The all-around talented, hit-making producer, Hitmaka stopped by Nick Cannon Mornings to talk about life as an Atlantic Records VP, his “puff daddy magic,” and dabbles into his love life as well.

The almighty producer, formerly known as “Yung Berg” has been in the game for a MINUTE. Going from rap star, to now the actual depiction of his name, it’s no wonder why Hitmaka is such a successful figure in the game. When asked what his motivation is after moments of struggle, the artist replies,“Losing inspiration or like, the fire, the desire. The stuff that keeps us waking up every morning. Being here early in the morning, staying in the studio alone… nights like that.”

With his triumphant career change and dominating not only one aspect of the field, Hitmaka states how he made his comeback. “I mean I think my life changed. One the biggest tipping point was me, um, Big Sean Bounce Back. That was a big moment for me. Jeremih changed my life. Jeremih is one of my closest friends.”

Nick Cannon and Hitmaka also get a little deep and talked about their love life. While the conversation just skims the surface, the producer jokingly tells Nick that his “track record” surpasses Drake’s. Peep the clip below:

Without a doubt, Hitmaka has an ear, and many would even argue he is the “Diddy of our generation.” While still humble, he does go on to say he feels as though he does have Diddy’s “magic” and knows how to create a hit from scratch.
