Dubbed as one of the most sought-after hip-hop producers, Hit-Boy does exactly what his name says — make hits. As the winner of the Outstanding Producer of the Year Award for the 2021 NAACP Image Awards, Hit-Boy is steadily climbing the charts.
At 33-years-old, Hit-Boy (born Chauncey Hollis), the talented producer, has been in the game since the mid-2000s. He first honed into his craft after working alongside the R&B production team The Underdogs, who worked with Lionel Richie and Tyrese, RocNation writes. From there, the producer took a shot at his producing work for Fergie’s 2006 album The Dutchess before earning official placement on J.Lo’s 2007 Bravealbum. After signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label soon after, Hit-Boy’s success has sky-rocketed ever since.
