CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

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

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.

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.

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.

The 405
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.

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

R.A.T.R. - Entry #3:

JID in my opinion is honestly one of the more exciting rappers to debut within the past five years (of which there are only a handful), with his sophomore album really working out all of the kinks The Never Story had, while vastly improving on his lyricism and production choices within a year's length. Out of the entire Dreamville roster he's definitely the most technically talented and he gets the cosign from J. Cole with his best verse of all time on Off Deez. Some ... read more

If there was one project, I would give 100 to... it would be this one.... Everything about this album is amazing, not bloated, no fillers, great feature list, compelling themes, infectious bars, witty rhymes, hard-hitting moments and emotional masterpieces, this album has all of it with each track telling a different story from the next. Back in high school, this was my most streamed and on repeat album from 2018 and it has stood the test of time. Thank you JID for making this underrated gem.
