Making the transition to Def Jam as a label executive made it much easier for No I.D. to work with Nas. This past Tuesday, Nas released his long-awaited tenth studio album, Life is Good, which has been a critical success. For various reasons, Nas has received credit for his new body of work.
Two days after the release of Life is Good, the discussion about the project continues, as those involved are still discussing the album. Nas is projected to debut on top of Billboard and is expected to sell over 120,000 copies in his first week. Along with the chart-topping success has come strong critical feedback.
XXL spoke to No I.D. about working with Nas on Life is Good. The popular single, “Daughters,” is among his contributions to the album. While he cannot explain exactly how their work came to be, No I.D. did say they held several sessions. In the end, he produced arguably the most-notable song off the album.
