Video: No I.D. & Traxster Discuss No I.D.’s Def Jam Position

| October 24, 2011 | 15 Comments

“This game is for the taking” – No I.D.

During one of Traxster’s recent Ustream studio sessions, No I.D. dropped by to talk about his new position as Executive Vice President of Def Jam Records. Both Traxster and Dion offered insight as to what this position of power means for Chicago. Here are a few choice quotes from this short and sweet interaction. I would’ve loved to have moderated this convo.

“Favor will kill you faster than a bullet” – No I.D.

“We don’t do favors, we do what people deserve” – Traxster

“I’m already reaching out, though. Y’all gonna see” – No I.D.

Webbie’s profile has risen considerably as of late, after swiftly catching the boot from 106 & Park due to racy comments tossed towards host Rocsi.

Never the one to hold anything back, Webbie called into 107.5 WGCI’s Tony Sculfield and The Morning Riot to discuss the issue and take shots at Terrance J. Webbie even goes on to get a little racy with the Riot’s Nina Chantelle. Yikes!
