Swizz Beatz Teases New Music with Jay Z

Friday, May 5th, 2017


What are Swizz Beatz and Jay Z up to? A couple of clues point to some new music from the pair being imminent. Yesterday on Instagram, Swizz posted an image of himself and Jay with a couple of captions (“They don’t even know what’s about to happen” and “Album ModeZone”), which would strongly suggest that at least one of them, and possibly both, are at work on a new project.

A couple of days before that Swizz sent out a late night tweet from the studio with a similar message, although it made no mention of who he might be working with, and the Instagram post it linked to has been deleted.

Additionally, Jay Z was just added as headliner to the Austin City Limits festival, which goes down this October. That means Jay will be performing at a minimum of two big festivals this year, not including his own Made In America event, scheduled for August. As we all know, Jay doesn’t usually show his face at too many big events such as this unless he has something to promote, and it’s been an open secret for some months now that he’s been plotting a new album. Whether or not that project is what Swizz is teasing here remains to be seen.


Check out Swizz’s posts below.

Listen to an Unreleased Nas, Jay Z, Jadakiss and DMX Song

Saturday, February 25th, 2017


So last night, Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze took to Instagram Live for a 3-hour long “battle of the beats” which had them facing off with some of their respective classics and a bunch of unreleased music. One of the highlights that has gotten the most attention, for obvious reasons, was an unreleased track from Nas, Jay Z, Jadakiss and DMX that Swizz played. The audio from the live stream wasn’t the best, but you can certainly get the gist of the record. While some of the lyrical references sound a bit dated (bath salts, zombies, etc) this shit sounds like a banger.

Watch below.

Busta Rhymes ft. Swizz Beatz – AAAHHHH!!!

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016


Busta had promised to close out last week with the release of two new tracks but the weekend came and went and nothing materialized until last night when he dropped “AAAHHHH!!!”, produced by Swizz Beatz. It’s a bit more subdued that what you might have expected from a Busta song with that title and will presumably appear on Busta’s next full-length.

Listen below.
