No ID Reveals The Making of Jay Z’s “D.O.A.”

July 17, 2009

No ID discusses the making of Jay Z’s "D.O.A." including the debate leading up to the concept, song structure, emotion, and drum programming.

Notable Quote:
"I wanted to get as close to authentic 90′s style hip-hop without being limited with 90′s style programming of drums.  It took a lot of effort.  I didn’t just loop that record up."

The track is good, but I still like the original sample more.

Since Takeover. Hell No
To me Takeover isnt even 1 of the best songs on BP 1.
D.O.A. is the best song since No Hook i would say.

It’s soooo ironic that Kanye came up with the idea that Jay-Z should attack everything considered “not Hip-Hop” being that 808s & Heartbreaks was essentially a non-traditional Hip-Hop album done by a Hip-Hop artist. Then he tell Jay-Z he’s going “too far?” Haha! This discussion of what is and ain’t Hip-Hop needs to be fleshed out. It would make for very interesting debate.

Here is the definition of Hip Hop.MONEY.Whatever you can rap ‘sing’ yell ‘dance’ and gimmic to sell records.Don’t ask if its what I think.Im just stating the facts.If you don’t agree then why is it that there is alot of real Hip Hop out there but they play the same rotation on the radio everyday all day then ?
