Hit-producer Swizz Beatz recently sat down to discuss how much he is looking forward to Jay-Z and Kanye West's upcoming "Watch The Throne" collaboration album, promising that Jigga has taken his lyrics to another level. Swizz Beatz compared Jay-Z's hunger to that of an up-and-coming rapper who is trying to make it in hip hop.
"Jay is on another planet right now," Beatz said in an interview. "I was just working with him and Kanye [West] on they album, and I got to vibe with Jay on some other things. I'll let him tell you about it. But he just lyrically stepped it up like he didn't make it into hip-hop yet. I was like, man, you sound hungry like you didn't make a dollar yet. And that's the key to maintaining staying hungry and maintain staying dedicated to the craft." (BBC Radio 1xtra)
