(AllHipHop Rumors) Swizz Beatz wants the answer to a question a lot of us have been wondering: what TF has New York been doing lately in Hip Hop.
For a while New York was accused of losing it’s way and it’s “sound”, and some of the rappers from New York not even sounding like they were in fact, from New York. Some have blamed it on a southern takeover of mumble rap diluting the game.
Folks are rocking with Dave East, Young M.A., and a handful of others, but when will New York make a complete comeback? Clearly we see the New York legends dipping in and out, but does Swizz have a point?
Swizz says he gave y’all New York rappers and producers a chance to come in, but now he’s going to just have to take over and bring the heat back.
“I just don’t understand what New York’s been doing. I’ve gave y’all a lot of time producers….everything. I’m not no King or nothing like that you know. How y’all let New York get to this point. I was at Harvard; I’m doing art. I just can’t take it no more.”
The good news is Swizz Beatz is also back in the studio working on DMX’s new album. Every time I see DMX and Swizz together in the studio, I get mad hype, but is it just me, or does it feel like we get this announcement every 6 months. I guess I’ll be gassed when it really comes out.
