Beats From No I.D. & Dug Infinite

No I.D. is mostly known  for producing almost all of Common’s classic album ‘Resurrection’, most of  ‘One Day It’ll All Make Sense’, and about half of his debut ‘Can I Borrow A Dollar?’ Along with Dug Infinite, they dropped a very tight album of their own, ‘Accept Your Own And Be Yourself (The Black Album)’ in 1997. No I.D. has gone on to work with the likes of Jermaine Dupri, Jay Z, and Usher in recent years, but of course that’s not the focus here.

The first record here was released in 2001. I copped for eight bucks at a record store that doesn’t know much about Hip Hop, about a month ago. There are a couple of instrumental versions of cuts from their Black Album on here and a couple of others you should recognize,but most of the beats were new to me. If not for anything else,this is well worth copping just for the re-working of  the ‘I Used To Love Her’ beat alone. Not a bad record at all for this century.

The second record here is a bit of a rarity from around 1996, I believe. It was released on Opposition Records as part of an instrumental series along with The Beatnuts and Vic from the ‘Groove Merchants’. If there were more volumes in this series that you know about,please drop a comment. Those were the only three I had and remember seeing back then.
