Swizz Beatz is back in the studio and he is about to drop a new mixtape. In the beginning of the year, Swizzy announced that he was working with a few artists on his upcoming disc. RapFix caught up with Swizzy recently, he revealed that Rick Ross, Nas, DMX and The Lox will all be featured on his mixtape, in addition to A$AP Rocky who will appear on his first single.
“When the Rick Ross mixtape Rich Forever came out that inspired me to do a mixtape because sometimes people need to get back into the element of what you do, since they see you doing so many different ventures,” said Swizz Beatz, confirming that, “My first single is with me and A$AP Rocky.”
“People have to know that you can take it back to the basics and keep it hip-hop and keep it fun and just do what made you the person that you are. That’s why I think this mixtape is important. I’m vibing with Nas on it, Rick Ross, DMX, The Lox, people that everybody’s like ‘Man, when are you guys gonna do a track together?’ and ‘When is this happening? I thought the mix tape was a great way to bring that to life.”
“I know that everybody was looking for a whole album,” he added. “But I’m a perfectionist and I felt like I just wanted to put some more finishing touches on it and figured I don’t have to rush anything.”
An official title and release date has yet been announced. Stay tuned to YDBR for the latest on Swizz Beatz.
