CRITIC REVIEWS

Highsnobiety

Largely, DiCaprio 2 is a master class of inventive flows and excellent curation of seemingly random song elements. He can rap in more flows than can be counted on both hands, and he can sing equally as well. Leonardo DiCaprio may not be in his prime anymore, but it certainly appears that J.I.D soon will be.

Exclaim!

DiCaprio 2 exemplifies what the ideal student of the game sounds like — someone who's conscious of how a hook presents itself, how to control their delivery and how to diversify their lyrical bonds. Though J.I.D. isn't as seasoned as Leonardo DiCaprio just yet, he is the inception of what makes someone the G.O.A.T.

AllMusic

Turning in seamlessly intricate flows and hyper-focused lyrics, J.I.D ascends to a higher plane on DiCaprio 2.

HipHopDX

As cliché as it sounds, there is something for everyone and their mother on DiCaprio 2. J.I.D. breaks the mold originally set by J. Cole, takes all the best parts and mixes them with his own distinctive practice and pitch that work seamlessly with the array of trap and soulful beats (Thanks Christo and company).

The Needle Drop
With sick flows and a versatile delivery, J.I.D's latest effort is one of the rawest and most lyrically refined rap albums of the year.

Pitchfork
The East Atlanta rapper’s second album doesn't try to take on the world and is all the better for it, showing that J.I.D. has much more to offer than his formidable rapping chops.

This is the guy y’all are gassing? Even a playful Method Man verse can’t quite breathe life into this thing. Rappers may well say study the game, but J.I.D spent so much time staring he’s forgotten himself in the mix.

JID has a lot of lyrical ability for someone with nothing to say. This is a perfect example of style over substance, talent not equating to artistic ability, etc. While this is a good album, JID does not offer much to the album that countless other artists could have done, leaving a handful of enjoyable tracks that I will likely never return to.

Don’t get all this negativity. I personally think JID came trough with a solid collection of tracks. While this is not as cohesive as The Never Story. It has some of my favourite songs from him.

Best Tracks: Off da Zonkys, Working Out, Hot Box, Just da Other Day, Off Deez and Skrawberries

I did like this project, and while it wasn't cohesive as I hoped, most of the tracks were generally good. J.I.D really shows off his fast and slick flows and decent to good writing which can still be improved upon. Still this project is a cut above lyrically from other lyrical rappers that just rely on speed like Joyner Lucas, Logic or Eminem. The production is also very solid and clean throughout, shining on songs like Workin Out and Slick Talk. The one thing I also enjoyed was the ... read more
