Hit-Boy Claims He's Retiring from "Music Industry Production"

Hit-Boy Claims He's Retiring from 'Music Industry Production'
Rapper-producer Hit-Boy may lose one half of his hyphenated identity, as the once-prolific beatmaker revealed that he's potentially throwing in the towel on his production work.

Earlier today (November 12), the California-based performer announced that he was no longer planning on producing with the following tweet: The statement is at once cryptic and straightforward. There's no sense that he's joking, though he could be choosing his words carefully. For example, maybe he means he won't be producing music for other big names (hence the "music industry" statement). That said, maybe he simply doesn't want to produce beats any longer.

If he does decide to throw it in on the production end, Hit-Boy will leave behind an impressive resume, including credits for Kanye West and Jay Z's "Niggas in Paris," Beyoncé's "XO" and Drake's "Trophies."
