Hit-Boy reveals A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie” was originally for Jay-Z | Music News

VICE’s sister channel Noisey recently had the chance to pick Hit-Boy‘s brain at Glenwood Studios in California as part of their “Let The Build Beat” segment. The storming producer claims credit for such contemporary hits like Lil Wayne and Eminem‘s “Drop The World”, Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s “N****s In Paris” and A$AP Rocky‘s “Goldie”, and in the interview actually revealed the latter wasn’t intended for Rocky at all, but for Hov, instead.

“I had the track in and, I’ma just say it, I wanted to save this track for Jay-Z, to be honest,” he said. “But [Rocky’s] a young dude, he fresh, we had a good vibe and I played him the joint and I’m like, this is the one.”

Hit-Boy also spoke on how he got into production, working with Bink! on his debut rap single “Jay-Z Interview” and the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation. All that plus more in three clips below.
