    The Forever Story rollout beginning... Make or break album for jiddy jid :lol6:
    I think of this doesn't do what it's expected to do, we can blame dreamville and how they roll out the artists

    I completely disagree. They’ve given JID the freedom to explore whatever he wants artistically all while setting up him for features, ie Imagine Dragons, festival looks etc. The labels aren’t magic, they can open doors for you but you gotta walk through them. Jay was right, IMO, make some hits and everything else falls in place.

    All facts. Either you gone blow or you’re not, label can’t work magic on these n----s lol. Imo he in the perfect position, just gotta do what he gotta do. If he never blow, then it is what it is, lowkey think he past that, jid is basically who he is now, think that’s what it is with all of them on dreamville, they not getting no bigger mainstream wise. And ain’t nothing wrong with that tbr. Only one who has a chance at getting bigger than what they are at this moment is ari Lennox, only cause she is an r&b singer, and like I’ve been saying for years now, a r&b singer will blow quicker than a rapper , cause the music is more accessible and universal

    And fr what’s the point? Game is different now, The whole camp is at minimum living comfortably. Jid, Bas and Ari are definitely millionaires. It’s a great time to be a “major indie” artist. I think, without hits, JID could maybe get to the Vince Staples level. Vince is also younger than JID lol but you get the point.

    Edit: this song is a f---ing slap man. I got that humming melody stuck in my head

    Valid points. I just feel like dreamville do a lot of missteps with album rollouts. Kid been talking about TFE for like a couple years, that could just be his creative process and overthinking but that's valuable time where u lose momentum. Surround sound was pretty much a hit but that dropped 6 months ago, that could well have been the lead single but something came up and they/he fumbled it. Anyway I think we're all expecting great things, hope he delivers

    I think they can be too deferential to the artists, bordering on enabling at times. I think any artist that’s trying to break in the game benefits from guidance and sometimes just being told what to do. Seems like they had such a negative experience at the Roc that they swung too far in the other direction.

    Some funny lines and cool flows but seems a bit obsessive on Game’s part. He has loved Em for years. And now all because Game wasn’t invited to the super bowl he lashes out? Petty and weak lol

    If Em is on his Killshot s--- it’ll be a wrap

    Respect but idk fam. The game can truly rap. I don’t see Em obliterating him at all.

    I like Game. He’s got some gems under his belt. But he has been inconsistent the past decade or so just like Em. And Em’s highs are much higher than Game’s, even when Em is inconsistent. I hope Shady responds. Middle aged rap beef why not lol

    Rocky started out hot and halfway through fizzled out

    Should’ve gotten a heavyweight like Cole on it

    Everyone else killed it
