Swizz Beatz recently was asked by the New York Knicks NBA team to put a new spin on an old song. "Go NY Go" has been the teams theme song for years but they are looking for a makeover.
“[Swizz] is from from the Bronx. [The Knicks] always try to get people that have that connection; people who they feel could really pay homage ’cause they represent that culture. Plus, [with] the new sizzle that they have with Carmelo [Anthony] and Amare [Stoudemire], they want to give people an updated but still vintage song that reflects the old [song]. It’s just a lil’ more spicy.” (XXL)
