like Rick Ross’ verse on “Monster.” A gem of a record.
J.I.D’s boss J. Cole, Wondagurl, Kenny Beats, Ron Gilmore and Hollywood JB are among the other producers behind DiCaprio 2.
Cole also contributes vocals to one of the tracks but is the only guest that has been revealed so far. The names of the other guests have been scratched out on the back cover, which J.I.D. shared on social media.
About four years ago, the Atlanta MC released a mixtape called DiCaprio featuring 6LACK, EARTHGANG, Key! and others which was very well received by fans. Tonight he puts out the highly anticipated sequel to it.
