No I.D. aka Dion Wilson, has been named executive vice president of Capitol Music Group. The news was announced by CMG president Ashley Newton, who said in a press release:
Dion’s vast experience and esteemed stature as both a creative executive and highly influential producer are crucial to our continuing commitment to urban music and artists, I’m absolutely thrilled that he has joined as a key member of the CMG family.
Wilson also commented, saying:
I look forward to working with the entire Capitol team to build on the cultural impact of our music and further expand into the global markets. There is a legacy of great artists and important records at Capitol, and I look forward to helping create more history and building upon the company’s great brand.
No I.D.’s musical credentials run deep, having worked as a producer since the ’90s, starting out on projects from Common and having since worked with the likes of Kanye West, Big Sean, and Drake and producing Logic’s hit song “Everybody.” Wilson is also president of ARTium recordings, a job he’ll continue to do.
No I.D. works quietly behind the scenes but we last spoke to him when he collaborated with Vince Staples, an interview you can read here.
