Who Is Cocaine 80s?

Cocaine 80s is a Hip Hop group formed by Chicago producer No I.D. Born Dion Wilson, he has been a large part of Hip Hop for over twenty years. The beginnings involved mostly working with fellow Chi-Town resident Common, which started in ’92, when they went by the names Common Sense and Immenslope. The relationship blossomed and I.D. produced the bulk of Common’s first three records. After working with Beanie Sigel, Wilson got the opportunity to work with Jay-Z on Blueprint 2. Ten years later, some joints with Kanye, Loso, T.I., Drake, Big Sean, Janet Jackson and he’s now signed with Jay’s Roc Nation label.
