Hip Hop producer Swizz Beatz shed some more light on the highly anticipated release of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s upcoming Watch the Throne album.
Talking to BBC Radio 1xtra, Beatz said Hov has taken his lyricism to another level. He compared Jay’s hunger to an up-and-coming emcee looking to make it in the rap game.
“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.”
