Producer Hit-Boy was one of the first-time Grammy Awards winners last night (February 10th). The G.O.O.D Music affiliate grabbed an award for “Best Rap Song” for his 2011 Watch The Throne single “Niggas In Paris.” Other producers on the song include Mike Dean, Anthony Kilhoffer and West.
“I have always dreamed of winning a Grammy [Award] and to share the award with two artists that I consider mentors and have tremendous respect for only makes me feel that much more undeserving,” said the Fontana, California native Hit-Boy in a statement. “Thank you Jay-Z and Kanye [West] for giving me the opportunity to create something special with you, I know this is just the beginning. I never would have had a chance to be where I am without my family who has supported me along every step of this journey; you are my inspiration to continue working hard. I cannot believe it, I feel so blessed.”
“Niggas In Paris” has been certified triple-platinum since its release. Last year, Hit-Boy has produced “Come On A Cone” and “I Am Your Leader” for Nicki Minaj, as well as “Clique” for West.
