No I.D. Responds To Irv Gotti's Campaign For Def Jam Presidency [Audio]


No I.D. Weighs In On Irv Gotti’s Bid For Def Jam Presidency

Def Jam Vice President No I.D. called in to WGCI’s The Morning Riot and was asked about Irv Gotti’s recent rant on MTV lobbying for the presidential position at Def Jam.

Irv said that someone should be brought in that can make a change and keep the brand alive even if it’s not him. No I.D. doesn’t feel like the comments were a shot at him and he’s focused on doing his job which includes producing Common’s new album.

While he commented that albums today are more like compilations with a bunch of artists and producers that never met each other, he also responded to Irv’s opinion when he was asked if he thought Gotti would be a good choice for the company.

“I can’t say. That’s what I mean by I won’t get into whether he can or cant, because who’s to say who can and can’t? it would be cool to have somebody in that position, but me, I’ma just stay in my position and do the best that I can do for music in general.”

    that common album is going to tank (not to take away from common’s talent as an artist but his last album sales were subpar after the one before it did extremely well). this is not a good look for no i.d. if this is the first project he’s overseeing as an executive at Def Jam. structural change is definitely needed, but the solution is not choosing the same old players who have been around for 15, 20, 25+ years and haven’t done anything recently.
