One of hip-hop’s most promising new acts, IDK, emerges with a new record off of his upcoming album IWVB, titled, “17 Wit a 38.” Premiering exclusively on Billboard, the Chief Keef-assisted song addresses the lifestyle that comes with living fast and on the wild side of life.
In a statement to Billboard, IDK noted how he got Keef on the record. “I connected with Keef through his uncle who had been watching my growth since day one,” he said. “I thought Keef would be perfect for the record so I sent it to him and he sent it to Keef. It took a while but I finally got the verse back the day the announcement of who is featured on the album was made.”
Known for an aggressive and intelligent lyrical style, the artist also notes the biographical nature of the song: “The inspiration of this song comes from my past experiences. Although most people now a days wouldn’t really brag about a 38 revolver, it was reality for me. Let’s just say, it got things done.”
IWVB features the likes of Swizz Beatz, DOOM, Yung Gleesh, Del the Funky Homosapien, Mother Marygold along with production from Kal Banx, Tae Beast, Thelonious Martin, Lo-Fi, Daniel Worthy, and more. The project drops in its entirety today (Oct 12) on Adult Swim and is available everywhere tomorrow (Oct 13) . Pre-order here on iTunes.
