JID - The Forever Story

Dude, I’m about 5 songs into this thing, and I have to stop to say something

This is incredible hip hop. The flow from JID is incredible. The bars are all there, and somehow the hooks are catchier than ever.

I hope this continues through the whole album. My jaw has hit the floor a couple of times already. Absolutely loving it.

Edit: finished the album. This is JID showing that he really has something to prove. Being one of the oldest right now in the contemporary rap game, it feels like The Forever Story is a do or die moment of JID's career, and JID put the fucking time in. It is incredible. It blows every other rap release this year out of the water. JID shows that he is not going anywhere with a truly career defining moment in his catalogue.

I know nothing about JID other than "OOOOOOOOOH THE MISERY, EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE MY ENEMYYYYYYYYYYYYYY", so this review left me shocked.

I'm listening to J.I.D. right now and I'm absolutely blown away by his flows. This might be one of the best albums this year.

This guy love every overrated hip hop albums? What a vulture.

Sometimes an album is better musically. Just because something is higher rated doesn't mean it's more emotionally convincing than another album - it just means that the musicality is subjectively more intriguing to the ears. Relax. Not to mention that, of course, music is subjective.

He's not one the oldest contemporary rappers

Damn I wish the 2007 didn't get shafted. 2007 as an outro bought the whole album together. and that ending is so powerful bro. Throughout this whole album JID has been trying to prove that he is one of the greats, and Jcole's spoken word at the end felt like the final nail in the coffin. Like, if the rest of the album didn't sell you on JID, Jcole vouching for him and saying that he's something special will convince you that if JID hasn't cemented himself as one of the greats now, he will in the future.
