Formerly Jay IDK, from Prince George’s County, the rapper became an underground favourite in the past few years after his 2017 album IWasVeryBad which established him among hip-hop heads as he worked with everyone from MF Doom to Chief Keef.

His status as an ace rapper and outstanding hip-hop personality was stabilized with his 2018 EP, ‘IDK & Friends’, having well-organized collaborations with rising stars such as; Rico Nasty, Maxo Kream, and Denzel Curry.

He proved to be witty, , and engaging, telling his unique story with no-nonsense honesty and wry humour.

Apart from announcing the title and release date of his new album, the lyrically astute rapper has also plotted out a supporting tour to follow the album’s release. The new project, ‘Is He Real?‘, will drop on September 4th, and a 14-date tour across America and Canada will kick-off in October.

In a recent Instagram post, IDK reveals that his new album will put him in a new category.

I don’t have peers… my only competition is myself. What I’m about to do with this album is going to put me in a totally new category. I respect what everyone is doing, but with all due respect, I don’t ever really pay much attention these days. I’m doing me… Is He Real will be one of the greatest albums of our generation and that’s on my mother. RIP Julia Lynch. I’ll have a release date 4 you on Tuesday. ? #IsHeReal – he captioned his photo.
