Super-producer [artist id="1161216"]Swizz Beatz[/artist] has been keeping super busy in the studio these days.
Swizzy has jumped on Kanye West’s all-star “Power” remix and has been updating his Twitter followers about his recent late-night sessions with everyone from N.E.R.D. to Mary J. Blige . During his Thursday (August 26) interview on “RapFix Live,” the rapper/producer revealed that he’s also been in the lab with 50 Cent.
“I met up with him earlier in the day,” Swizz explained about slotting studio time with Fif, Mary and Busta Rhymes on Wednesday. “He’s working on some amazing material that we’re possibly collaborating on.” For the most part, Swizz kept the details of his collabo with 50 on the low: “I don’t want to talk too soon or too early, but it’s crazy.”
50 has been going back and forth about the direction of his next album after reportedly scrapping plans to work in some dance rhythms on his Black Magic LP. Swizzy, who hit the studio with 50 to craft material for the Queens MC’s 2007 album Curtis, said the only advice he has for Fif is to maintain a winner’s attitude.
“Triumphant. That’s it. Everything just would have to be triumphant,” Swizzy advised. But the producer said he’s encouraging all the stars he works with, including the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, to unleash a crazy amount of swagger in the booth.
“That’s my approach on every artist I’m working with right now. Even with Mary, you’re gonna be able to hear this week, probably Friday, her sound that’s triumphant,” Swizz said. “For me to have that blueprint and to want to be able to share it with everybody that’s of talent, it’s like, ‘Wow, this is what I get to do for work?’ It’s fun.”
