DMX returned to The Garden last night as a special guest on Alicia Keys’ Girl On Fire Tour. Here’s a 30 second clip of him performing “Ruff Ryders Anthem” and “Party Up”.
After the world got to read Jay-Z’s “Open Letter”, Swizz Beatz called Hot 97 and spoke on how the session came out about. Ebro on the track?
Last night, Waka packed B.B. Kings for a benefit concert to help raise money for victims of Super Storm Sandy. Here’s X‘s recap of the show including guests Maino, Swizz Beatz and Wyclef.
Maino came out to present him with his triple platinum plaque and perform ‘Mobbin’. Wyclef did an acapella freestyle off the top of the head. Swizz also came out to show support. At the 7:04 mark, a fan gets in Waka’s face after he was told to get off the stage, but Waka kept his cool.
When it comes to business, Swizz is a monster. Yesterday, the mogul announced he will be partnering with Monster Cable Inc. as an investor and board member. Says chief executive, Noel Lee:
“Swizz will advise us on our creative direction, product design and our marketing. We’ll be looking to him to tell us what’s next. He’s the real deal. He doesn’t get involved in something unless he believes in it.”
“I analyzed and studied the company for a couple of years. It felt like this is the right time to be in business together. I have a seat on the board. I am a co-owner. This is a graduation for Monster, and it’s a graduation for me. For Monster, it shows they are investing in the culture. They are not doing things just to get by. In the next few months, the world will see who the monsters are in this world.”
With Scoop DeVille’s production, Jimmy and Swizzy put the pedal to the medal on this new track. Someone should have pumped the brakes on this one.
Back again was Swizzy this morning with The Breakfast Club. During his chat with Envy, Yee and Charlamagne, the mogul and artist shared what he has in store for Reebok, music, and his Save the Music foundation.
