Grammy-nominated American producer Hitkidd has made his mark on Hip Hop over the past several years. If you’re on TikTok, you’ve probably heard his viral hit “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” with collaborator GloRilla, and he’s also worked with many of today’s biggest Hip Hop artists, such as Lil Uzi Vert, Megan Thee Stallion, and Future. We recently caught up with him to gain his perspective on his career and why FL Studio has always been his DAW of choice.
Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.
My pops is a musician. Even though he never made me make music, I was always around it, so it was like I never really had a choice — I had to at least try it.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I started using FL Studio because my neighbor’s cousin had been using it, and I saw it was easier than asking my dad to use his equipment. It means a whole lot for my production, especially when it comes to drums.
