DiCaprio 2


About “DiCaprio 2”

Released on November 26, 2018, DiCaprio 2 is J.I.D’s second commercial project, following March 2017’s The Never Story. It is also the sequel to his January 2015 EP DiCaprio. Both projects are named after Leonardo DiCaprio, who J.I.D has frequently indicated is his favorite actor.

“151 Rum,” the album’s lead single, was released on September 19, 2018. On October 3, 2018, COLORS premiered a video of J.I.D performing the song “Workin Out.” The album’s second official single, “Off Deez,” a collaboration with J. Cole, was released on November 6, 2018. Another song on the album, “Hasta Luego,” was released on June 29, 2017, as a throwaway from The Never Story, but it was included on DiCaprio 2 as a bonus track.

On October 31, 2018, J.I.D posted the album’s official artwork and announced its release date. An alternate cover art had previously been revealed on September 15, 2018.

Billboard released an interview with J.I.D on November 1, 2018, in which he extensively discussed the album. In the interview, it is revealed that the album boasts contributions from J. Cole, BJ the Chicago Kid, Method Man, and more.

On November 11, 2018, J.I.D revealed the album’s tracklist. He attempted to hide the features, but some were visible, possibly intentionally.

DiCaprio 2 arrives approximately five months after J.I.D’s inclusion as a 2018 XXL Freshman. His captivating freestyle and cypher broadened J.I.D’s fanbase to a group of people that had never heard of him or his music.
