Over the years, Hit-Boy has cemented himself as one of the greatest modern-day producers in the music industry, making beats for the likes of Don Toliver, Drake, Big Sean and fellow Grammy-award winner Nas. The collaborations he’s scored have seemingly sparked an interest and desire to create more art, specifically with some more of hip hop’s veterans. During a recent interview with Hot New Hip Hop, Hit-Boy revealed that he would love to produce a full-length project for Lil Wayne.

“I’m trying to do a Wayne album! One song is cool, but we’ve got a song that’s four times platinum, bro. Pull up. You know what I’m saying? Simple math,” he said, listing a few more artists with whom he’d love to release a collaborative project.

“I’ll do an album with Tupac or Biggie, that would be crazy. Right now, JAY-Z. That would be crazy too,” he added. “Drake, Kendrick, Roddy [Ricch], send me whoever and they’re going to be straight.”

While Hit-Boy waits for his manifestations to come to life, he already has enough Cordae songs to put together a few EPs.

“Again, I’ve probably got like an EP’s worth of shit with Cordae,” the producer told HNHH. “You know, he’s a rapper, rapper, so he freestyles like to every beat. Then he’ll catch a vibe and be like, ‘Yeah this the one. Let’s load this up or I’m going to take this with me and do it at my studio.’ That’s what happened. He started ‘Sinister’ at my studio, recorded a part of it, took it with him and just flushed it out then put Wayne on it.”

Hit-Boy’s work on King’s Disease II is up for a Grammy award in the recently-postponed show. He has also been nominated for Producer of the Year. During the interview, he opened up about the latter nomination and how it felt to be the only Black producer to get a nod.

“It’s just something that stuck out to me. A lot of us don’t get that opportunity. To even be talked about and ranked amongst people that are doing great things. Most of the people probably had bigger commercial radio records,” he said. “I don’t know if they had as much value and as much whatever as me, but everybody is in their own world and doing what they’re supposed to do. It ain’t even a thing where I’m trying to make it a Black thing or whatever the case is. It just was a fact.”
