Hit-Boy Leaves G.O.O.D. Music
Following in the footsteps of Kid Cudi, producer/rapper Hit-Boy has announced his departure from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. The Fontana, California native shared the news during an interview with Miss Info at the 2013 BET Awards radio room in Los Angeles on Friday (June 28).
Hit-Boy assured fans that there are no hard feelings between himself and Ye; his contract with the label had simply come to an end. The super producer’s focus now lies with his HS87 (Hits Since 1987) crew, which he signed as an imprint under Interscope Records as part of his solo deal last year.
“I got nothing but respect for Kanye, [but] I’m no longer a part of G.O.O.D. Music anymore. HS87 is where my heart is, that’s what I’m repping. I committed [to] my contract, I did what I was supposed to do, I came in and I did six, seven singles for the label and just did what I was supposed to do.”
Kanye signed Hit-Boy to G.O.O.D. Music in 2011, where he produced the ‘Watch The Throne’ mega hit, “N****s In Paris,” as well as tracks on the label’s ‘Cruel Summer’ compilation. He also released his debut solo rap project, ‘HITstory,’ last year.
