Hit-Boy Believes He Will Win Producer of the Year at 2024 GRAMMYs

Hit-Boy

Hit-Boy is one of five Producer of the Year nominees at the 2024 Grammys. But if you ask him, it’s already in the bag. TMZ caught up with Hit-Boy, who revealed he wants to win this time.

“You just gotta look at the discog I went crazy on albums, really giving people a sound so we’ll see,” Hit-Boy said.

You can hear it below.

One of the testaments to Hit-Boy’s year is his work with Nas. Nas and Hit-Boy have concluded their two rap trilogies, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be collaborations in the future. Speaking in a clip shared on Instagram, Nas stated he now knows he could return to create more together.

“For me, there’s an emotional moment because to complete something beyond what you thought you were even working on, we didn’t know we’d do six albums,” said Nas. “So to be at this point, it’s satisfying, it’s gratifying, it’s a feeling of accomplishment on another level for myself as an MC, and I’m lucky enough to work with some of the greatest producers in the world.”

City Girls Unveil Cover Art for Upcoming Album ‘RAW,’ Set to Release Oct. 20

City Girls Unveil Cover Art for Upcoming Album 'RAW'

City Girls, the dynamic hip-hop duo, have revealed the captivating cover art for their eagerly anticipated third full-length album, RAW. The album, set for release this Friday on Quality Control Music/Motown, is a significant milestone as it’s their third raw, authentic, and unfiltered record and their first since JT’s return.

JT and Yung Miami continue to be the voice of city girls and boys worldwide, expressing precisely what’s on their minds (often what others wish they could say) in their lyrics and music. Their unapologetic approach has garnered them over 15 billion combined streams, solidifying their status as hip-hop powerhouses.

Fans can look forward to “RAW” as it promises to be an unfiltered journey into the world of City Girls, showcasing their signature straight-talking style and unwavering authenticity.

While on the red carpet for the BET Hip-Hop Awards, Yung Miami and JT previously revealed their forthcoming release will be RAW(Real Ass Whores).

In August, City Girls released “Face Down” via Quality Control Music / Motown.

This marks their third brash, straight-talking single this summer, as the Miami rappers’ third studio album is nearly arriving. In June City Girls’ JT and Yung Miami gave the world the ‘rich, young and pretty bitch anthem’ “I Need A Thug”, followed by the clever word-play of the “Pinata single. In addition JT’s “No Bars” came last month, as well as being prominently featured on Diddy’s “Act Bad (featuring City Girls and Fabolous).”

Wasting no time swaggering into summer, they have also played festivals such as Rolling Lou’s California and Miami and Sumer Jam Houston. City Girls’ last album came back in June 2020, which was “City On Lock.” At the time, that project went on to debut at number 29 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was led by hit singles such as “Jobs” and “P**** Talk” featuring Doja Cat.

Killer Mike Announces New Solo LP ‘Michael’, Drops “Don’t Let The Devil” Single

Screen Shot 2023 04 20 at 10.19.37 PM

Killer Mike is celebrating his birthday by formally launching the countdown for his new solo album MICHAEL via the release of “Don’t Let The Devil (feat EL-P & thankugoodsir).” MICHAEL marks the celebrated MCs first solo project since 2012’s critically lauded R.A.P. Music and serves as an introduction to the totality of Michael Render, a lifelong rap fiend whose consciousness is seeped in the sounds of community that raised him – multiple eras of southern rap flows, Sunday church service, and barbershop discourse. Speaking on his most autobiographical and independent album to date, Mike states “RTJ is the X-Men, this is my Logan.” For the new single Mike linked with his Run The Jewels partner in rhyme EL-P, trading verses over a lilting soul loop produced by No I.D., EL-P, & Little Shalimar. “My favorite group (US) with my favorite producers! It’s our 10 year anniversary and MICHAEL is an origin story so I wanted to start w/ El.”

“DON’T LET THE DEVIL” arrives in the wake of RTJ announcing a 10 year anniversary run this Fall, the release of their collaborative sneakers with Nike this week, and Mike’s recent appearance at SXSW, where he performed an intimate career-spanning show at Stubb’s flanked by a choir, and previewed several new songs that are expected to appear on the Atlanta MC’s new album (read more here). He further brought the album to life at a private listening event in NYC this past Monday, where a couple hundred attendees crowded into St. Ann’s & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn to hear Mike present the album in his own words.
