Swizz fans have eagerly waited for this EP to drop, and has the stamp of approval from the likes of Hip Hop legends DJ Premier and Busta Rhymes along with many others. Additionally, the EP initially was supposed to have a Jay-Z feature alongside Lil Wayne on track No. 2 "This Shit Right Here," a song Swizz teased prior to unveiling the tracklist. However, it seems Hov has been removed from the credits, although he will be featured as a sample.

The EP serves as part of Mass Appeal's Hip Hop 50: The Soundtrack initiative, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop this year. Moreover, the project follows DJ Premier's Hip Hop 50: Vol 1 from last year as part of the same initiative. Not only that, Swizz Beatz has been working tirelessly on this EP along with his other major collaborations. As a matter of fact, Weezy and Swizz cooked up earlier this year with a single off of The Carter VI titled "Kan't Nobody," which also features a sample from DMX's classic "N-ggaz Done Started Somethin." The EP arrives Friday and Swizz is confident that fans won't be disappointed. Overall, the project is promised to be an absolute banger, that'll have Swizz fans begging for more.
