'N***as In Paris' producer Hit-Boy turns rapper

It worked for Kanye West.

Like the outspoken Chicago artist, hip-hop producer Hit-Boy is venturing into the music game as a rapper and has debuted his first music video for the song "Jay-Z Interview."

According to MTV, the "N***as In Paris" producer announced a few months ago that he planned on trying his hand at being a lyricist, and now he has.

Here's the video (warning, it contains some colorful language) below. Do you think it's a hit or miss?

    @sky its a shame that the words you speak doesn't go together. You are saying that rap music and the people that perform and write these songs are making young people commit crimes and get locked up. And when they get locked up its their responsibility to go see them and support them because its their fault. You are wack! And for the record I know three rappers that have degrees.

    Good morning all. I guess after 6 years & two kids, Matthew McConaughey must finally think they are compatible for marriage. What courage that must have taken! Lol.. I watched that Jimmy Fallon clip. I personally like him. I think he's funny, & has a good voice, too. They did a great job on that song. Have a great weekend everybody!

      @SKY- geese, take a breath! Here's the thing, I don't like rap music, period. My solution to the problem, I just don't listen to it. To each his own. Everyone has their preference. You keep preacing like you have something constructive to say, but you sound like a ignorant person with all your dribble. Why don't you take an english class and learn how to write a proper sentence. Maybe then, you can make a constructive thought that we can understand.

    Enough with the self righteous bullsh!t. they didn't go to college like I did and and graduated 3rd in my class and blah, blah, blah. At least they are making a living legally and not robbing people and selling drugs. If you don't like rap music thats cool. A lot of you people sound like you are lving miserable lives regardless of your so called success and you really just want some company.

    @Deonne, Jealous a little? How is going from producer to rapper selling out? It takes balls for a good producer to put himself out there like HB is. So, from your posts, this is what I get: selling albums = selling out. Go get your hug from Care Bear. You liked Jay-Z's "hits"? That tells me that you don't even listen to whole albums, mixed tapes or B-sides. Who isn't a sellout… in your opinion?
    @Observer, after just one listen, I would venture to say that 97-99% of the words in this track are in the Oxford English Dictionary. Take you're trolling ignorant statements over to fox news.

    I liked a couple of Jaye Zs earlier hits and I liked Kanye before his mom died,now I can't stand either one of them.They're sell outs,and a lot of people they sold out to now hate them.
