Goin Local- Swizz Beatz

10:39 AM

Bronx native, Kasseem Dean aka Swizz Beatz has been pushing himself forward as a renaissance man beyond the arts with the likes of  Mos Def, Jay-Z and Russell Simmons-- not only for his genius production skills, being adept in the fine arts but most notably for his philanthropic role in the collaboration of Hope For Haiti Now.

Most heads outside of the realm of Hip-Hop rarely knew of the talented "One Man Band" beyond the sound that owns the airwaves- Jay-Z's On To the Next One...

In this behind the scenes footage with MTV, Swizz humbly (a term rarely used in Hip-Hop) passes off shine towards Q-Tip and Pharrel on the now famous Justice "Dance" sample that he transformed to propel the chart-killin track.

Swizz masterminded the incredibly moving lyrics and sounds to support the anthem- "Haiti Mon Amour," that is helping to spread awareness efforts in rebuilding Haiti-- performed by Rhianna, The Edge, Bono and Jay-Z.

And man you can't hate on em just cause he gets served breakfast by Alicia (just with a chain on--ha!!  check the Drake joint for reference).
