On Wednesday, August 24, J.I.D had a listening event in Irving Plaza in New York City for his new album The Forever Story. The event was interrupted by police from the New York Police Department.
Shortly after the celebration began, the Dreamville rapper posted video of the fellas in blue arriving there without an invitation to his Instagram Stories. “NYPD shut down JID album “The Forever Story” listening party,” stated one of the subtitles.
The listening parties in Atlanta and Los Angeles, according to a member of his team who confirmed, went off without a hitch. It was shut down at 9 p.m. local time. The three events were happening at the same time, and J.I.D was meant to be at the one in New York City but missed his flight.
According to the source, the event was just too loud and attracted too many people, which is why the cops chose to shut it down.
On Friday, August 26, The Forever Story is anticipated to be released. Among the featured artists are Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, Ari Lennox, 21 Savage, Yasiin Bey, Johnta Austin, EarthGang, and Kenny Mason. In terms of production, the credits list a few artists including Christo, Thundercat, Tommy Brown, Kaytranada, and DJ Khalil.
J.I.D thanked everyone who contributed to the project’s creation on Instagram on Tuesday, August 23. He stated: “The official features on The Forever Story, wana say thank you to everyone who helped put these words and sounds together, this meant the world to me because none of this wa[s] eas[y] and you gave your all to my vision.
The Forever Story is the sequel of DiCaprio 2, which was released in 2018. The album, which was distributed by Dreamville, Interscope, and Spillage Village, reached its highest position on the Billboard 200 at No. 41, a significant improvement over the No. 197 that The Never Story achieved for him the previous year.
