Back in January, it was announced that music artist Swizz Beatz was working on a new mixtape. RapFix caught up with Swizzy recently, he revealed that Rick Ross, Nas, DMX , The Lox and A$AP Rocky will all be featured on his mixtape. “When the Rick Ross mixtape Rich Forever came out that inspired me to do a mixtape because sometimes people need to get back into the element of what you do, since they see you doing so many different ventures,” said Swizz Beatz, confirming that, “My first single is with me and A$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 HHW for the latest on Swizz Beatz.
