In his relatively young career, G.O.O.D. Music's Hit-Boy has yet to put a foot wrong—musically speaking, anyway. Back in August, the producer/rapper held his hands high and confessed that he had lost a hard drive containing one very exciting record: "No Such Thing As White Jesus," a collaboration between Nas and Frank Ocean.
While we've all been pretty bummed about it these past few months, it appears that we might just be blessed with this holy piece of music after all. Moments ago, Hit-Boy tweeted out that his manager, Ricky Anderson (Kanye West's cousin) has finally found the lost equipment containing said song (hallelujah!) What's more, he promised plenty more hits on the "infamous blue drive."
It's a miracle. @rickyanderson found the infamous blue drive with the vocals from the Nas/frank ocean pro tools session and many more hits.— Hit-Boy (@Hit_Boy) November 8, 2012
That drive had been missing for 7 months. The drive was packed up with Kanye equipment from some sessions I had with him in April.— Hit-Boy (@Hit_Boy) November 8, 2012

We suggest you don't get too excited about the news, though (I know, it's hard). Speaking to Hip-Hop Wired, Hit-Boy didn't give any indication when the track will actually surface. Knowing how hectic artists' schedules are these days—especially for stars like Nas and Frank—we could be twiddling our thumbs for a while. At least we still have the trio's respective projects, Life Is Good, channel ORANGE and HITstory, to hold us over.
