The Forever Story was supposed to be 16 songs.. 8+8= 16 if u flip the 8s to the side u have 2 infinity signs♾♾.. this was my plan 🤷🏾‍♂️.. Better Days” gave me “Hereditary”/”Kody Blu 31” vibes. Strong instrumental and hook, jazz-y and peak storytelling. I didn’t expect the R&B-y Johnta Austin feature but it actually made the song a lot better. Still, JID was owning the song. JID's highly anticipated sophomore album, The Forever Story, presents his reality: a more personal look into his familial life and stories of growing up the last of seven and a student athlete in East Atlanta. JID's nimble, head-nodding lyricism and lightning-fast flow is presented throughout the album with immersive storytelling and thoughtful guest features - all spotlighting his rightful place in rap as one of the greatest in the making. The single “Dance Now” works pretty well in the album, it’s like an anthem, a right JID anthem with an addictive vocal sample from an old Jewish song, telling a story that couldn’t have been told better. Born and raised in East Atlanta, JID grew up on his parents’ collection of classic funk/soul LPs, and broke onto the scene with his 2015 EP, DiCaprio. The EP saw him collaborating with hip-hop duo EARTHGANG, whom he’d previously joined on a 2014 tour also including Bas and Ab-Soul. This is where he was spotted by J.Cole who promptly signed JID to his Interscope Records venture, Dreamville Records.

Right after that, JID surprises you with a rather aggressive beat full of 808s with very strong bars referencing, especially concerning racism and discrimination and his former self as a football player. Just In Time” catches you off-guard. The features are solid but JID’s still the one carrying the song. almost feels like a JID biography. It tells his story once again and perfectly ends the album with a spoken J. Cole outro. Money” is honestly not one of my favorite songs, probably because of its rather childish beat and hook, it’s not a bad song though. The Forever Story is JID’s third studio album, following his critically-acclaimed 2018 sophomore album, DiCaprio 2. JID first gave word of this project on August 27, 2019 in a series of tweets hinting to October as a release for new music. He said that he was “depressed,” leading him to want to drop something.

Running with the hashtag #NEVERISFOREVER on social media in a clear ode to his previous work, promotional events for the album have included a Dolby Atmos Music Fan Experience in Los Angeles and a Pontiac G6, his old car, previewing the album early in select cities. He talked about his significant relationship with the car on “2007”:
