Hit-Boy: I'm Retiring From Music Production

Hits Since '87 founder unplugs from one part of his career.

Published November 13, 2014

Hit-Boy is jumping off the production train and officially retiring from that side of the music business. The 27-year-old, who is known for furnishing beats to the likes of Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Chris Brown and more, tweeted Wednesday (Nov. 12), “I retired from music industry production last night.”

The new chapter isn’t about leaving music altogether, it’s “plug bidness,” according to another tweet of his likely referencing his HS87 clique and record label.   

Hit-Boy told BET.com back in June that starting the label was about constructing a home for the “rejects.” “We're all the kids that nobody wanted to f**k with and they called 'wack' and whatever,” he explained. “We're just coming together and making the best s**t we can, and it's flourishing and it's winning.”

The team — which includes his father — released their first album, We the Plug, in May.
