There’s no argument that Hit-Boy has been one of rap’s breakout stars this year. Not only collecting major credits for the likes of G.O.O.D. Music (“Clique”), A$AP Rocky (“Goldie”) and Justin Bieber (“Right Here”), the G.O.O.D. Music-aligned beatsmith also debuted his first-ever rap project, HITstory, which spawned just that (see: “Old School Caddy” featuring Kid Cudi).
Now, Hit-Boy is taking his solo career to the next level by signing a management deal with Blueprint Group — the same brand that houses Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. According to the press release, the producer-rapper will be co-managed by Blueprint Group and Fakework Management’s DJ Mormile — both of whom will represent him in touring, digital, branding, film and television.
Sounds like Hit-Boy isn’t just a catchy moniker, after all.
