Atlantic recording artist HITMAKA has unveiled his eagerly anticipated debut single. “THOT BOX (FEAT. 2 CHAINZ, MEEK MILL, TYGA, A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, & YBN NAHMIR)” Prod by Nonstop Da Hitman is available today at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.
“THOT BOX” marks the first official single from HITMAKA, widely regarded among hip hop’s most prolific and inventive producers for work that includes Big Sean’s 5x RIAA platinum “Bounce Back,” Chris Brown’s double platinum certified “Party (Feat. Usher & Gucci Mane),” A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s double platinum certified “Look Back At It,” French Montana’s platinum certified “No Stylist (Feat. Drake),” Drake’s “Jaded,” and Meek Mill’s “Dangerous (Feat. PnB Rock & Jeremih),” among many others. The track precedes Hitmaka’s full length debut project, due in 2020.
“Throughout my career, I’ve always been able to put records together for different people,” says HITMAKA. “Once I had the hook, I knew who I wanted on it. I got YBN Nahmir, Meek, 2 Chainz, Tyga, and A Boogie. Everybody was feeling it. They say, ‘It’s a hot girl summer,’ so we had to tell the other side of the story from the male perspective. We love all women. You watch, the girls are going to love this.”
Chicago-born and currently Los Angeles-based, HITMAKA first learned production as a 14-year-old hanging around such hometown legends such as Kanye West, No I.D., and Boogz. He soon began rapping himself under the name Yung Berg, earning acclaim, multiple RIAA platinum and gold certifications, and a series of hits including the full-length Look What You Made Me, which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums” chart upon its 2008 release.
Despite his success, HITMAKA decided to move into production full time, earning his first hit with Tamar Braxton’s R&B smash, “The One.” Since then, he has helmed a chart-topping discography that currently boasts more than 28 million digital sales and 5 billion streams thus far, spanning superstars from Cardi B, 2 Chainz & Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj to Jeremih, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla Sign & Tory Lanez, to name but a few.
“I want everything to feel timeless and classic and stand the test of time,” says Hitmaka. “Traditions and trends come and go. I hope my music is here fifty years from now. I’m trying to bring back the real substance and elements from the nineties and two-thousands I love. It starts with ‘Thot Box’. It’s going to be a takeover. I’m excited for hits, more hits – and more hits.”
