Hit-Boy Goes Hard On A “Stillmatic” Freestyle

Hit-Boy has already cemented himself as a legendary producer. His production credentials include A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle,” and Pusha T’s “My God.” Recently, he’s been on a roll working with Nas, producing much of King’s Disease, King’s Disease II, and Magic.So it’s no surprise that when he was asked to freestyle on The Bootleg Kev Podcast, Hit-Boy decided to rap over Nas’ “Stillmatic (Intro).” Even though he’s known for his producing skills, Hit-Boy’s freestyle is confident and filled with quotable lines over its almost 3-minute runtime. The beat, of course, is great as ever, produced by Hangmen 3. This isn’t Hit-Boy’s first time on the mic. He’s been releasing songs with his own performances as far back as 2012, when he released his debut solo effort HITstory. It’s been a productive year for Hit-Boy. Back in March, he released Bulletproof Soul, a collab album with Pacman da Gunman. He’s also heavily involved with The Game’s upcoming project, which will contain a whopping 30 songs.Check out the freestyle below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments.Quotable LyricsThey thought I came up, I’m barely tipping the scaleN****s wishing I fall instead of wishing me wellAppreciation turned to expectationSometimes you gotta X ’em out without the explanation[via]
