Picture Me Dope: Swizz Beatz Drinking A V8 Splash On His G5 & Carrying A MCM Briefcase

Swizz Beatz was recently spotted relaxing on his G5, while drinking a V8 Splash drink. If you look at the picture closely, you can see that Swizzy had his MCM briefcase sitting on the table. I must admit, Swizzy’s MCM briefcase is dope. MCM (Mode Creation Munich) is a German luxury brand which specialty in leather goods, apparel and footwear. The brand was founded in 1976 and can be seen worn by some of the biggest artists in music.

I love and respect Swizzy career, style, and personality. He’s dope! Swizzy is more than a music producer. He’s also a fashion designer, creative director and art collector. Born Kasseem Daoud Dean on September 13, 1978 in the Boston Road area of the South Bronx. Just like myself, growing up in the inner city didn’t stop Swizzy from living his dreams. He was always destined for greatness. At the age of 18, Swizzy first witnessed fame and success when he produced his first hit-record, “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” by DMX. Since then, Swizzy produced for some of the most talented artists in the music industry such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Eve, Jadakiss, 50 Cent and many more.  Swizzy also sold more than 300 million records and has collaborated with major fashion houses like Christian Louboutin, Reebok and Aston Martin.

The Sky is not the limits, it’s just the view

“When I say the sky is not the limit, it’s just the view, that’s something I came up with because I think people are comfortable when they reach a certain level and lose the hunger,” he said. “I don’t think there should be any boundaries on exploring the next level. If you can stand up on the moon and look up in the air from there, it’s still just a view, you can go up higher than that. I use that slogan to inspire people to do whatever their wildest dreams are, to just go for it,” Swizz Beat/Haute Living magazine.

Behind The Scenes: Trina Shoots Video To Her Single “Red Bottoms”

Female rapper Trina was spotted in the strip club shooting the video for her single “Red Bottoms.” The track was produced by Collipark and is off the Miami native latest mixtape Diamonds Are Forever. In the Gil Green directed video, you can see Trina and her girls working the pole. Trina is one of the prettiest female rappers in the game. Her body is real and she didn’t get any plastic surgery. I love Trina, I think she’s very underrated. The industry does not give her the credit that she deserves. Peep the pictures below:

Front Page: Nicki Minaj Covers Cosmopolitan

Platinum-selling femcee Nicki Minaj is gracing the November issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. In the cover story, the Queens native talked about dealing with industry guys, suicidal thoughts, the difference between her and Lady Gaga and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On dealing with industry guys

When you come into the business as a woman, you have to pay a lot of mind games because the men tend to be very aggressive. It’s like chess—you have to protect your goods. Had I just started screwing the guys, it would’ve been over because they never would’ve taken me seriously.”

On her suicidal thoughts
I kept having doors slammed in my face. I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home. It was just one dead-end after another. At one point, I was, like, ‘What would happen if I just didn’t wake up?’ That’s how I felt. Like maybe I should just take my life?’

“I would pray to God to make me famous so that I could buy my mother a huge house.”

On the difference between her and Lady Gaga

I think Gaga is freakin’ dope for that. But I can’t be bothered. Give me my sweats. I like transforming from completely raggedy to ‘Ahhh, I’m ready’. That transformation gives me a high.”

On her abusive father

He would beg, cry, stalk us… One time, he pulled my mother out of a car and dragged her for two blocks. After that, I had a phobia about unlocked doors. Anywhere my mother and I were, I made sure the door was locked, because that was my only way to protect her.”

On what attracts her to a man physically

I do like a dope nose profile, one that’s straight on the side. And I like full lips. I’ve never kissed someone who didn’t have full lips.”
