Swizz Beatz Speaks On Dr. Dre, "Big Plans" For DMX & New Work With Nas

Swizz Beatz discusses several topics including Dr. Dre, new work with Nas and "big plans" for DMX.

During a recent interview, Swizz Beatz shared much about several topics. He discussed Dr. Dre's influence and explained how he got to "vibe" with the Doctor recently. Beatz also discussed "big plans" for longtime collaborator DMX and new work with Nas

"I was definitely floored to be around [Dr.] Dre, especially recently working with him on his album and us finally getting one-on-one time for a week and change to just vibe, vibe in the club, vibe outside of the studio and vibe at the crib and still see his threads that made him the greatest still be intact," Swizzy told Bootleg Kev, before noting they worked together approximately two months ago. 

After touching on that matter, the conversation turned to DMX and Swizz Beatz said he has big plans for his Double R partner. 

"I have a lot of big plans with X that I plan on putting in motion as a brother, as a responsibility, as fans," he said. "I'm mapping that out now and the world will soon know about that...DMX is one-of-one. I just hate to see what I've been seeing because I remember when people couldn't follow up with him on stage, big name people...People still don't understand X. My job is to get people to understand X for real. With reality shows, that stuff is edited. It's real stuff but I just think people need to see another side of X."

He also noted that he has new work with Nas, adding that the two will have a fun but gritty new video. 

"We've got a couple of things we're working on. We're in the middle of working on the treatment for the video. It's an unexpected track from me and Nas, literally having fun but still keeping it gritty."

    Swizz Beatz isn't that good of a producer. honestly, i believe that he should stick to rapping, it fits him more. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong but i gotta go with my heart on this opinion.

      swizz should stick to rappin?? idk where your comming from with this but for me personally, swizz is 10x better at producin than he is at rapping.. and even his producing hasnt been the best lately imho.. anybody else have thoughts on this?

    "him and DMX have something tight together" What are they getting engaged? lol We all know X doesn't have the paper he once had, so I can understand him not being able to afford the top notch dudes, but there are hundreds of producers flying under the radar that probably could give X a fresh, new sound.

    So long as he doesn't plague Nas like Timbaland did on Nastradamus with "you owe me" bc Swizz is definitely in that realm like Timbaland where they have charged hopping beats, at times too R&B and sometimes just a nuisance.

  • land lord

    Props to Swizz!! If his work for Nas is as good as his work on WTT I can't wait to hear it.

    "I'm mapping that out now and the world will soon know about that. DMX doesn't need you Swizz. You actually hold him back.

    • ETK

      Who does he need? Some no-name producer nobody ain't heard of, or some other reveled producer DMX has no fuckin connects with? Swizz like it or not knows what's hot in the streets, and him and DMX have something tight together. I'm not expecting something super nice but to say he's holding him back is some BS haterade talkin

  • rainer12
