No I.D. may not be the most public of hip-hop figures, but he has a resumé that could match any. A Def Jam executive and widely-respected producer (Nas’ “Daughters,” Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Primetime” and Rick Ross’ “Tears of Joy” are just some of his recent hits, not to mention the entirety of Common’s The Dreamer/The Believer album), so when I.D., real name Dion Wilson, says he wants to work with an artist, it ain’t no pipe dream.
Speaking on the red carpet at a recent G.O.O.D. Music party in Los Angeles, the Chicago beatmaker revealed that he would love to work with perhaps the greatest name not currently in his discography, Eminem. What’s more, it sounds like the pair have already theorized some plans.
“I definitely sat down and spoke with Eminem about working and we agreed to get in the studio and see what we could do,” he told MTV. “He’s one of the best… I think that would be one of the next steps in that lineage of what I’m trying to do.”
