Jidenna has come a long way from being that “well dressed” rap guy on Janelle Monae’s album. He slowly but surely set a standard for himself and now everybody is checking for him. Always looking dapper, Jidenna is one of the dopest artists in rotation. His new album “The Chief” dropped and it is a certified banger. This multi-talented artist has the ability to write, rap, and sing…which is something a lot of these new dudes don’t do.
While some other rappers are out here saying a bunch of nonsense, Jidenna is giving us nothing but solid lyrics. “Classic Man” hooked us in and “(Long Live) The Chief” kept us waiting for his highly anticipated album to drop. He unleashed the album in New York City at Kola House last week and some people have already put it on heavy rotation. Jidenna sat down with the crew at Ebro in the Morning and talked about all kinds of things. From his custom threads to his acting debut on “Insecure”, he talks about it all. Press play on the two clips and be sure to check his debut album, The Chief.
