IDK has deposited the deluxe edition of their latest album USE YOURSELF with nine new tracks, including “Dinner Date” with Trippie Redd.
The new tracks include a host of new features. From an easy collaboration with Lil Yachty on “King Alfred Plan” to a collaboration with Kenny Mason and JID on fan favorite “Cereal”, to extended versions of “Temporary Love” and “2 Cents” with SiR and Shy Glizzy. The deluxe reissue also comes with a brief 15-minute documentary focused on IDK and the making of the album. It includes appearances by Pharrell Williams, Young Thug, Kevin Durant, Zane Lowe, Offset, Lil Yachty, Mike Dean and more. The deluxe version has arrived as IDK prepares for its massive USEE4YOURSELF tour on November 2, which features Ameer Vaan and will make stops in New York City, Boston, Las Vegas and other locations.
In an interview with Complex, IDK explained at length what it is like to be vulnerable in his music, and how he wants to be both a role model and an approachable, down-to-earth human being. “The most important thing for me is that I am a success story for a lot of people,” he said. “Even when I feel like I have more work to do, there are a lot of people who would die to be in the position I’m in. So my idea is to show them that I’m there, I am near, and I am close at hand.
The documentary also touches on IDK’s 10-day music business program he taught at Harvard University, an experience that IDK said was once again meant to show people that success in the music industry is possible.
“Some people might want to be publicists; some people want to be a manager, ”he said. “This isn’t about teaching you how to record rhythms in Pro Tools or create rhythms in Logic. It’s about teaching how to understand the business and what it takes to be able to monetize and make money. And with that, create a lasting career.
