Hitmaka has recently sat down with Jim Jones on Hot 97 with Jim Jones to promote their upcoming “Back In My Prime” joint album.
When Ebro Darden triggered Hitmaka by using his and Hit-Boy’s names in the same sentence, the Chicago, Illinois-born producer was quick to respond: “I’m on the radio. Hit-Boy is not on the radio. I love Hit-Boy. Hit-Boy is a legend. He’s a legendary producer. He has been doing way longer than me. He’s a great guy but I’m the radio for the last four-fivee years.”
Following the interview, TMZ caught Hitmaka in the streets and he was still booming with confidence , naming Dr. Dre as hip hop’s best producer of all-time but adding, at the current moment, he is number one.
“Oh man, damn. Hip-hop producer for me, personally from my own personal taste, I’m from Chicago, so I gotta go with Kanye. Just on a bigger scale, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz. I’m younger guy and I always show love to the OGs. But as far as now, I’m number one [laughs].” he said.
