The debut of “Niggas In Paris” producer Hit-Boy is coming under instant scrutiny thanks to the parallels it shares with Kanye West’ “Through The Wire”. Same sort of hubris with a young producer who winds up crafting 2011’s most bellowed out and performed cut being able to politic and connect with some of the brightest stars in the game.

Difference between that Yeezy’s joyride to getting a Roc-A-Fella chain and this? We admired the Kanye broken jaw thing and made it a part of the West legacy. Hit-Boy up until this point hasn’t had one of those moments that instantly draw you to the song, which isn’t a shame for him but a shame for all of the critics looking to pencil this in as something bigger than what it truly is – an “okay” debut rap record from a pretty damn good producer.
