Jason Mills Aka IDK surprised everyone with an EP titled IDK & Friends :). The seven-song EP features guest appearances from Wale, Denzel Curry, Rico Nasty, Domo Genesis, Q Da Fool, Thirty Rack, and Maco Kream. It was first premiered on Adult Swim, before it was formally released. On the project IDK denotes his lack of trust, lust for blue dollars and problematic relationships. In addition, he uses a mix of experimental and boom-bap instrumentals from start to finish.
When discussing the project, IDK mentioned the following: “I wanted to make everything effortless and non-conceptual.I didn’t want to make this particular project a story. I just got with my rap friends and used this as an opportunity to challenge myself and make better hooks and sing-a-long lyrics.”
Not entirely focused on the depth of the EP, he took the opportunity to fine-tune the weak elements in his music. Along with the assistance of some friends, the 16-minute project is an easy listen with most songs clocking less than 3 minutes.
Moreover, this project arrives ahead of his upcoming album titled Is He Real which drops in December. Not to mention, Is He Real will be his first studio album. So for the record, IDK & Friends 🙂 is not his debut. Instead, it’s mainly just a snippet of what’s to come in the near future.
