Two of hip-hop’s heavyweights Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze went toe-to-toe in a live-streamed historic beat battle. Both producers have spawned twenty years of massive success by creating hit tracks for chart-busting artists. Swizz has produced hits like DMX’s “Ruff Ryders Anthem,” and Drake’s “Fancy,” while Just Blaze has been a regular producer for Jay-Z, producing his classic “Public Service Announcement.” In the clip below, Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze collided to see who could better bring the heat. The battle was very reminiscent of the hip-hop’s early years, when DJing was in the forefront.
During the battle, Swizz dropped an Unreleased Jay-Z, Nas, DMX, and Jadakiss track (below) we can’t wait to hear in its full glory.
Back in 2007, Swizz Beatz took on Kanye West in a beat battle the Summer Jam stage Now, the two board-breakers decided to put their skills to the test to see who is the better producer. Just Blaze took to Twitter to suggest Timbaland and Pharrell follow suit and have a battle.
