Hit-Boy: From Struggling Producer to Grammy-winner

California’s Hit-Boy aka Chauncey Hollis is best known for producing Kanye West and JAY Z’s “N#ggas in Paris,” Kanye’s “Clique” and will.i.am’s “Scream & Shout.” Building on his previous success, the California-based producer and rapper is now prepping a forthcoming collaboration project “We the Plug” in addition to his debut solo album.
It wasn’t an easy path to success for Hit-Boy though. In a new video from All Def Digital, the Grammy-winning producer shares his story of struggle and triumph which many up-and-coming artists will find inspiring. He also describes the vision behind his Interscope-affiliated label HS87 and what to expect from him in the future.
