Maybe it’s inspiration due to his five-year-old son, Egypt, nabbing his first producer credit on Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered. Perhaps it’s because he has more time on his hands now that his second child with wife Alicia Keys, Genesis, is getting old. Or perhaps it’s because he just felt like it. Either way, Swizz Beatz decided to drop some new music in the form of “Waiting On Me.”
With some help from !LLmind, it’s a typical Swizzy affair musically. Is it safe to say that Swizz is essentially the East Coast-based equivalent of Lil Jon: producer of bass-centric, rallying call-heavy songs with millions of records to their catalog? Think about it.
