Swizz Beatz stopped by DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 radio show to plug his Limitless mixtape and discuss working with Whitney Houston, A$AP Rocky, Nas and Jay-Z. He was joined by Egypt, his adorable and busy son with Alicia Keys.
With a highly successful and talented wife such as Keys, one would expect the man with a million jobs to be envious, but Swizz asserts he’s rather inspired by the R&B soulstress.
“I’m not jealous–I’m inspired. I’ll put her against any producer. On the MP… and everything. I sit back, and I’m like, ‘ You rocking the MP like that?’ I remember when I first seen that, I was like ‘Yo, she’s a problem for real’. To see her rocking the MP, the super plug-ins, the hundred keyboards with different modules–she’s really into the craft of making music. I was like, ‘Yo people need to see this one day. They need to see you banging out a beat.’ She might give [Dr.] Dre a run for his money.“
