Which label do you think is a better fit for the emcee?
TMZ recently caught up with J.I.D and discussed music for a brief moment, and that’s when the rapper made the revelation.

The cameraperson mentioned that “J. Cole was gonna sign with 50 [Cent] but went with Jay-Z.” They asked if there was “anyone that you ditched in favor of J. Cole.” J.I.D paused for a moment and said, “Not really ‘ditched.'”
“It just happened,” he answered. “We was about to sign with Coach K, though… That’s my dog.” The TMZ rep was surprised before J.I.D quipped, “I was about to be the fourth Migo. Nah, I’m playin’. That’s my dog.”
Quality Control Music has also been a leading force in Hip Hop in recent years as its artists rack up awards, plaques, and No. 1 selling records. It would have been interesting to hear how J.I.D would have settled in sonically, so let us know if you think he’s better paired with QC or Dreamville.
