JID is in album mode. The Atlanta-bred spitter returned on Tuesday (August 9) with a brand new single from his forthcoming The Forever Story LP.
Produced by frequent collaborator Christo, “Dance Now” finds the Dreamville MC showcasing his speedy yet controlled delivery alongside guest appearances from fellow ATLien and rising singer Fousheé.
“You can see the hustle, you can recognize/Overcame struggle when the devil tried/Lemme bear it all when I’m tellin’ God/You know I’ma rant when I talk to Jah,” he raps while making a slick reference to Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant.
The song is accompanied by a cinematic video directed by Trey Lyons — watch it below.
JID also shared the cover art for The Forever Story, which captures the different realities Black people face in America.
Some on the cover are in prison jumpsuits, others are staring down the barrel of a police officer’s gun with their hands up, while a lucky few have escaped the streets through sports.
