The producer also received nods for his work on Logic and Vic Mensa's albums.
JAY-Z earned the most Grammy Award nominations earlier this week, which proved two things: the rap legend is still at the top of his game and No I.D., who produced the album in its entirety, still has the Midas Touch. No I.D. was nominated for the coveted producer of the year award for his contributions on Hov's 4:44, as well as Logic and Vic Mensa's latest albums. The producer sat down with The New York Times following the news of his nominations and discussed the recognition as well as his thoughts on hip-hop entering mainstream culture.
While many artists might have been anxiously awaiting for the unveiling of the 2018 Grammy Award nominees, the nominations were the last thing on No I.D.'s mind. "I wasn't even thinking about the nominations coming. I was passed out and I heard my phone faintly and I knew I had a lot of messages," he told NYT. "I was like oh, I must have been nominated. But I didn't understand the depth of what had happened."
