J.I.D. is putting his stamp on 2018 before the year closes. After delivering the acclaimed DiCaprio 2 project early last week, the 28-year-old returns alongside Dreamville CEO J. Cole for the animated “Off Deez” video Tuesday (Dec. 4).
Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett helms the track’s visual. The black-and-white clip begins with the ATL native smashing a bottle over Bennett’s head. J.I.D. then delivers scathing bars, as illustrated motion graphics float across the screen to replace his facial expressions, and even give him a prop gun.
Cole steps in to give his signee a break with an uptempo assist. Jermaine dons a camouflage jacket and interestingly leaves his headphones in throughout the video. There are even a couple of surprises in store during the flick, as Joey Bada$$ and Mack Wilds make brief cameos.
The “Skrawberries” artist kept busy Tuesday by additionally announcing the first leg of his Catch Me If You Can Tour. He made sure to clear up that the second leg will include major markets across North America. The original trek kicks off in Eugene, Oregon, on Jan. 22 and will wrap up in New Orleans in March.
