Hits Since ’87 Inc. is a group of artists and producers brought together by Chauncey Hollis, aka Hit-Boy. Based out of California, these boys are starting to make quite the name for themselves. With the recent release of their first compilation record, All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of, I figured it was time to write about them. You can read all about Hit-Boy here, for the rest of the group, hit the jump.
The young producer/rapper joined Sway In The Morning to throw down a couple freestyles. Chauncey Hollis (Hit-Boy) showed great poise, delivery was confident, annunciation was perfect, the jabs and metaphors were crisp and clever.
From the creator of “Ni**as In Paris,” comes a true story about a mixtape. The unstoppable producer Chauncey Hollis who goes by the name Hit-Boy, has done the unthinkable. A incredibly talented producer gone successful rapper. You’ve all heard of a man name Kanye West right? Well he first gained acclaim from his productions off Jay-Z The Blueprint. Now West has platinum rap records and has ventured into the movie directing scene. Needless to say, do not stop at one dream. Hit-Boy has be turning out banger after banger for a long list of A-class artists. 3 weeks ago, Hit dropped a track called “Jay-Z Interview,” and for the first time, we got a taste of what he could do, minus the keys. After hopping on a track with fellow G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi The Prynce and another with D-WHY, it was clear to see the Boy was comfortable behind the mic. Now we are here, August 7th, 2012 and it’s time to download HITstory, the free mixtape from Hit-Boy. It features Kid Cudi, Big Sean, John Legend, Bun B, Chip Tha Ripper & Stacy Barthe.
