J.I.D. is the latest bubbling MC on J. Cole’s Dreamville roster. The Atlanta, Georgia native dropped a monster of a solo debut with this spring’s The Never Story (among AFH‘s best of ’17, so far). Of the Spillage Village crew, J.I.D. keeps a low profile, and has not relied on features to kick in the industry door. Instead, it’s been about barrages of bars and clinics in flow.

“Hasta Luego” is a reported holdover from The Never Story sessions. Certainly, the Wondagurl and CuBeatz-produced song packs the punch for the Interscope-backed LP. The title translates to “bye” as J.I.D. bids adieu to anybody thinking that they may be able to occupy his lane. The song also addresses a time in the artist’s life wen he had to get out of East ATL. He recalls the pressures, angst, and poverty around him.
