"Jason," the Swizz Beatz-produced lead single off Jadakiss' November album Top 5 Dead or Alive, had a throwback sound, but damn if it wasn't one of the hardest New York tracks of 2015. After contributing to a couple of excellent joints on The Life of Pablo, Swizz has now brought back the "Jason" instrumental and handed it over to Bronx legend KRS-One.
Swizz Beatz has made quite the resurgence in the music industry these past few months, receiving credits on Kanye West’s latest album The Life Of Pablo, and even releasing a solo record of his own last week called “Waitin On Me.” Looking to keep it going, Swizz decides to come through tonight and liberate another offering for us called “Represent Tonight.”
Waitin' On Me
Swizz Beatz made quite the splash earlier in the year when he appeared on Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo album, with adlibs heard on the Rihanna-assisted smash “Famous.” Looking to keep the momentum going, Swizz decides to come out of nowhere today and liberate a new single called “Waitin On Me.”
Rick Ross Feat. Kanye West & Rihanna
A new Rick Ross remix of Swizz Beatz-produced banger "Famous" signals the second drop from a cascade of The Life of Pablo remixes to come. The first was Stefan Ponce's excellent "I Love Kanye" remix, which Ponce has since taken down.
Earlier today, the young, talented Brooklyn spitter Stro came thru the HNHH studio to record a new track. Already he's emerged with the master in his hand. It is a remix of "Jason," originally a Jadakiss single that appears on his new album Top 5 Dead or Alive. The track's menacing production is the work of Swizz Beatz.
What You Want The Money For
Sheek Louch Feat. Swizz Beatz
Hearing the names Sheek Louch and Swizz Beatz, you might think we were talking about another era, but today, they've come together to bring back some of the early 00s New York fury, and it still sounds pretty damn good. After Sheek shows out on his verse, Swizz comes through with a hook, hitting us with the same shouted style we've come to expect from him.
Jadakiss Feat. Swizz Beatz
Jadakiss keeps coming with the New York street heat. Two days ago, he dropped "Baby," and yesterday, he got the other two members of The Lox to join him on the "Still Grind'n" remix.
Wanna Know (Drake Diss)
Well here it is! After Drake went “Back To Back” on us this week, Meek has finally released his response record tonight titled "Wanna Know." Calling on Jahlil Beats & Swizz Beatz for some bangin’ production, Meek Mill fires back at Drake with a 4-minute lyrical onslaught. Bringing the energy, Meek goes hard at Drake for biting other artist’s flows, paying people off, and the obvious ghostwriting scandal with Quentin Miller, where he leaks another reference track that Quentin Miller did for Drake's "Know Yourself."
Fuck U Freestyle
A day after the death of his good friend and collaborator Chinx, Queens' N.O.R.E. has decided to unleash a freestyle over The LOX's "Fuck U," off their 2000 album We Are the Streets, paying homage to all the NY street rappers still doing it as well as those who have moved on to the next life. The track opens with a clip of Jay Z's tribute speech to Chinx from last night's "B-Sides" concert in NYC, before N.O.R.E. rips a classic hustler's freestyle over the Swizz Beatz instrumental.
Y'all Haters (Freestyle)
Wow, Jadakiss sure picked two Jay Z songs that he could flip into self-referential freestyle. After switching area codes from Brooklyn to Yonkers on "Where I'm From" earlier today, he's now on Hova's "Jigga My Nigga" saying "What's my name? Jadaaaaaa." This one's titled "Y'all Haters."
