Hit-Boy

After crafting beats for hits by the Throne, Nicki Minaj and others, Hit-Boy is one of the most in-demand producers in the rap world. But prospective customers have to compete for the SoCal producer's beats with Hit-Boy himself. Tracing the footsteps of his mentor, Kanye West, HB released a free album, HITstory, online in 2012.
