Big Hit and Hit-Boy have taken time to celebrate the release of their collaborative effort The Truth is in My Eyes, a project which seems to have made Hip Hop history.
The two were on hand at Bottom Bunk Sneaker House on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles on Saturday (December 16) as friends, family and colleagues gathered to toast the newly released independent album.
Currently available only via Big Hit’s Bandcamp store — bighitnupid.com — The Truth is in My Eyes is the first Hip Hop album to have been produced entirely by the son of the artist whose album it is.
Just ahead of the project’s release on Saturday, Hit-Boy took a moment to explain just how significant of a moment this was for him.
“Being in elementary school telling people me and my dad were gonna make music together one day when he’s back out on the streets,” he captioned an Instagram post. “Over the years we have had points where he touched down for a second maybe a few months MAX and we started recording and making some progress. Then he’d let the streets win and he’d end up right back in the cell for years at a time.
“Big Hit has spent about 30 years of his life on the inside and i still never looked at him at anything other than my dad he’s himself at all times and it’s no cut on how he move love it or hate it. this time feels different for me personally im a lot more mature and i know who i am so as a man i can hear him out and also be a leader for him in my own right.
He concluded: “It’s alot of pressure but it’s also therapy for both us i would say. 9pm pst tonight we’re dropping his DEBUT album The Truth Is In My Eyes and i couldn’t be more proud of this moment. Most people wait til they family die to honor them in this way but we doing right here rn while we ALIVE.”
This wasn’t the first time Snoop connected with Big Hit ahead of his long overdue solo album.
On December 4, Hit-Boy shared on social media a clip of Snoop on a phone call with Big Hit. In it, the Doggfather lays down some “rules and regulations” for the producer’s father, who is attempting a rap career after returning home this past spring from serving nine years in state prison for a hit-and-run.
“As a father, your job is to mentor and give him information where one day, your son can teach you,” Snoop began. “You in a position now to be taught. That n-gga can teach you how to stay out, how to get money, how to be the dope-ass rapper that you are.”
Hit-Boy reiterated this theme in his caption, writing: “This is the FIRST TIME ever in music you’ve seen a role reversal of this proportion. I’m helping my dad do something constructive with his time and giving him an outlet to express himself in a creative manner through music.”
In early May, the Grammy Award winning producer took to Instagram to reveal that his father had been released from prison and had come straight to the studio to lay down some tracks with his son. Since then, the two have been on a tear, not just putting Big Hit’s solo album together, but also releasing a pair of singles form Hit-Boy’s upcomingSurf or Drown 2.
The Truth is in My Eyes comes in at 17 tracks and boasts appearances by Jay Worthy, Snoop, Dom Kennedy, The Alchemist, Benny The Butcher, Musiq Soulchild and Hit-Boy who pulls double duty on “A$VP Chauncey.”
