Last week, Irv Gotti returned to the headlines, during his discussions about several topics. Sitting with Method Man, Irv Gotti spoke about Murder Inc., his career, and his future plans. What Irv Gotti would love for his future is a new role at Def Jam, preferably the presidency.
Irv Gotti said Def Jam needs a new president, who actually cares about the artists. The last time Def Jam had this was when Jay-Z was there, according to Irv. Things have changed at Def Jam. Their newest executive is famed producer, No I.D.
Recently, Def Jam’s Vice President of A&R discussed the comments Irv Gotti made. While remaining neutral, No I.D. said he understands where Gotti is coming from. But, speaking about his own role with Def Jam, No I.D. said he was just there to do his job. He said Gotti was just stating his opinion, strongly so.
However, when asked about Irv Gotti being able to run the label, No I.D. said he cannot speak on that. In his opinion, it would be cool for someone to take over as president of Def Jam, but he is not going to say who can or who cannot. Just in case anyone was trying to position him for the role, No I.D. said he is best in the role he was just given, Vice President of A&R.
