Famed producer steps into the spotlight with a smash of his own.
Most likely, your iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, or whatever you use is filled to the brim with Hit-Boy's music. The Grammy Award-winning rapper and producer is behind smashes like "N****s in Paris," "Drop the World," "Clique," "XO," "Trophies," and many more—being a go-to for everybody from Jay-Z and Kanye West to Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé. Finally, the world gets his formal debut single "Stay Up" [feat. Sage the Gemini and K Roosevelt] and available now through his own Hits Since '87 (HS87) label via Interscope.
"Stay Up" definitely measures up to that track record. Over sizzling propulsive production, he goes to town with impressive bars and a massive hook. Meanwhile, he feels right at home behind the mic trading verses with Sage the Gemini and K Roosevelt. It's the perfect summer anthem and a new Cali calling card. It also hints at much bigger things to come and even more hits.
