Swizz Beatz Says Jay-Z Song Was For His Album

Posted By on May 17, 2010

     Hit producere Swizz Beatz recently talked about how Jay-Z's "On To The Next One" was really for his own solo album but he even gave his "Iron Man" track to Busta Rhymes. "'On To The Next One' was definitely for my album," Swizz revealed in an interview. "It was the last song on Jay's album. He's Jay-Z, so I don't mind falling back and playing the producer role. That also happened with the 'Iron Man' song for Busta. My three year-old son came up with the concept for the song simply by playing with his Iron Man toy, in the studio. Now they are playing that song on the radio. I respect Busta. He is a great friend beyond the music, so I let him have it…I want to do what's fun for me. I don't mind taking the risk. I don't play it safe. I don't care what people think. I am an artist. It's similar to painting on canvas. It is my interpretation of my life. You can see that in my hard work, in everything that I do. Even in being a great father, this is how I live. Some people won't like it, some will; that's just the balance of the world."
