Hit-boy, known for his amazing production, notably “N*ggas in Paris” has decided to come out rappin and he’s really good, check out his new mixtape, HITstory.
We knew the beats were gonna be great but what surprised me the most was his ability to tell a story and not come off cheesy or forced. You get that he’s had a passion for music ever since he was young and over came a lot of obstacles, mostly non-believers, to get where he is.
Some of the things I love about his lyrics remind me of Game in his early albums where he took us through his own experiences using hip hop references to set timelines paralleled with his own life. Which really lets the listener know, he’s a student of hip hop.
After you digest these lyrics I think you’ll come to the same conclusions with Hit-boy.
Something else to note, Hit-boy is one of the hottest producers in the game right now. Which means, if he wanted every A-List rapper or singer on a track to bring attention to this project, he could. But, he’s chosen to keep within his own circles.
It tells me he’s really trying to push himself as an artist as organically as possible.
This kid has a story to tell. Must download.
