Hit-Boy Back Working with Kanye West

Back in November, HS87 producer Hit-Boy revealed on the Rory & Mal podcast that he and Kanye West had a falling out and West tried to have him blacked balled from the industry.

“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,” Hit-Boy told Rory and Mal. “This is after I produced n*ggas 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.”

However, Hit-Boy revealed today that he is officially back to working with Ye, presumably for DONDA 2. The producer was seen in the studio with him and The Game and was given production credit on Ye’s latest release, ‘Eazy.’

Aaliyah’s ‘Unstoppable’ Album To Feature Drake, Chris Brown, and More

Aaliyah. Unstoppable album

After dropping ‘Poison‘ featuring The Weeknd last month, Aaliyah’s uncle and Blackground founder, Barry Hankerson, revealed that the singer’s posthumous album, Unstoppable would be dropping this month.

Hankerson tells Billboard that the album will feature contributions from Ne-Yo, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown and Future, as well as production from Timbaland.

“The body of work is pure hip-hop and R&B,” Hankerson told Billboard. “I think it’s going to be big with urban and R&B stations. Some of the people that Aaliyah liked are on the album. She loved Snoop Dogg, who’s done a great record in collaboration with Future. They’re going in now to refreshen their vocals. Ne-Yo gave us an excellent song; also Drake.”

“Timbaland produced the track that Chris Brown did,” Hankerson continued. “It’s vintage R&B with strong vocals. I look for that one to also get a very special reaction from listeners. We’ll probably release one more single before the album comes out.”

Unstoppable will be the first album that will feature new music from Aaliyah in over 15 years.

“I think she would be very happy with the selections we made and the guests because the artists themselves made it known to us how much they wanted to work with her and be a part of her legacy,” said Hankerson. “And I pray that she is happy. Aaliyah would love hearing herself with the current stars of the industry that she cared so much about. And that’s all I wanted to do.”
