Hit boy is at the pinnacle of his career having executive produced Nas’ latest release because “King’s Disease,” as well as Big Sean’s “D2” is standing at number 1 at present. Hit boy is someone whom himself makes thrust into the conversation this week by answering to one tweet of Kanye West’s. the tweet was regarding that the artists should be entitled to ownership to master recordings. In the views of that post, he tweeted that I need to see contracts of everyone at Universal and Sony. In addition, he says that I’m going to watch my people be enslaved, and just for my people I’m putting my life to the line.
This answer of hit boy to West is very much revealing. Writing to 452,000 followers, the multiple Grammy winner noted that I’m very much agreeing with West. despite an acrimonious split the two had following Hit-Boy’s work with Beyonce and they also went in detail about what they described the worst publishing contract that lawyers have ever seen. West who is having publishing with Sony responded to the post of hit boy with a quote tweet let’s go hit the boy.

I haven’t been a fan of Kanye on a personal/ human level since he told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé. this is after I produced niggas in paris , clique, and a myriad of other songs / projects for him and his label GOOD Music in the 2 years I was signed with them. This tweet is something I can agree with though. @umpg has held me in what the last 3 lawyers Ive hired have referred to as the “worst publishing contact they’ve ever seen” since I was 19 years old. Im 33 now and have multiple Grammys, produced a lot of your favorite artists biggest songs on top of turning in over 450+ records since I first signed and @umpg still doesnt have it in them to simply be fair. If they’re doing this to me with all I’ve accomplished through hard work I can only imagine the kids who don’t have big placements/ proper guidance. If I have to be the one to get blackballed for telling the truth and trying to set the next generation free then so be it. Btw I produced 10+ joints on the CURRENT number one album in the country D2. @umpg @polowdadon @jodyagerson @iamwalterjones and the company who’s helping me on the management side @rocnation let’s fix this. Slave deals are still very real /rampant in 2020. @universalmusicgroup
Asked to respond, UMPG says in a statement that we pride ourselves on our industry-leading track record of putting songwriters first and further helping them to achieve their creative and commercial goals. Hit boy is one of the best and enormously talented songwriters whose relationship we value. We have been engaged in a dialogue, will address his concerns, and will also continue to do this till the time a reasonable solution gets achieved. After all this hit boy adds I am one year out of school and have signed a deal that I am still in. in addition, he says I never got the opportunity to make my own decisions but have full control over how I can move my career on.
