Swizz Beatz – “Represent Tonight”

blame it on Meka March 31, 2016

Swizz Beatz should thank both Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar: the former, for landing a placement on the first official single from The Life Of Pablo “Famous,” and the latter for his son Egypt landing a placement on his untitled unmastered song “untitled 07 | 2014 – 2016.”

Whatever is the case, however, those two have seemingly put a battery in the back of Kasseem Dean, as he returns with a new solo song following up “Waiting On Me.” If “Represent Tonight” sounds familiar, it’s because he uses the same Sister Nancy sample in the same manner as ‘Ye’s “Famous,” but throws in a vintage boom-bap bassline and some call-and-response lyrics for good measure. It almost sounds like it’s just an interlude, being honest.
