Legendary Hip Hop producer No I.D. recently sold his entire music catalog to Hipgnosis Sounds. The company has reportedly acquired the worldwide copyrights and publishing royalties to a catalog that includes classic hits from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Rihanna, Big Sean, Ed Sheeran, Common and many more.
While No I.D. didn't disclose how much he sold his catalog for, he offered praise to Hipgnosis Sounds for having "the best intentions for the artist and the creators." Hipgnosis Sounds is also the company that acquired Timbaland's catalog in October 2019.
"The words No I.D. are a stamp of excellence on any album," said Hipgnosis Founder Merck Mercuriadis. "From Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus to Jay-Z’s astonishing run from American Gangster through The Blueprint 3, Magna Carta Holy Grail and 4:44, Dion has been in the middle of everything that is great about Hip Hop for more than two decades. He is a special creator and everyone in the Hipgnosis Family is proud to have him standing next to us."
No I.D. was most recently the Executive Producer for Logic's final album No Pressure.
