There aren’t many people out there having a better 2020 than Hit-Boy. The superproducer’s comeback campaign saw him light the year on fire when quarterbacking albums by Nas, Big Sean and Benny The Butcher. A fan took to Twitter wondering about Hit’s best beats of the year and the Grammy-winning producer gave his picks Friday morning (December 4).
“I’m goin wit 27 summers, sly green, salute, and deep reverence off Detroit 2,” he wrote before asking for more fans to chime in with their thoughts. “What y’all think my best beat is in 2020?”

All of Hit’s selections ended up on different projects. “27 Summers” came from Nas’ King’s Disease album, which is nominated for Best Rap Album. “Sly Green” appeared on Benny The Butcher’s rugged Burden of Proof, while the Grammy-nominated “Deep Reverance” features the late Nipsey Hussle on Big Sean’s D2.
