Hit-Boy brought the hits to G.O.O.D. Music and now he’s leaving Kanye West’s label to focus on his own imprint, Hit Since 87.
“I got nothin’ but respect for Kanye, [but] I’m no longer a part of G.O.O.D. Music anymore,” the “Ni—as in Paris” producer told Miss Info in an exclusive interview during the 2013 BET Awards. “HS87 is where my heart is, that’s what I’m reppin’.”
And while the HITstory MC is no longer with the “Clique,” he says like Kid Cudi, who left back in April, there’s no ill will between them. “[I was] just committed by contract. I did what I was supposed to do,” he said. “I came in and I did six, seven singles for the label, and did what I was supposed to do.”
On his way out the door, the beat maestro born Chauncey Hollis also let on that he is a big fan of Yeezy’s Yeezus LP. “I love it. It’s great. I think, just sonically, a lot of the things that he’s doing is Kanye,” Hit-Boy said. “He’s supposed to be doing that.”
