Hit-Boy Releases a Statement on First Grammy Award For “Ni**as In Paris”


Hit-Boy was one of many first time Grammy Award winners Sunday night. The G.O.O.D. Music affiliate, who was responsible for producing “Ni**as In Paris, received the honor for Best Rap Song. Other producers involved in the song were Mike Dean, Anthony Kilhoffer and West.

“I have always dreamed of winning a Grammy [Award] and to share the award with two artists that I consider mentors and have tremendous respect for only makes me feel that much more undeserving,” he said in a statement. “Thank you Jay-Z and Kanye [West] for giving me the opportunity to create something special with you, I know this is just the beginning. I never would have had a chance to be where I am without my family who has supported me along every step of this journey; you are my inspiration to continue working hard. I cannot believe it, I feel so blessed.”

“Paris” is certified triple-platinum since releasing as a single off Watch the Throne.
