JID Goes Fishing & Enjoys The Outdoors In '29 (Freestyle)' Video

Fans are counting down the days until JID unleashes his anticipated The Forever Story album. While that time isn’t just yet, the Dreamville rhymer fed his fans’ appetite with “29 (Freestyle)” and an accompanying visual, which arrived on Monday (June 13).

Even though he was raised on the Eastside of Atlanta, JID heads to the country for a day of outdoor activities. The 31-year-old races ATVs through the plains and then straps on some boots to try out fly fishing.

He even catches a fish at the video’s end, but it slips out of his grasp after he poses for a photo with the catch of the day.

“Long time, legacy, legend to his primetime/Like Deion, HBC, you caught your own kind/Blindside, I look out for yours, you look out for mine/Like you Michael Oher or them crackers, Michael Myers at my door,” he raps.

JID didn’t put a release date on his forthcoming album, but provided some context as to what fans can expect sonically from the body of work.

“We pushing these envelopes of sound and flow and pockets and all that shit in this next body of work, I appreciate Christo always being light years ahead with his ear and experimentation, jus a lil freestyle for ya,” he wrote on Twitter. “Real light ’29.’”

Monday was a busy day for JID. In addition to dropping “29,” he appeared in John Legend’s music video for “Dope,” which finds the duo performing at a vintage house party.
