If you’re not up on Jidenna as of yet, let us put you on. The Midwest artist is signed to Janelle Monae’s Wondaland Records and will be featured on the upcoming Wondaland Presents: The Eephus compilation scheduled for release on August 14. The single “Classic Man” has been gaining some buzz lately, getting a remix from T.I. just last month. Kendrick Lamar is the latest rapper to bless the track with a guest feature.
The record is a little different than what we heard on To Pimp A Butterfly, giving fans some not-so-serious lyrics, which is the opposite of what we have been hearing from him. As he told The Guardian, he knows exactly where he wants to take his third album, so these features might be his way of being more playful and candid, as opposed to the serious topics of depression and racial tensions in the country we hear on his solo records.
