H.I.T.T.M.A.N. is the name of the artist who hails from the Mid-City section of Los Angeles, CA. Somewhat of an enigmatic figure in the rap community, widely known for his contributions to Dr. Dre`s multi-platinum selling "2001" LP released in November of 1999. H.I.T.T.M.A.N. appeared on an astounding ten tracks including a solo offering titled "Ackrite"! Also credited with co-writing "The Next Episode", "Fuck You" and "Some L.A. Niggaz" to name a few.
Prior to signing with Big Yacht/Aftermath Entertainment in the summer of 1998, H.I.T.T.M.A.N. was featured on a tune called "Life`s A Gamble" alongside former schoolmates FunkDoobiest for their third LP titled "The Troubleshooters". Other guest appearances include Knoc-Turn-Al`s 2001 release "The Way I Am" for a song called "Watch Out", D.J. Hurricane`s 2000 release "Don`t Sleep" song titled "Blow It Up", as well as Kurupt`s 1999 release "Streetz Iz A Mutha" showcasing a scaled-down "Ho`s A Housewife" contrary to "Housewife" that appears on Dr. Dre`s opus "2001".
Despite H.I.T.T.M.A.N. `s undeniable presence and input on "2001" his overall stint at Aftermath was rumored to be "tumultuous" by some industry insiders. And by his own admission he stated while working with Dre on his album was a great experience, "creative differences" between him and his mentor coupled with contractual disputes between him and the production company he once championed (Big Yacht), along with his failure to cope with personal tragedy (in a timely manner) stifled the creative flow of what was to be his Aftermath debut "HITT`s Big Skore". H.I.T.T.M.A.N. then went on hiatus for several years, resurfacing in 2006 with an offering that has become a cult classic titled "Hittmanic Verses" released on L.A. Hill/Sickbay Records.
Additional releases by H.IT.T.M.A.N. include "Big Hitt Rising", and a single titled "R.N.A.D.W.". Stay tuned for more info regarding H.I.T.T.M.A.N. music, merch, and show dates.
