The musical gods are on Hit-Boy’s side.
Hit-Boy explained how he lost the coveted Nas and Frank Ocean collaboration due to a “technical” error.
“I had a bunch of [recordings of] sessions on [a hard drive], and in the mix somehow, in traveling, I lost the drive,” he said. “It’s not only that song [that I lost]; it’s a bunch of other songs I could be done with right now, and I’m kinda pissed about it, but it is what it is. You live and you learn. Now, I’m backing up everything three times over…I’m not sure [if we'll re-record it]; I had talked to Frank about it and he was gonna try to re-cut it, but he was doing so much for his album that he didn’t have the time. It just didn’t come together.”
Just when Hit-Boy thought the collaboration was forever lost, he somehow restored his defective hard drive and retrieved all of his lost hits.
Hit-Boy made the big announcement on Twitter:
So fans should start gearing up to hear Nas and Frank Ocean’s “No Such Thing As White Jesus” track soon!
