No I.D. is undoubtedly one of the best producers in music—a sentiment he's proven time and time again over the past 25 years he's been in the game.

So with news that the Chicago beatsmith produced JAY-Z's much-anticipated album, 4:44 in its entirety, people were rightfully excited.

No I.D. first came to the forefront as the go-to producer for fellow Chicagoan Common, helming the rapper’s acclaimed projects, including Resurrection and Like Water for Chocolate. No I.D. is a godfather of Chicago hip-hop, and worked under Jermaine Dupri in the mid-1990s before mentoring fellow Chicago production wiz, Kanye West.

And now that Jay's album has actually arrived, the internet is exploding because the veteran producer elevated the rap icon's latest, showing that Jay still has it, especially when he's able to craft an album in its entirety with a producer who clearly is not only one of the best to ever do it, but gets his vision.

Take look at the responses to No I.D.'s production on Jay's new album below.
