With all of the press, articles and oral history pieces surrounding the tenth anniversary of Kanye’s game changing debut, The College Dropout (2/10/04), we’re sure to see some killer content over the course of the next week. Billboard dropped an amazing oral history piece earlier today, which interviewed the likes of John Monopoly, No ID, Dame Dash and others. And just a few hours ago, this vintage and unreleased video of A-Trak on tour with Kanye in the CD-era surfaced. This is great. I’m not sure what vault they found this in, but salute to them. GLC is too funny.
Pavy links with close associates The Boy Illinois and Page Kennelli to go completely off grid. Why are they missing in action? Because they’re so busy working. No days off. Not now, not ever. Listen to their hard work pay off with “M.I.A.”
This is a leak from DJ Que Eleven & DJ Playmaka’s upcoming Bad Boys mixtape. As an added bonus hit the jump to check out Pavy’s collabo with Thomas Mac, “Midnight.”
If you work in the Chicago music scene, a name you’ve surely heard over the past few years is David D.A. Doman. He’s put in work and paid dues in the local market, having crafted beats for the likes of Bump J, Mikkey Halsted and ZMoney; but David is now making national waves, having recently laced beats for such major label artists as Fabolous, 2 Chainz and Tyga.
David’s stock is quickly rising, and is sure to hit a fever pitch after his most recent placement — the first single from the forthcoming Young Money compilation (featuring Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Tyga) — hits the airwaves. So if you’re looking to get some work in with Mr. Doman, you better put in your requests now, because his number will surely be changed soon.
We recently sat down with the incredibly humble and hardworking producer to talk about his recent success, what he has in the pipeline, and he even offers up some advice and words of wisdom for up and coming producers. Hit the jump to check it out.

And no, Black Rob is not involved.
