HIT-BOY SAYS JAY-Z REALIZED HE HAD THE ‘SICKO MODE’ BEAT AFTER TRAVIS SCOTT BLAZED IT

During a sitdown with DJ Akademiks on his Off The Record podcast, Hit-Boy stopped by to talk about his legacy and talked about some of his biggest records, including “Sicko Mode” and “N-ggas In Paris.”

When speaking on the former, Hit-Boy said after giving the beat to Travis Scott, he actually played it for JAY-Z, who had his own vision for the track, but it was too late. At the end of the day, Travis was the first one to pay up. When Akademiks asked if the producer ever runs into hot water playing beats for multiple interested parties, Hit-Boy replied plainly that it’s all about who pays.
