This extended 2015 interview with producer No I.D. was an "Up Close & Personal" event hosted by Chicago Chapter and the Producers and Engineers Wing, taking us behind the scenes with one of hip-hop and rap's most influential cultural figures. At the 52nd GRAMMY Awards he won Best Rap Song for his co-write on "Run This Town" with Jeff Bhasker, Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kanye West. Born Ernest Dion Wilson, he takes us along on his journey from Chicago roots to a DJ in the Chicago house music scene "making tracks." But for No I.D. music is not about making "hits," it's about making connections. "I don't care about hits, I care about connections," said No I.D. "I care about making a lifelong fan."
