“I don’t have peers… my only competition is myself,” he wrote on Instagram. “What I’m about to do with this album is going to put me in a totally new category. I respect what everyone is doing, but with all due respect I don’t ever really pay much attention these days. I’m doing me… Is He Real will be one of the greatest albums of our generation and that’s on my mother. RIP Julia Lynch.”
Along with release date, IDK has shared the album’s official cover art and unveiled his upcoming tour dates.
IDK’s aptly named Is He Really Touring? Tour will kick off with a festival date later this month. Following his 2019 Made In America Festival gig, the Maryland-bred rapper will resume his travels in October and conclude his run of shows in November.
