Swizz Beatz Talks To Problem Children

Posted By on October 28, 2008

    Swizzy Beatz spoke to a group of kids that are at-risk for the "My School Has Rhythm Not Violence" program at Canarsie High School in Brooklyn, NY this past Friday (10/24). The kids Swizz talked to are considered Canarsie's 40 worst behaved students. The super producer took the stage saying “How many people here is in a gang?,” continuing “If you in a gang rep ya set. But at the end of the day, your mind is how you go to war. So if you fill your mind with education, that’s your biggest weapon. That’s your gang leader.”

    After his speech, the kids split up into groups and performed positive raps they prepared all week. Swizz stayed and spun T.I.'s "Swing Ya Rag" while he danced and posed for pictures with the kids. Swizz took aside one paticular 15-year-old who is on probation for a gun charge saying "When I came in here everybody was like, ‘he’s the problem, he’s the problem’,” Swizz said once the auditorium cleared. “I’m gonna bug him out, because I got his number and I’m gonna check to make sure he’s in the crib at 8:00 to check with his P.O.”
