Tag: No I.D.
Fresh off of being featured in the 2013 XXL Freshmen class, HHDX is reporting that Baltimore emcee Logic has inked with Def Jam and will have his debut album executive produced by the Windy’s own No I.D.
“Logic has a great future ahead and we are happy to have him at Def Jam. He has the talent to be a great artist and make a strong presence in our industry ,” said No I.D., EVP A&R, Def Jam Recordings and Executive Producer of Logic’s forthcoming debut album.
No I.D. in the role of executive producer will make the Maryland emcee’s LP an interesting listen. Expect the album to impact later this year.
Before track twelve from Nas’ Life Is Good featured the vocals of Nasir, the track belonged to J. Cole. We’ve known about this one for a long time, but Cole finally unleashes his version via his freshly released Truly Yours EP.
The track is just one of the many tracks that Cole and No I.D. have in the stash, so enjoy and hope to hear more soon. This one also features background vocals from the Windy’s own Kaye Fox.
Chicago hip-hop hit it big yet again at the Grammys, with a handful of homegrown artists scorning nominations. The nomination ceremony was held this evening in Nashville (the first time outside of LA in five years), and No I.D., Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Da Internz and R. Kelly all have a chance to bring home gramophone’s in February.
No I.D. scored big with Nas, nabbing noms for both “Daughters” and the Life Is Good album. Da Internz are also up for their work on Nas’ most recent release. Lupe is up for rap album of the year for Food & Liquor 2, and Ye and Jay snagged multiple for “N***** In Paris” (and Ye for “Mercy”), while Kells is up in the R&B categories, obviously.
Congrats to everyone for their nominations, and best of luck on February 10th on CBS. Hit the jump to check out the rest of the rap-related nominees.
No I.D., J. Cole, Frank Ocean, James Poyser and James Fauntleroy together in the studio? Damn. No word on what’s being worked on, but one thing’s for sure — it’s going be serious.
Check out a few more flicks below. Props to Artium for the heads up.
MTV‘s Rob Markman caught up with No I.D. last week during G.O.O.D. Music’s Pre-VMA party. When asked about what other projects he would be working on in the near future, Dion revealed that he recently spoke to Eminem about hitting the studio together. Excited yet? I am.
In case you didn’t, this won’t be No I.D.’s first journey to the house of Shady. He recently laced Shady Records’ Slaughterhouse with some crazy production for “Get Up” from their new album. Em and Dion, though? Can’t wait to hear what that sounds like.
No I.D.’s behind the boards on this Hours-sampled track from Slaughterhouse’s new album. Damn, this is nice. Slaughter’s Welcome To: OUR House hits stores August 28th, so be sure to cop a few copies.
Reaganomics? Nah, this is Obamanomics. The more things change, the more they stay the same. And Mikkey makes that clear on his latest leak from Castro, hosted by Don Cannon, which drops Monday, August 13.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard Mikk and Young Yoda cook up something new, and this ever-insightful point of view from Mikk is always welcome. I pledge allegiance…
Also, today is Mikkey’s birthday, so make sure to give him a shout on Twitter.
