No I.D.

Hip Hop DX was able to get some time with critically acclaimed producer, No I.D.. Recently he worked on projects like 808s & Heartbreaks and The Blueprint 3, but he is definitely more well known for his work with Chicago native Common.

Crowned our Producer of the Year for 2009, Chicago-born No I.D. has basically circumnavigated the Hip Hop ocean with his unique musical interpretations and soundscapes. Sixteen years after producing the all time classic "I Used to Love H.E.R." for fellow Chicago brethren Common, Dion Wilson came full circle last year after the trend-killing success of "D.O.A." Demanding critical acclaim on par with the ’94 hit, the most talked about song of the year put the producer extraordinaire in territories new.

Approached by Verve front man Richard Ashcroft, No I.D. found himself recording an abundance of music with the "Bittersweet Symphony" singer, which will be released later this year, projects now being the name of the game for the proclaimed Godfather of Chicago Hip Hop. But projects aren’t the only thing on his mind with a possible four Grammys up for grabs at the end of this month.
