Many moons ago, there was a cassette sampler that existed that preceded the release of No ID’s debut and only album* (*only album he released where he performs and produces), Accept Your Own & Be Yourself (The Black Album), which dropped in September of 1997 on Relativity.
The sampler/interview has been digitally converted, courtesy of Jeff Baraka (O-Type Star) and will be dropping it in four installments.
In Part 1 he chats it up with Mohammed Ali (of Relativity) on a faux radio show (WMOE), and discusses how he hooked up with Common
Sense, how he got the name No ID, his early beginnings in production, Chicago, and plays “Fate or Destiny” (and mentions his upcoming production for the Syndicate, er, Infamous Syndicate)
This is nice piece of history uncovered right here. Props to O-Type!
