Chancey Hollis Jr. was born in Fontana, California. He soon became Hit-Boy and started promoting his music in the early 2000s on Myspace. His rise in success was with the help of Polow Da Don through a well known producer who got in touch with Hit-Boy by a very short message stating, “Let’s Get This Paper”. He has since produced for major artists such as Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Mary J Blige, 50 cent, Chris Brown, Big Sean & Justin Bieber. In 2011, Hit-Boy’s work put him on the map when he signed to GOOD Music and produced smash singles like Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “N*ggas In Parris” and A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie.” After much time being a successful producer he proved he much more than that. In 2012 he released a single of his own, “Jay-Z Interview”.
Just this year alone Hit-Boy has released over seven samples and songs promoting his new album Zoomin 2. He also features known artists like Wale, Quetin Miller, Donnie Trumpet, Ricky Anthony, and Richie the Kid.
In June of 2013, the producer left GOOD Music on what was reported as GOOD terms. Now with Hits Since ’87 as an imprint of Interscope records, we are excited to see what 2014 has coming for one of the most talented producers of this generation.
Hit-Boy has been dropping off new songs at a weekly clip since the top of the year. Last week, it was “TD Celebration” ft. Rich The Kid and Donnie Trumpet. This week, it’s “Feels” feat. Ricky Anthony.
Hit-Boy says he started the song by laying down the keyboard parts — a bouncier, inquisitive melody line over a mellow, low-end electric piano pad — and took it from there. “Feels” will appear on Zoomin 2, which might be coming sooner than you think.
“The full EP will be released as soon as it is completed,” Hit-Boy says. “Could be tomorrow could be this summer. Ha.”
Touchdown, celebrating in the end zone
My dirty bird made me take her out to friend zone
She dropped me off to pick the Chevy up from Pep Boys
My date is dancing like they making up a step, boii
