Hit-Boy Explains Kanye West & Jay-Z's Secrecy Surrounding Projects
Hit-Boy explains that working with Kanye West and Jay-Z means that you don't talk about upcoming projects.
Kanye West and Jay-Z have a tendency to keep mum about their upcoming projects – a trait that extends to those that work with them. During an interview with Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning, producer Hit-Boy confirmed that he has a few records on G.O.O.D. Music’s upcoming compilation Cruel Summer (September 18th) but wouldn’t elaborate on who is featured on the record.
“I did a couple of joints on there. I feel the same way I felt when I knew I had some shit coming out on Watch the Throne, is the way I feel about Cruel Summer. It’s going to change my life again,” he said, giving pause when pressed for features. “It’s a few.”
Hit-Boy said that Jay and ‘Ye make it known that you aren’t supposed to talk about projects that are in motion, stating that they don’t give a speech demanding secrecy but are forthright about protecting their music. “It’s kind of like after a while, you get known [that] it’s secrecy,” he continued. “It’s not a real speech but niggas let you know, don’t say shit.”
