About J.I.D

Destin Route (b. October 31, 1990), better known by the stage name J.I.D, is an American rapper from Zone 6, Atlanta, Georgia. He describes himself as “a soft-spoken but intricate lyricist with a cocky side.” His stage name originates from “jittery,” his grandmother’s nickname for him due to his sporadic behavior as a child.

J.I.D signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville Records on February 20, 2017. Less than three weeks after his signing, he released his debut studio album, The Never Story on March 10, 2017; the project received critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. On November 26, 2018, J.I.D released DiCaprio 2, his sophomore studio album, which is also a sequel to his 2015 EP DiCaprio.

Around the time of DiCaprio 2’s release, his stage name was adjusted to JID (without the periods) only on streaming services because it makes it easier for users to find his music.
