Swizz Beatz is gearing up to release his first new solo album in over a decade, Poison. It’s out November 2 via Epic. He previously said the album is set to feature Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Pusha-T, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, the Lox, Giggs, Jim Jones, and more. Swizz Beatz has shared his Lil Wayne collaboration, “Pistol on My Side (P.O.M.S).” Watch the video below, which features Alicia Keys on piano
Swizz Beatz’ last solo album, One Man Band Man, arrived in 2007. “You can hear the passion from everyone on the record; they wanted to be a part of it,” he told Pitchfork in a recent interview at Jungle City Studios. “It wasn’t a transaction. When you hear other features on a lot of projects, it feels like a transaction. You’re either chasing hype or it’s a transaction.” Swizz also revealed that he made a track with Kanye West and U2’s Bono that was cut from Poison. “It’s just not that record. It might be on my next record,” he explained.
