Swizz Beatz Talks "Watch The Throne," DMX, His Favorite Beat

Swizzy talks everything under the sun, including Kanye and Jay-Z's collabo album.

Swizz Beatz is a busy man these days, prepping his upcoming album, Haute Living, as well as producing for everyone under the sun.

In a recent interview with Bootleg Kev of Hot 97.5, Swizzy discussed some of the many projects he has going on, including Jay-Z and Kanye's collaboration album, Watch the Throne. "I got some fire on that album. I don't even know the name of the joints, because when we workin', we just focused on making history.

"As far of the names, I'm sure [Kanye] and Jay'll figure that out," he said, adding that he's recorded two or three records for the album.

Swizz also addressed the possibility of working with DMX in the future. "It's all on him. I'm open to work with anybody who's a part of the family. Just like Eve... I'm still a part of the Ruff Ryder roots, and it's not going anywhere."

Finally, Swizz discussed his favorite beat, picking the one that brought his name to prominence. "I always say ['Ruff Ryders Anthem.'] I always goes back to that."

    I'm not feeding into all this 'Watch the Throne' shit just yet there's one thing pushing back a great artist but pushing two back is a piss taker. D was, is & always will be my number one emcee yeah I know his habits have taken a toll but what he did or the game can't be done again. Oh an I gotta agree with most of y'all Swizz has fallen flat on his face since the outta circle artists picked up on him.

    Ruff Ryders Anthem is a classic and always will be. one of the best Anthems of all rap history i still rock to that shit. i miss the old Ruff Ryder days if they brought that back that would be awesome. They did on Whos Real Remix by Jadakiss tho. Anyways Watch The Throne couldnt take any longer

    I think Swizz is the most overrated producer. He was good once but his best beats are behind him.

      I dunno, these guys aren't hungry all the time anymore like they used to be. When they're in their prime they everything they touch is good. But I wouldn't say fell off, He can make a real banger now and then.
