Hit-Boy recently told hiphopdx.com: "A lot of people don't know I rap. That's my next thing. The first joint I'mma drop is… 'Jay-Z Interview.' I had that title for maybe six to eight months and I was like 'I need to write a song called 'Jay-Z interview'…(Bink!) sent me some ill beats and one joint just connected. I'm like as soon as I heard it this is 'Jay-Z Interview.' It just had that Blueprint-esque feel."

"I just like to make what I make, and want it to be the highest quality," Hit-Boy explains. "Creating the highest form of what that record is supposed to be. Whether it's a pop record, whether it's a street hip-hop record—I want it to sound like: This is what he does."
