Continuing his current ascent, Dreamville rapper J.I.D made his late-night television debut on the most recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, performing “Skrawberries” alongside BJ The Chicago Kid and Thundercat. Notably, “Skrawberries” comes to us via J.I.D’s latest studio project, DiCaprio 2.
“The ‘Scrawberry’ song, I started that in 2015 and I finished the verse this year. I’ve just been sitting on it like, ‘Oh, this going to be special,’ you know what I’m saying?” J.I.D recently told Billboard, breaking down the process that brought “Skrawberries” to life. “A lot of my music is like that. A lot of the stuff that I’m putting out now, it’s stuff that I made back then — and I’m still creating new shit. So these [songs] just gonna have to catch up gradually.”
You can check out J.I.D, BJ The Chicago Kid and Thundercat’s Tonight Show performance of “Skrawberries” above.
