On Producing Pusha T’s “My God”
Hit-Boy: “One of my publishers linked me up with Pusha’s manager, Steven Victor. I was sending his manager beats that I already had, but he was like, ‘Yo, we just need that one [beat].’
“We were going through samples one day and came up with that and that’s just a jewel of a sample. I put it together and as soon as I sent it to him I told him, ‘This is the one.’ This was a couple months prior to Pusha getting on it.
“I ended up going to Dubai and then New York with Kanye and Pusha. When we were up in New York, I was just stressing this record to Pusha like, ‘Yo, I’m telling you when people hear this record it’s gonna cause commotion.’
“I have footage of Pusha writing the verses, which is crazy. He recorded it and the first time I heard it I was like, ‘This is about to set the Internet and the streets on fire.’”
