Critically-acclaimed DMV rapper IDK premiered his new single “Moral” featuring Maxo Kream via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show earlier today. The hard-hitting track was produced by BLWYRMND and distributed by HXLY, LLC/Foundation Media. “Moral”, along with IDK’s last single “Electric” featuring Q Da Fool, will appear on his upcoming EP IDK & Friends 🙂, out November 9th. When discussing the project, IDK reveals, “I wanted to make everything effortless and non-conceptual; I didn’t want to make this particular project a story. I just got with my rap friends and used this as an opportunity to challenge myself and make better hooks and sing-a-long lyrics.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Last week, IDK premiered his 15-minute short IWASVERYBAD (Season 1) via Noisey. The conceptual visual chronicles his teenage years indulging in house parties and bad behavior in Maryland and ultimately getting caught up in the streets. The short, which was directed and produced by Jason “IDK” Mills, Jamie Sanchez and Gregory “Beef” Jones, features the first six tracks off his 2017 debut studio album by the same name.

*Supporting Denzel Curry
DMV rapper IDK (Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge) has been on a hot streak since his standout year in 2017. His 2018 single “No Wave” featuring tourmate Denzel Curry gave IDK a catchy, bass-heavy track that led to over three million Spotify plays. A more recent drop however, was IDK’s braggadocious “Lil Arrogant” with Joey Bada$$ and Russ, which immediately landed in the Top 10 on SoundCloud and continues to rise. After releasing the critically-acclaimed album IWASVERYBAD in partnership with Adult Swim, embarking on a sold-out European tour with Joey Bada$$, and an explosive performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud SoCal festival last December, he was rightfully named one of the “Best New Artists of 2017” by Pigeons and Planes and was featured in Red Bull’s 2018 “Artists To Watch” Campaign. IWASVERYBAD is a vivid autobiography of the 25-year-old’s life: it explores the narrative of IDK’s adolescence – a journey of loss, redemption and eventual triumph- retelling the moments that led to his teenage incarceration and confronting the loss of his mother. Featuring guest appearances from Chief Keef, Swizz Beatz, DOOM, Del The Funky Homosapien, Yung Gleesh, Mother Marygold and more, IWASVERYBAD earned a spot on several major publications’ “Best of 2017” lists including Vulture’s “Best Albums of 2017 So Far,” Genius’ “50 Best Albums of 2017,” Noisey’s “36 Best Overlooked Albums of 2017,” and DJ Booth’s “50 Best Hip-Hop and R&B Albums of 2017.” Most recently, the young rapper released the fiery new single “Star” and embarked on the “Mad Man Tour” with A$AP Ferg and Denzel Curry, performing in cities across the United States.
