JID delivers a silky smooth verse on John Legend’s new single.


JID’s always keeping busy. The 31-year-old rapper teased a new album at Coachella this year just after scoring his first top ten hits with his Imagine Dragon’s collab “Enemy.”

Now, he’s collaborating with another big name: John Legend. On Legend’s “Dope,” JID raps over a beat that feels like it was ripped directly from Pharrell’s hard drive. His lyrics revolve around his infatuation with a woman he’s chasing, fitting in well with Legend’s verses discussing a similar lust. Legend, for his part, delivers classic Legend-esque riffs, the most notable of which reaches into the upper-most reaches of his register.

The groovy single comes in a long line of collaborations for JID. The rapper has recently linked up with Lil Yachty for “Van Gogh,” and appeared to be cooking up new music with none other than Dr. Dre. He’s also been named as a feature for EARTHGANG’s new album, Ghetto Gods.

Quotable Lyrics

Hella glam’ on the ‘Gram, lemme see you in person
Can you take away the pain like a pill or a Perc’ 10?
Pertinent information, read first before takin’
The potent medication prescribed by the prettiest ladies
