Ahead of their big single drop, J.I.D. opens the door for Deante Hitchcock to join the Spillage Village collective.
Atlanta crew Spillage Village emerged from hibernation to channel the harbingers of the apocalypse, announcing their upcoming single "End Of Days." Those familiar with the clique, which consists of J.I.D, EarthGang, 6LACK, Mereba, HollywoodJB, and JurdanBryant, understand that the clique has been growing together for years now; the mutual respect is only matched by the musical talent.

While it's been four years since they dropped off their latest album Bears Like This Too Much, Spill Vill have confirmed that their next album Spilligion is set to arrive later this year. And with momentum looking strong, what with lead single "End Of Days" landing tomorrow and all, Deante Hitchcock has come looking to see if the group is seeking new applicants.
"Rapping wise I always wished I came up round a group of n****s like @SpillageVillage," writes Deante, showing some love to his collaborator J.I.D and the collective as a whole. "Them boys keep each others pens sharp and I love hearing all of em come together. Can’t wait to hear the new shit." The kind words were enough to elicit a response from J.I.D, who invited Deante to join should he be so inclined. "Y’all got good dental insurance?" asks Deante, only to have his dreams swiftly shattered. "Nope, we broke baby," responds J.I.D.
While it's unclear whether Deante will actually move forward as a member of Spillage Village, it wouldn't be surprising to see him continue to build with the clique. Perhaps we'll even see a feature on Spilligion, whenever that one lands. Check out the exchange below, and look for "End Of Days" to drop tomorrow.
