Hit-Boy and Nas worked insanely hard on their album King’s Disease II. During an Afterparty of the album’s celebration Hit-Boy drunkenly had a go at Kanye, which caught Jay-Z’s attention.

Hit-Boy reflected on the rant and talked about how he woke up to an e-mail from JAY-Z the very next morning on the New Rory & MAL podcast. Hit-Boy confessed that although he was proud of everything he achieved that night, he was embarrassed by his drunken rant. The same night, Kanye West was hosting his second Donda listening party in Atlanta.

“It’s not a hundred n***** producing the beat,” he said. “It’s not a hundred n***** writing the rhymes, n*****. It’s two n***** in the studio. I hear this shit right now, homie. It’s going down. King’s Disease II. Stream that shit, buy that shit.”

“It’s just me and Nas in the studio,” he added. “There be n***** in the studio. It’s just me and bro, bro. Do y’all hear this shit? It’s just me and this n***** in the studio. He’s barred up, I’m making beats. No hooplah. We not on fuckin’ Twitter botherin’ y’all. We not on IG Live putting a weird-ass stream up, n*****. We doin’ this shit for real though, n*****! Stop playing!”

Hit-Boy’s pointed at the big production collaboration and budget that Ye usually has on his albums and compared it with own. He shared what the E-mail from Jay-Z said, Hova shares a special relationship with Ye West, as the two go way back. :

“I woke up at 6 in the morning, n-gga blitzed from the night before,” he explained. “First thing I see is an e-mail from JAY-Z. That’s the first thing I see. I was like, ‘Fuck’ before I even opened it. First sentence in the fuckin e-mail was, ‘I saw your speech.
“I’m like, ‘Damn.’ He was like, ‘You don’t even gotta do all that, man. This shit hard, I fuck with the album. You talented, stay humble’ type shit. I hit him back like, ‘That’s 1,000.’ I was like the crazy shit is I know if this shit get out Hov gon’ see dis and shake his head.’”

This speaks volumes about the kind of influence Hova has in the Hip-Hop industry. Hit-Boy had no problem going at Ye but it’s clear that Jay-Z had enough sway to de-escalate that situation before it became anything more.
