J.I.D. pays homage to a classic cartoon in original new visuals for "EdEddnEddy."
Dreamville's J.I.D. has been quietly establishing himself as one of the game's dominant lyricists, with his slept-on The Never Story still picking up new fans. Today, the rapper drops off the animated video for "EdEddnEddy," a Fred Lozano directed homage to his favorite cartoon. While the video was originally supposed to premiere on Adult Swim, the business side soon put a stop to J.I.D.'s best laid plans.
"We wanted to do something special for this release because this show meant a lot to me growing up,” J.I.D explains. “We recreated this cartoon and made it for my people, in the month of February, on some history type shit and partnered with a major TV network for release, but legal shit took over the vision of the art. All type of lawyers had to clear shit which would have took forever so fuck it, we can create this moment without em for now.”
