Swizz Beatz To Be Honored During Pre-Grammy Brunch

(AllHipHop News) Producer/songwriter Bryan-Michael Cox and SESAC will host a brunch during the Grammy Awards to honor producer Swizz Beatz.

The sixth annual event was started by Cox to acknowledge singers, songwriters and producers who’s accomplishments sometimes go unnoticed.

According to Cox, the event also serves as a networking vehicle for members of the music industry.

“Every year I look forward to celebrating the achievements of my comrades in music," says Cox. "This year I am especially thrilled to recognize the accomplishments of my friend and fellow music producer Swizz Beatz for his continued success and dedication to music."

Swizz, born Kasseem Dean, who is also a member of SESAC, a performing rights society, started his career at the age of 16.

He was produced this for a number of artists, including Jay-Z, Eve, Chris Brown, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Ludacris and others.

This year’s brunch will also acknowledge Cox’s recent induction into the Georgia Hall of Fame, after being named one of Billboard Magazine’s top ten producers of the decade.
