1. Let No I.D. handle the bulk of the album's production.
On Nas' last album, Life Is Good, Nas turned over the reins to No I.D. and let him produce five songs on it. And that did two things for Nas. One, it helped the album remain consistent and cohesive thanks to the fact that he had one producer handling nearly half of the album's production. And two, it allowed him to take some chances elsewhere, which, for the most part, paid off and made Life Is Good one of his better albums. So since that worked on his last album, why change the formula? No I.D. needs to be all over Nas' new project.
