A listening party for JID‘s upcoming album, The Forever Story, was shut down on Wednesday.
The Dreamville rapper reportedly held public listening sessions in Atlanta, LA and at New York City’s Irving Plaza ahead of his album’s release on Friday, a member of his team told HipHopDx.
While two of the events seemed to go smoothly, the one in the Big Apple was shut down by New York City police. The source guessed that the party was brought to an end because of the loud crowd and jam-packed venue.
JID was supposed to be in attendance, but he ended up missing his flight. He later took to Instagram to post footage of the cop cars outside the NYC event. “TFS otw,” he captioned the clip, referencing his album’s forthcoming release date.
The Forever Story, the follow-up to DiCaprio 2, includes collaborations with Lil Durk, Ari Lennox, 21 Savage, Johnta Austin, Yasiin Bey, EarthGang, Kenny Mason and Lil Wayne.
“The official features on The Forever Story, wana say thank you to everyone who helped put these words and sounds together,” JID wrote on Instagram. “this meant the world to me because none of this wa[s] eas[y] and you gave your all to my vision.”
The new album drops Friday.
