The Renaissance Man: Swizz Beatz Talks Upcoming Projects With A$AP Rocky, Jay-Z, 50 Cent & More

The renaissance man (Swizz Beatz) recently stopped by DJ Whoo Kid’s radio show on Shade 45 (with his son Egypt by Alicia Keys) to talk about his upcoming projects, Jay-Z’s success, and collaborating with A$AP Rocky. While on air, Iggy Azalea, Akon and A$AP Rocky called in. Last month, Swizzy and his Monster Music Group signed a joint venture with Imagem Music USA. Swizzy’s will be releasing his upcoming mixtape, entitled Limitless soon. Below are some excerpts:

On A$AP Rocky:
“[It was through] Sean Cross, actor-slash-spitter, and you know, that’s A$AP’s real cousin, and he’s been telling me about A$AP, and I’ve been seeing A$AP doing his thing for a while now, and I was like, ‘Yo, we need to get something to together’, and he was like, ‘Yo, let’s rock’. This is the only joint right now, but you know, the sky’s not the limit, just the view.”

On Nas:
“Me and Nas have been at it for years and years, and we always get to this point in which it’s time for him to rap up the album, and then we get into this deep vibe, and after a while, we’ll be vibe-ing so much, we forget to work. So this time, we’re gonna vibe and work. So, we’re in deep right now. Writing out some video treatments, stuff like that. We got some other big announcements as well, but I’m going to make him do that though”.

On Jay-Z:
“You got people who are just straight gifted. His longevity alone shows that he’s well gifted. A lot of people can have “now” records. But who’s continuously doing it throughout their future, from ’98 to 2012.”

On 50 Cent’s new album:
“A couple of people reached out. I’m just waiting for the confirmation. 50’s easy. All we need is just one of those New York street bangers.”

Sneaker Me Dope: Fabolous Rocking Nike LeBron 9 Low “Floridian”

Over this past weekend, rapper Fabolous packed his Louis Vuitton luggage, left his New Jersey mansion and flew down to Miami for a pool party at the Perry hotel on South Beach. Loso was relaxing poolside with a big bottle of Ciroc and a pair of Nike LeBron 9 “Floridain”. These kicks feature a bright Vivid Orange base upper with Cherry accents and a mixture of both on the translucent outsoles with feature LeBron’s trademark Lion logo. This dope shoe was released on May 5th and priced at $150. Loso paired his sneakers with an orange and white tee-shirt and cut-off denim shorts. Nice look just for a sunny summer day in Miami. I’m feeling Loso’s outfit!
