Late last week, rapper IDK announced that he would be serving as music supervisor and composer for Kevin Durant‘s new Showtime documentary Basketball County set to premiere Friday, May 15. It made for a natural pairing — IDK is a D.C. native and one of Durant’s favorite artists. Both grew up seeing their share of some of the United States’ best basketball prospects in and around their neighborhoods.
For the project’s latest single, titled “495” in an homage to Prince George’s County, IDK taps some of that region’s best hip-hop talent in Rico Nasty, YungManny, Big Flock, Big JAM and Weensey for an undeniable posse cut of epic proportions. The single was produced by Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia with contributions from IDK and Acyde.
“This is a project that is near and dear to my heart,” Durant said of Basketball County in a press release. “Having grown up in Prince George’s County and with my family residing there today, it’s my life’s mission to not only give back through my foundation but continue to tell the amazing stories of those that have come from there. I’m really excited to be partnering with Showtime and for fans to hear from some of the world’s best players about what PG County means to them.”
