J.I.D and Quentin Miller Lounge Around With Some Baddies in “M.O.M.” Video
Two weeks after signing to J. Cole's Dreamville Records, Atlanta's J.I.D is back with a smooth visual for "M.O.M.," an equally smooth track featuring himself and Quentin Miller that's off Spillage Village's 2016 project Bears Like This Too Much.
The new video finds J.I.D and QM reclining under the glow of dimly lit lights as they entertain the company of lingerie-clad baddies. During QM's verse, we see a snake slithering around their bodies, perhaps a phallic reference. In the song itself, we hear J.I.D and QM doing some serious flexing as both Atlanta rappers spit about their lives running through the six.
J.I.D is the latest star to come out of Atlanta, which has long been a breeding ground for the most influential names in hip-hop. In recent years, though, it's been seen more as a haven for extravagant trap rappers than anything else, and that's something J.I.D is trying to change.
“People try to discredit our city,” J.I.D told XXL a little while back. “Our city has a lot of flavors and it’s not all one type. It’s a different scene, it’s a different vibe and it’s Black people everywhere. Black people are creative as fuck; we are a different type of people. So Atlanta having all these qualities, they emphasize one side of it, the trap, and the flashiness. It has been and it’s people there who can do it and I just want to be on the forefront of that and this is what I came here to do.”
You can peep the new visual for "M.O.M."—which is an acronym for "mind over matter"—below.
