Two Hip Hop powerhouses have come together once again. On Tuesday (November 21) Swizz Beatz shared an Instagram photo of himself with Dreamville head honcho J. Cole, teasing an upcoming collaboration.
The caption read, “Told you I’m in Album mode !!!! @realcoleworld good vibes and Magic Zone. the graduation is over!!!”
The announcement follows Swizz’s recent graduation from Harvard Business School where he earned a certificate in the Owner/President Management Program. The Grammy Award-winning producer hasn’t released a solo album since 2007’s One Man Band.
On the other hand, Cole has been staying busy with touring and running his Dreamville label, but he hasn’t released a sole album since last year’s 4 Your Eyez Only.
Details around Swizz’s new mystery project are scarce — no release date, no title and no cover art — but the producer appears to be creating some eclectic music. He also posted an Instagram photo of himself in the studio with Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford, so it’s likely the folk rock musician’s fingerprint will be on Swizz’s project as well.
“I told you I’m back to the music !!!! Things just got Epic with @mumfordandsons,” Swizz wrote on Tuesday (November 21). “Marcus is a beast.”
To shake things up even more, Swizz was filmed in the studio with controversial up-and-comer Tekashi 6ix9ine. The two were captured previewing new music and headbanging along with it.
