Video: Hit-Boy – ‘East vs West’

A blast from rap’s past. Hit-Boy brings back nostalgia hip-hop in his new music video for “East vs West,” a cut off his debut HITstory.

The producer-turned-rapper conjures up images of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. by wearing Pac’s trademark bandana and Biggie’s Coogi sweater, and flips through old records. Directed by Fredo Tovar and Scott Fleishman, Hit remembers the journeys of the late rap icons and other legendary hip-hop soldiers.

The “Ni**as in Paris” producer will embark on his “HITstory” tour beginning next month.
