No I.D. Talks Candidly About 808′s & Heartbreak

April 13, 2009

Producer and Kanye West mentor No I.D. discusses checking his ego and his initial disagreement with the creative direction of 808′s & Heartbreak, then curiously backs away from any further positive or negative comment about the project.

Notable Quote:
"I didn’t agree with it at first, but when it was done I agreed with what it was… for what it was.  And… now I’m just moving on.  I’m not trying to figure out whether it was right or wrong… right, it sold platinum plus."

I don’t really like 808s that much but I have to give him props for doing something different. He did something what he wanted to do, which more people should start doing instead of conforming to what’s hot.
