In a city known for producing some of the most unique voices in hop-hop, J.I.D and EarthGang stand out as arguably Atlanta’s best new lyricists in a decade. Sure, that may sound like a bold statement, but in a short amount of time the former has carved out his own place among his contemporaries thanks to the release of the exceptional debut, The Never Story, and a slew of viral freestyle videos. Now both signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville Records imprint, J.I.D and EarthGang are closing out the Never Had Sh!t Tour on their home turf, sharing headlining duties.
