California producer Hit-Boy spoke about having huge success after producing Jay-Z and Kanye West's "N*ggas in Paris" and then going broke.

"I turned up 2012, got dumb bread. By 2017, I was laying on my ground with zero dollars in my account after having millions, balled up [like] a fetus crying," said Hit-Boy on DJ Akademiks’ Off the Record podcast. "Nobody around me, by myself, and I was living in a mansion in Beverly Hills. I blew it. I was investing in the homies. I was putting up money for everybody around me ... And mind you, ‘Sicko Mode’ had been recorded, at least Drake’s first part to my part of the beat that I gave Travis ... All type of sh*t was going on."

"But I still was like, ‘Yo, I got no money in my account,'" Hit-Boy added. "I can’t reach the n*gga that manage me. At the time it was Roc Nation. I’m trying to get n*ggas to hit me back, f*ck with me. I’m just completely on my own. I had no money in my account.”

Hit-Boy also talked about all of the success he's been having with his Nas collabs. The two just dropped their third joint project together, King's Disease III, which has gotten some strong reviews.
