“151 Rum” is the lead single from DiCaprio 2. It is J.I.D’s first solo release since his June 2017 single, “Hasta Luego.” He announced the song, its single artwork, and its release date on Instagram on September 16, 2018. In the caption of the post, J.I.D wrote a heartfelt message to his fans. “151 Rum” is named after Bacardi 151, a discontinued brand of highly alcoholic rum, which is itself named after its alcohol proof level of 151. Bacardi 151 was sold in the US from 1963 to 2016; its production was then discontinued indefinitely. In an Instagram live video on the day of the song’s release, J.I.D gave an in-depth discussion on the song’s meaning and background. On September 16, 2018, J.I.D discussed the song in a lengthy post on Instagram: "Aight here we go bruh, I got a new record coming out 9/19/2018 to begin this Dicaprio2 journey, I put out the first Dicaprio on my soundcloud February 2015(it’s still there if u wana go listen) this project isn’t like the nevrr story or anything u heard from me b4, it isn’t my gkmc or whatever else your are expecting it to be ‘headass'lol its not what I expected it to be but I love it and I appreciate the journey it took me through to get me here, each song feels like a individual film to me, mac came thru and helped post produce and organize on almost every song on here, I worked on being a better writer, even outside of punchlines and shit, like I can rap all fuckn day but I like writing songs and shit too, whatever, like I really just challenged my self to becoming better, period, plus me and you guys(us) have formed a special bond and that can’t be taken lightly, i appreciate every like, follow, message anyone that has ever sent, told someone about my music, trolled me, anything, thank u, hope you guys enjoy this trip we about to take, p.s I wrote all this shit but I wouldn’t read it if someone else wrote it Lmfaoo it’s just a lot, lol if U still reading this u really love me and you care lmfao, I care too and I love ya so I’m still writing this, ok, gotta take off to Berlin Now, love ya, p.s.s this album is for car rides, working out and smoke sessions(in cars) or wherever u wana smoke that’s sonically friendly."
