Hit-Boy Reacts to Grammy Nod, Talks Working With Nas & J. Lo & More | Billboard News

Hit-Boy reacts to his Grammy nomination, talks about self-releasing music, what sets him apart from other producers, and working with artists such as Nas and Jennifer Lopez. His father, Big Hit, joins in on the conversation and talks about navigating the music industry after spending 12 years in prison, what his life was like while serving his sentence and what their relationship is like now that he is out.

Big Hit:
Guess I’m to blame, busting that superstar DNA. Big Hit came. Hit-Boy came. Hit-Boy came, C III came. The best is yet to come.

Hit-Boy:
Yo, yo. It’s Hit-Boy.

Big Hit:
It’s Big Hit.

Hit-Boy & Big Hit:
You’re watching Billboard News.

Tetris Kelly:
Hey, it’s Tetris with Billboard News, and I have the honor of being with a man that has so many hits, it’s his name. Hit-Boy, man. What’s up? How’s it going?

Hit-Boy:
I’m good, man.

Tetris Kelly:
Let’s talk about this Grammy nomination. Your 11th nomination — producer of the year non-classical. Does it hit any different on your 11th time?

Hit-Boy:
Oh, man. It’s crazy because I didn’t expect to … I mean I don’t have no expectations when it comes to, like, awards and stuff like that. But just even being in the nominations, it just hit me this year just because this whole year, I’ve been kind of focusing on things that I can control, which was my own projects, working with my dad, put out a project with Musiq Soulchild, so everything that you know was under me being nominated was mostly stuff that, you know, I really put my heart and soul into, so it did hit different.

Tetris Kelly:
And then, I mean, you’ve worked on so many projects this year like you said. How do you feel you stack up when you’re like looking at “I’m going up against Jack Antonoff, you know, my homie from Georgia, Metro Boomin,” like, what do you feel sets you apart as a producer?
