Download Update: Hit-Boy Becomes Hip-Hop Double Threat on “Jay-Z Interview”Posted by Nathan S. on 06/16/12 | Filed under Refined Picks, Downloads, Videos, Hit-Boy
Every rapper dreams of doing one song that puts them on overnight, but it never actually does down like that...unless your Hit-Boy. The man does one throwaway beat, Kanye says, "No, wait, I want to use that" and before he knows it, Jay and Hov are playing his shit (approximately) 179 times in a row at the biggest venues in the world.
Turns out the man can really fucking rhyme too, and like his mentors he's not too shabby at marketing either. New single "Jay-Z Interview", which features an instrumental from another YeHova regular B!nk, proves that the man's a true double threat. We're talking references on everything from Robert Front to Louis Armstrong to Kanye. I don't even want to get caught up in some "is he the next big star?" shit. The hype's going to come, for now I'm just gonna enjoy some unexpected dopeness and keep a serious ear out for more from Hit-Boy.
(Damn, can Derek Fisher get some love?)
