During his time with G.O.O.D. Music, Hit-Boy produced “Niggas in Paris” for Jay-Z and Kanye West, “Cold” with Kanye and DJ Khaled, “Clique” with Kanye, Jay-Z and Big Sean, and a slew of other tracks.
Despite what would appear to be a very fortuitous relationship, Hit-Boy revealed in an interview with Miss Info at the 2013 BET Awards Radio room that he is no longer affiliated with the house that Yeezy built.
“I got nothin’ but respect for Kanye, [but] I’m no longer a part of G.O.O.D. Music anymore,” he said. “HS87 is where my heart is, that’s what I’m reppin’.”
HS87 refers to Hit-Boy’s crew, which released its debut album All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of via MySpace.
Info asked Hit-Boy whether any specific reason led to his departure from G.O.O.D. Music. “No, just committed by contract. I did what I was supposed to do. I came in and I did six, seven singles for the label, and did what I was supposed to do.”
The producer also briefly commented on Kanye’s latest album, Yeezus. “I love it. It’s great. I think, just sonically, a lot of the things that he’s doing is Kanye. He’s supposed to be doing that.”
