Two of Chicago’s best-known veteran producers have teamed up to put together a collection of their previously unreleased productions, in order to determine the Chi-Town beatmaker king. In one corner we have No I.D., who helped bring both Common and Kanye West to the proverbial rap spotlight. In the other corner is The Legendary Traxster, best known for his frequent work with the Chi’s more hardcore acts, Twista and Do or Die. Included in the set is Get It Up, Traxster and Twista’s ode to the big spender lifestyle, featuring typical hometown fast-paced flows from both on top of Trax’s dark, jazzy board work. The No I.D. vs. Traxster mixtape and Traxster’s new full-length album, The Return of Gangsta Music, are both currently available for exclusive online download.
