Hit-Boy has released a handful of well-received singles this year, including “Corsa” by Dom Kennedy, “Scholar” with Devin Morrison and 24Hrs, and “Fireproof,” which premiered exclusively earlier this summer. This past weekend, the Pasadena-born producer and artist released his latest single, “Tony Fontana III.” Curren$y contributed an assist and the song was produced by EightSix Productions.
In addition to releasing the single, the Grammy award-winning hitmaker shared a photo on Instagram indicating that there will be a full joint album between him and CurrenSy. “Not [gon’] lie. It may just be that Spitta and Hit-Boy’s upcoming album can save the universe,” read the tweet that accompanied his post.
As a result of his busy schedule behind the boards this year, Hit-Boy has collaborated on several projects, including Bulletproof Soul featuring Pacman Da Gunman and HITGIRL alongside Dreezy. Moreover, he produced “Thique” on Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE album, which he later revealed that he had been keeping for nearly eight years. Together with Nas, he released the Magic album in 2021, and also teamed up with Big Sean to release the What You Expect EP the following year.
The producer of “Feeling Myself” recently discussed why he is more determined than ever before to personalize his work. “It has been common for people to play my music at events and in clubs, and they seem to love it, so I would like to implement my own unique version of performing the music that I have created, rather than just observing it from the outside,” he said. “For my compositions, as well as my performances, I would like to keep the music organic and natural in nature since I am discussing things that are happening in my life, from my son to my family.”
