Anyone who encountered Jay-Z will say he is the most-mysterious person they have ever met. Usually, the people who manage to get close to Jay-Z end up reaching him through the music. Hit-Boy produced the last major Jay-Z hit in the form of the “Niggas in Paris” track with Kanye West off Watch the Throne.
“Niggas in Paris” helped to make Hit-Boy into a major producer in the game. In addition to production, Hit-Boy has his label, Hits Since ’87 and, on top of that, his own rap career. A lot of people have begun to catch on to the label and it is full of talented artists.
Hit-Boy recently stopped by Shade 45 to visit Sway Calloway on “Sway in the Morning.” In the latest part of their interview, both Hit-Boy and Sway discuss their encounters with Jay-Z. This may never happen again, but Jay-Z is making his media rounds and is being very open and candid.
