AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Hit-Boy walks the Grammy red carpet, he expects to proudly strut into next year’s awards ceremony with his father beside him for the first time. For three decades, Hit-Boy’s father was in-and-out of prison, with his recent stint lasting nine years until his release several months ago.

Hit-Boy earned a Grammy nomination in the producer of the year, non-classical category. He also did production work on Nas’ “King Disease III,” which is up for best rap album.
