A feud is brewing in the producer world between Hitmaka and Hit-Boy. It began on Wednesday during Hitmaka and Jim Jones' press run for Back In My Prime when they appeared on Hot97. During the conversation, Hitmaka said that he's a better producer because he's on the radio more often. "I'm on the radio. Hit-Boy not on the radio," Hitmaka said. "If you play the soundtrack to your life for the past four, five years on radio - I know it's gotta be frustrating with 'em my name is so similar, my brother."
During the same interview, Jim Jones backed Hitmaka and suggested the two go hit-for-hit in a Verzuz battle. However, it seems like Hit-Boy has little interest in entertaining a battle so instead, he took his issues to the booth where he called out Hitmaka, and a few other producers. "I just seen Yung Berg smoke on the wave/ I should do him like Trick Trick and snatch Hit out his name," he raps. "I'm like Debo on this cruiser/ How you got no credits without co-producers."
Hitmaka Calls Hit-Boy A "Terrible Artist"
After Hit-Boy lashed out on wax, Hitmaka immediately slipped into the comment section where he expressed his disappointment. Hitmaka was far from impressed by Hit-Boy's upcoming diss track, especially since he felt the references and bars sounded dated. "This is nasty and punchlines from over a decade ago," he wrote. Hitmaka added that the diss record won't land Hit-Boy on regular radio rotation. "Still won't be on radio I expect from u king," the 37-year-old producer added.
Following a four-hour period of listening to Hit-Boy's snippet on loop, Hitmaka made it abundantly clear that he thought it was a weak attempt at a diss track. He said that he felt as though Hit-Boy was attempting to mimic Kendrick's verse on Big Sean's "Control." "Is this your like attempt to do whatever Kendrick did on that big Sean record for producers???" He wrote. "U ARE A TERRIBLE ARTIST. SEND ME BEATS PLS." Hit-Boy has yet to fireback at Hitmaka's latest comments, though it doesn't seem like everyone agrees with the "Thot Box" producer's assessment. Check out Hitmaka's comments above.
