Born into hip hop’s golden age and raised in its entrepreneurial bling phase of the 2000’s, JidScan embodies the characteristics of an artist that respects the roots while still looking to be progressive. Coming out of the small town of Franklin, NJ, JidScan started writing his first bits of music as a preteen. His interests in writing raps led to him crafting his own songs that he began recording at the age of 13. Jid spent his teenage years writing and making beats, but it wasn’t until recently that he decided to pursue the music full time after an eye-opening experience changed his perspective on his approach to his goals.
Inspired by greats of today and yesterday, Jid prides himself on his versatility with mind numbing wordplay, an ability to to switch flows on a dime, and he’s even able to hit a few notes as he is developing his own sound. JidScan just released his first official project titled Promise I Won’t Let You Down, a 5 song EP that watches him touch on different sounds as he offers the listener pieces of himself that create a transparent listening experience. The title also serves as a message to his supporters as his story is only beginning. Standout cuts such as “May 25th” exemplify his progressive approach as he puts a twist on The Weeknd‘s fan-favorite “Rolling Stone.” JidScan is poised for a stardom and it seems as if the only limit his the sky.
