Hit-Boy’s production credits were already impressive prior to December 2010 as he had worked with the likes of 50 Cent, Eminem, and Snoop Dogg. But it was then that he created a permanent space on our radar thanks to his work on Kanye West’s “Christmas in Harlem.” Hit-Boy impressed more than just our writing staff and readers, though. Apparently Yeezy was taken by the Fontana, Calif. producer’s work and began working on a deal to sign him to G.O.O.D. Music roster. Hit-Boy confirmed his placement on the label a few days ago in an interview with Vibe.
Read a snippet of their chat below and peep the rest here.
VIBE.com: You finally signed to G.O.O.D Music, huh [Laughs]?
Hit-Boy: Yeah, man it’s definitely official. We’ve got a lot of things going with Kanye West right now. Just be on the lookout. I’m a part of the production team, so I’ll be working on various projects over there, pretty much everybody from Cudi to ‘Ye to Big Sean—everybody.
