IDK continues to find new ways to proudly rep the streets that raised him. His latest offering is a Go-Go edit of his recent single “Shoot My Shot” featuring Offset. Go-Go is a well-loved genre of music that unmistakably and proudly originated in the DMV area. The London-born, Maryland-raised artist recruited production duo New Impressionz for a re-imagined Go-Go mix, which keeps most of the original catchy lyrics and put them over a drum-heavy beat:
When I used to shoot my shot, you a Matrix, now you reappear, but I hate tricks/ Look, nobody likes a fake ho, bitch, love who I am, not my bankroll/ But I’m up, so that is not realistic
Shoot my shot, then I check the ballistics/ Shoot my shot, then I’m on to the next one/ Shoot my shot, no stress when I’m sexin’, uh
So far this year, IDK showed off his versatility by putting his own spin on two of today’s most popular tracks: “Back In Blood” by Pooh Shiesty and “Gravity” by Brent Faiyaz and DJ Dahi. After that, he delivered an impressive reimagination of Pharrell’s staple hit “Frontin’,” stationing himself in a studio with a live orchestra as he delivers the iconic lyrics.
IDK’s forthcoming USEE4YOURSELF project will follow his 2019 debut LP Is He Real?, which saw 14 tracks with additional assists from DMX, Pusha T, JID, Tyler, the Creator, Burna Boy, GLC, Lil Kymchii, Jerm, and Kapri Styles. Last year, he liberated the second installment of his well-received IDK & FRIENDS compilation series — this time, it acted as an official soundtrack to the Kevin Durant-produced Basketball County: In The Water, a film that was centered around basketball talent in Prince George’s County, Maryland. IDK & FRIENDS contained collaborations with the likes of Wale, Xanman, A$AP Ferg, Juicy J, PnB Rock, YungManny, and Rico Nasty over nine songs.
