With JAY-Z ready to release his 14th studio album 4:44 exclusively on Tidal and Sprint on June 30, Twitter has been getting hype over rumors that the Brooklyn rapper would be reuniting with No I.D. for the project. Billboard has now learned that No I.D. will be producing the entire album.
No I.D. (real name Dion Wilson) has teamed with Hov for iconic tracks like 2009’s “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune),” the Kanye West and Rihanna collaboration “Run This Town,” and 2013’s “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake, as well as other album cuts off JAY-Z’s American Gangster, Blueprint 2 and Blueprint 3.
Previously the head of A&R at Def Jam Records, Wilson recently moved to Capitol Music Group to serve as executive vice president. He also oversees his own label, ARTium Records — home to Common, Elijah Blake, Jhené Aiko, Cocaine 80’s and Vince Staples.
Reports first stemmed from a tweet posted by filmmaker Chris Black, who helped produce A$AP Rocky’s “Peso” video and directed the visual for Kali Uchis’ “Know What I Want.”
