Heady, rising DMV rapper Jay IDK surveils the changing landscape of his life on "Trust Nobody," a potent new track featuring the deep-voiced Charlotte, NC spitter Deniro Farrar that premieres today on The FADER.
Over crouched, creeping beat (co-produced by Lo-Fi, Jay IDK, and Blue Rondo), Jay attempts to parse new friends, old friends, and real friends. Everybody want to join my circle now/ Don't nobody see me as an Urkel now, he conspires. That's a square, that is what they used to call me last year/ Bet they only love me as long as my money last.
"Money sometimes provokes the people around you to act as if they have your best interest at heart," he further explained in an email to The FADER. "Trusting no one protects you from falling victim.”
