Jay-Z Interview- Hit-Boy [Official Video]

So yesterday on the Paris stop of the Watch The Throne Tour Jigga and 'Ye broke their own world record by performing their single "Niggas in Paris" TWELVE times. In a row. While I'm not about to post a 45 minute video of that shit, I will shine a little light on the beat master behind the song. After amassing an impressive resume behind the scenes making beats for the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye, Weezy, Kid Cudi, Pusha-T, A$AP Rocky (the list goes on and on) the G.O.O.D. music signee is showing he can rock the mic too. This star studded video gives the feeling that big things are in store for Hit-Boy. We all remember what happened to the last beatsmith-turned-rapper that hung around Jay-Z, right?
