Audio: No I.D. Drops Two New Instrumentals - "God Bless The Native Americans 2" + "Just Because"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Along with his duties as Def Jam's executive Vice President, Chicago producer No I.D. has kept himself busy this year, executive producing Nas' Life Is Good and working with Jhene Aiko on his Artium Recordings label--as well as keeping up with his regular productions for some of hip-hop's best. Somehow, he still manages to find the time to create these two brand new instrumentals, titled "God Bless The Native Americans 2" and "Just Because," respectively. The first track hits hard with a punchy snare and mellow synth, while the second takes a classic hip-hop boom bap and melts it into a futuristic, Katamari-esque beat. Take a listen below and then cast your vote as to who you think could spit the beautiful-est bars over these monsters.
