Beats are causing Hit-Boy contention.
On a new freestyle, the super-producer who has produced songs for Nas, Drake, and Jay-Z calls out Metro Boomin, Southside, Mustard, and Hitmaka. Rory shared the video, in which a self-assured Hit-Boy recited names and questioned the adaptability of his peers.
He says of Metro, who recently sold a portion of his catalog for a reported $70 million, “I don’t really know dude, he seem like a cool cat / But I never once heard Metro Boomin do boom-bap.”
He additionally had smoke for Southside: ” I swerve in every lane with an 808 when I’m drunk, and I’ve never heard a Southside beat without one.
Hitmaka stated this week in an interview with “The Breakfast Club” that he had more radio hits than his fellow beatmaker.
“Obviously, I’m on the radio. Hit-Kid isn’t on the radio,” Hitmaka said prior to considering Hit-Kid a “incredible maker.”
He continued, “I know it’s gotta be frustrating with him ’cause my name is so similar if you play the soundtrack to your life for the last four to five years on radio.”
Hit-Boy is getting ready for his next big release, Victims & Villains, a joint album with Musiq Soulchild, which comes out tonight.
