IDK, YungManny pay tribute to late rappers on “495”

The song also features Weensey, Rico Nasty, Big Jam and Big Flock.

IDK and YungManny have joined forces on their new single, “495.”

The song was co-produced by IDK with Juicy J and Acyde, and features rappers from across the DMV area (comprising Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia). The guest artists include Weensey, Rico Nasty, Big Jam and Big Flock.

IDK kicks off the track by paying tribute to late industry peers such as Nipsey Hussle, XXXTentacion and Pop Smoke. “RIP Bankroll, RIP Nipsey / RIP Smoke Dawg, RIP Jimmy / RIP Pop Smoke, that shit got me stressed / RIP X-X-X-X-X,” IDK raps over a hypnotizing instrumental.


Later in the song, Big Jam and Big Flock swap lines that reflect on their tough upbringings. “When me and JAM’s out, no miscommunication / I was only 16 when our house got raided / I was only 13 and incarcerated / Been this way since a child, need no validation,” they spit. Rico and Weensey close out the track with tongue-in-cheek bars.

“495” will be featured in the upcoming Kevin Durant documentary, Basketball County: In the Water, for which IDK served as the music supervisor and composer. The documentary arrives tomorrow on Showtime. Last month, the rapper also dropped a video for his song, “In My White Tee.”
