This past summer, fans were disappointed to learn that the collaboration between Nas and Frank Ocean titled “No Such Thing As a White Jesus” had been lost when producer Hit-Boy’s hard drive has mistakenly taken from him. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, Hit-Boy said fans may finally be able to hear the track.
Hit-Boy explained that the hard drive, which was returned to the “N—-s in Paris” producer this past November, was mixed-up with some of Kanye West’s engineers’ hard drives. With the hard drive now in his possession, however, Hit-Boy said he’s been working with Nas’ manager to find a proper avenue through which to release the song.
“[The hard drive] got mixed up with some drives that Kanye’s engineers had, and they finally they sent it back and I got the files now,” he said. “Nas’ manager reached out, and he’s excited. I don’t know exactly what’s gonna happen with it yet, but that song is gonna be heard by the world one day.”
He continued, “Me and Frank went in the studio a while ago and he just wrote the hook, just blindly, we just wanted to create. He played it for Nas, and as soon as he played it he texted me and was like, ‘Yo, Nas went crazy’…it’s different from what you’re used to from me as for as far as the newer joints, as far as the energy joints. It’s like a real-life song.”
