IDK — formerly known as Jay IDK — dropped his debut album Is He Real?earlier this week. According to the Warner Bros. artist, the 14-track album is missing one thing — Frank Ocean.

On Wednesday (September 4), the Maryland-bred rapper hopped on Twitter to let his fans know why the Odd Future alum was removed from the project.

“I had to take Frank Ocean off of The album because I didn’t get the clearance in time,” he wrote. “Frank ocean is my favorite artist of this generation and I would have pushed the album back again but I couldn’t do that to my fans. I do appreciate his team for reaching out to get it cleared.”

Is He Real? does, however, feature notable contributions from DMX, Pusha T, Tyler, The Creator, Burna Boy and J.I.D, among others.



He thanked them all for sharing their talents with him via Instagram.

“Thank you for your blessings,” he wrote.
