No I.D. Working With Nas & Common; Says Jay-Z’s Recording New Album

| August 31, 2011 | 2 Comments

In an interview with’s The Juice, No I.D. has confirmed that he’s given Jay-Z records for his new album, and that he’s also contributing to both Common and Nas’ projects. Talk about locking in with some of the greats.

“Jay has started again,” reveals No I.D., who worked with the hip-hop superstar on “Blueprint 3″ hits like “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” and “Run This Town.” “He played me a couple of things. I gave him some music while we were at the ‘Watch the Throne’ sessions. But with Jay, you never know what he’s really doing, thinking, planning until it’s really done… I’m sure he’ll make a decision one day to make an album very quickly, like he usually does. He’s one of the best, period. I think he’s at a place where he has visions of what he wants to do, and it’s not really dependent on any of us. It’s dependent on his vision and he’s gonna do it, [and] hopefully I’ll be involved.”

“We’re really trying to revive a certain part of hip-hop that seems to be fading out,” No I.D. says of the Nas and Common albums, which have yet to received release dates. “They’re gonna be full bodies of work that are really dedicated to the fan base. I think [Nas’ new single] ‘Nasty’ and ‘Ghetto Dreams’ are just the cusp of what they have on their albums.”

It also appears he’s already inking artists to Def Jam, as it was announced today that Pusha T has joined the label. Perhaps that was already in motion, but either way, I’m hearing some big announcements are coming.

Tee Jay popped up on the Chicago scene in the early-aughts and then up and disappeared for about half a decade. Well, if you wondered where he went, this video will explain a lot. Very personal, and not even the half of it.
