IDK Links Up With Asap Ferg On New Single “Mazel Tov”

Hip-hops fans already do know who IDK is, but get ready to hear his name on a more regular basis. IDK, formerly known as Jay IDK, could well be the moment’s most exciting lyrical star from the DMV — the area encompassing the nation’s capital, its nearby Maryland suburbs, and Northern Virginia. With every drop, Maryland native IDK is proving that he simply doesn’t miss. 

After dropping his standout single “495”, featuring fellow DMV stars Rico Nasty, Yung Manny, Big Flock, and Big Jam & Weensey, he delivers his new single “Mazel Tov”, featuring New York’s A$AP Ferg. IDK and Ferg explore the lavish lifestyle that comes with super stardom on the Ronny J produced track, while charting the progression of life since his early days back in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The track’s upbeat tempo and powerful ad-libs are full of vigor and energy, forging a connection between the trippy New York attitude and the DMV spark. Recently, the DMV has been getting lots of attention for its “crank” music, akin to the drill scene in Chicago or the trap scene in Atlanta. While “crank” isn’t exactly known for its crafty wordplay, IDK seems to be one rapper who is able to successfully fuse well-crafted storytelling with the DMV flow. After his major-label debut under Warner Records last year, Is He Real?, where he conceptualized and grappled with religion, IDK has continued to shine putting out three hit stellar singles so far this year. 

In a recent Billboard interview, the rapper admitted that it’s mainstream success he seeks but will not compromise his artistry to get there. So sit back, relax, and let’s see what IDK has in store for us in the next few months. Whatever happens, the future is bright for music in the DMV thanks to rappers like IDK pushing for the emergence of exciting and diverse new styles.
