Yesterday, Maryland rapper IDK announced his monthly radio series with Apple Music and launched his Apple Music 1 show Radio Clue. The monthly one-hour series aims to create an environment where exposure to music is tied to specific memories. His focus is to help listeners find their identity through music education without resorting to lecturing or providing answers. He also debuted exclusive tracks and play hidden gems many will hear for the first time.
Listen live for free to the debut episode of Radio Clue today at 5pm PT/8pm ET or on-demand anytime on Apple Music 1.
On episode one, IDK premieres “Just Like Martin” and talks about buying his first Maybach and then driving to Kanye’s house. He also ignorantly delivers an eclectic mix with some of his favorite tracks to help with studying. A premiere from Mother Marygold “Get Down” and MF DOOM and Pharrell shoutouts. Lastly, he leaves some knowledge on the importance of having good credit.
“Just Like Martin” and its accompanying music video will be widely available tomorrow, Friday, March 19. Produced by CHASETHEMONEY, the single finds IDK gleefully surveying the spoils of his glamorous lifestyle. The accompanying video matches that excess—IDK stomps around a desert, posted up with custom Maybach vans and his friends. It’s an anthem for the go-getters, aspirational to the bone, and reflects the riotous turn his music has taken. Watch HERE.
The idea that hard work pays off flows through a lot of IDK’s recent music, like the orchestral banger “2 Cents” and the boisterous “King Alfred” with Lil Yachty. His recent productive streak hasn’t just been limited to hot tracks though. In December, IDK announced No Label Academy, a 10-day music business program at Harvard University for primarily BIPOC students, made in collaboration with No Label. Last summer, the MC released IDK & Friends 2, the soundtrack to Kevin Durant’s SHOWTIME® documentary, BASKETBALL COUNTY: In the Water, featuring tracks with heavy-hitters like Denzel Curry, A$AP Ferg, and Rico Nasty. He has a new project on the way soon, and if “Just Like Martin” is any sign, it’s set to be another over-the-top joy.
