Hit-Boy Claims “Kanye Stopped Picking My Beats Because I Worked With Beyonce” / Rapper Responds

Published: Wednesday 16th Sep 2020 by Sam

Kanye West‘s rant about his record contract have attracted widespread attention – including word from producer Hit-Boy.

As reported, Ye bemoaned what he deems unfair terms and he even went as far as to urinate on his own GRAMMY Award.

Now, the ‘N*ggas In Paris’ producer has weighed-in with his take.

And while he slams “slave” deals and unpacks his own predicament, he made a shock revelation about West.

For, he alleges that the MC “told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé.”

His words (and Yeezy’s response) below…

“I haven’t been a fan of Kanye on a personal/ human level since he told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé. this is after I produced niggas in paris , clique, and a myriad of other songs / projects for him and his label GOOD Music in the 2 years I was signed with them.

This tweet is something I can agree with though. @umpg has held me in what the last 3 lawyers Ive hired have referred to as the “worst publishing contact they’ve ever seen” since I was 19 years old. Im 33 now and have multiple Grammys, produced a lot of your favorite artists biggest songs on top of turning in over 450+ records since I first signed and @umpg still doesnt have it in them to simply be fair. If they’re doing this to me with all I’ve accomplished through hard work I can only imagine the kids who don’t have big placements/ proper guidance.

If I have to be the one to get blackballed for telling the truth and trying to set the next generation free then so be it. Btw I produced 10+ joints on the CURRENT number one album in the country D2. @umpg @polowdadon @jodyagerson @iamwalterjones and the company who’s helping me on the management side @rocnation let’s fix this. Slave deals are still very real /rampant in 2020. @universalmusicgroup”

Hit-Boy produced ‘Partition’ for Bey’s 2013 self-titled album, which arrived just before West problematically took public aim at The Carters.

As for West’s response, he said:

“Hi guys. Trust me we will not stop … Hit-Boy first to stand up … I didn’t have a problem with him producing for Beyoncé … I had a problem with the fact he was signed to me and I didn’t know but I knew Jay and Beyoncé and Hit-Boy … Just for clarity.”

Sigh.

    How can someone be signed to your label for 2 years doing projects with you and you don’t know? And there is nothing piping hot about a one sided beef Beyoncé been paying him dust his still obsessed years later.

    Help me out, Kanye…why is it important that you know that someone you have under contract is doing their job? He is a producer, that’s what they do isn’t it? Was your contract EXCLUSIVE? Just ugh….come get ’em somebody.
