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.
David Morris, the West Virginia 24-year old goes by the name D-WHY. Residing in and around New York and Los Angeles, the man is making quite the name for himself. And while it sounded clever over Gambino’s “Freaks And Geeks,” it’s the best way to describe this multifaceted artist, “Jay-Z meets J. Christ meets Jay Leno meets J.Crew.”
Cocaine 80s is a Hip Hop group formed by Chicago producer No I.D. Born Dion Wilson, he has been a large part of Hip Hop for over twenty years. The beginnings involved mostly working with fellow Chi-Town resident Common, which started in ’92, when they went by the names Common Sense and Immenslope. The relationship blossomed and I.D. produced the bulk of Common’s first three records. After working with Beanie Sigel, Wilson got the opportunity to work with Jay-Z on Blueprint 2. Ten years later, some joints with Kanye, Loso, T.I., Drake, Big Sean, Janet Jackson and he’s now signed with Jay’s Roc Nation label.
In South Central L.A., the year was 2009 and four emcees joined forces to create Black Hippy. This group consists of four names you may have heard of before, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q.
