Hit-Boy has been named the executive producer on Nas’ highly anticipated, forthcoming project. It is slated to arrive August 21st and is one of the few projects where Hit-Boy will take on the executive producer role this year.
Without giving too much away about Nas’ release, Hit-Boy says “August 21st will be a day to remember.”
After earning his second GRAMMY win for his work on “Racks In The Middle,” Hit-Boy is showing no signs of slowing down - recently releasing a joint album, Also Known as Courtesy of Half-A-Mil, with Dom Kennedy, previewing unreleased tracks in the Verzuz beat battle and working late in the studio with the likes of Big Sean and Benny The Butcher.
As one of the music industry’s most sought out hip-hop producers, the California-bred Hit-Boy has more than earned his moniker. Born Chauncey Hollis, the 33-year-old multi-hyphenate artist from Pasadena and the neighboring Inland Empire, boasts an impressive roster of credits, from wielding pop smashes for Beyoncé, Rihanna and Ariana Grande to producing hit records for Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and more over his thirteen plus years in the industry. As a rapper and songwriter in his own right, Hit-Boy has recorded and released seven mixtapes and three collaborative albums, and taken home a 2020 Best Rap Performance Grammy for his appearance on the late Nipsey Hussle’s “Racks In The Middle” alongside breakout rap star Roddy Ricch.
