IDK delivered his Is He Real? album on Wednesday (Sept. 4) ahead of his North American trek starting next month. The 14-track project is loaded with features and includes previously released singles “24” and “Digital,” which notched appearances on the soundtracks for Madden 20 and NBA 2K20.
Whether it’s a sermon served up by DMX or a conversation with Tyler, The Creator, Is He Real? is full of surprises. Other guests such as Pusha T, J.I.D., GLC, and Burna Boy also landed assists on the record. One notable ommission, Frank Ocean, was unfortunately scrubbed from the album at the last-minute due to clearance issues.
“I had to take Frank Ocean off of the album because I didn’t get the clearance in time,” the Maryland native explained. “Frank Ocean is my favorite artist of this generation and I would have pushed the album back again but I couldn’t do that to my fans. I do appreciate his team for reaching out to get it cleared.”
Following his performance over the weekend at Made In America Festival, IDK continues his tour across the United States with October shows in Austin, Philly, NYC, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, and more.
