iD the Poet

Streaming: Apple Music / Spotify / Xbox Music / Google Play / BandCamp

iD raps sharp-witted prose over breakbeats, dystopian synths and ominous samples. Raised in LA, now lives in San Diego. He’s rocked shows with Guru (Jazzmatazz), Talib Kweli, Aceyalone & Myka Nyne (Freestyle Fellowship), Living Legends, Little Dragon, 2Mex, Awol One, and more.

Across five songs on “Work Epic,” released earlier this year, San Diego’s iD the Poet waxes philosophical about the invasiveness of modern work, its omnipotence and Orwellian feel. He’s half Thoreau, wanting to improve the systems current flaws, and half Aesop Rock, a heady wordsmith, all rhythm and timing…”- Jay Smith, NBC San Diego

iD is a dope writer with a highly literate sensibility. Which is to say he raps like some of those Brave, New World-type of books I used to read in school, exposing the savagery of so-called “civil society” –Quan Vu, www.SDRaps.com

Taken together, his body of work can be looked at not only as continuously evolving, but also as a clear representation of someone who makes music because he loves it.” -Seth Combs, Citybeat Magazine
