Hit-Boy was the producer who produced Nipsey Hussle’s last release before his tragic death. He stopped by the Power 106 #LIFTOFF to discuss the creation of “Racks In The Middle,” what Nipsey Hussle meant to him, the studio sessions with Nip, his new collaborative project with SOBxRBE and more.
After a couple of years without working Nipsey Hussle, the two united for a studio session for Hit-Boy’s first compilation album soon to come. Hit-Boy says Nip loved “Racks In The Middle” so much that he asked to take for his own single. The two began working on the track to which Hit-Boy says was an emotional process where the both cried before the song released.
“I shed a tear for Racks In the Middle when Nip was still here.”
Hit-Boy has had a colorful career producing for others like Drake, JAY-Z, Kanye West, Beyoncé, and many more.
