Hit Boy released his video “Jay-Z Interview,” a title that will get the attention of any hip-hop connoisseur. Why? Jay rarely speaks to the press unless it’s an event. This one is the birth of Hit-Boy’s rap career. See, Jigga’s got other seedlings he’s planted aside from the one sprouted from the womb of Beyoncé. Hit-Boy is actually his other golden child, now setting course on his rap career after shadowing Jay-Z as a producer for such hits like “N****s In Paris” and A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie.”
In “Jay-Z Interview,” directed by Jalani Fresh you’ll see Hit-Boy being introduced to the world by Jay-Z through a collage of random clips of his travels overseas. Comparing Hit Boy to Kanye West is an unavoidable comparison, given his transition from beatmaker to MC through the Roc-A-Fella camp. Plus his debut has notes of “Through the Wire.” That video was about crowning the next rap royalty. Years later, now we’re watching The Throne do it again.
