Hailing from PG County, Maryland, Jay IDK is a 23 year old rapper who has found his lane by mixing consciousness with ignorance (the IDK in his moniker stands for “Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge”). He released his debut album Sex, Drugs & Homework in 2014 to minimal buzz, but has hustled relentlessly build his brand. Jay IDK brings a strong sense of storytelling and substance with his music, which garnered him comparisons to a Section.80 Kendrick Lamar. He released his sophomore album SubTRAP last July, which has got him some radio airplay and features in music publications. Jay IDK’s ultimate career goals are to deliver real change and be remembered as one of the most successful socially aware artist.
