A few days ago, veteran producers Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze took to their respective Instagram accounts to announce their upcoming Battle of the Beatz — with the Ruff Ryders and Roc-A-Fella representatives planning to lock horns in a battle for supremacy.
The event—which was streamed on Instagram Live—also brought out guests such as Alicia Keys, Hot 97’s Ebro and Busta Rhymes, as the two GRAMMY-nominated producers played everything from The LOX to Fat Joe, Jay Electronica and Cam’ron.
They even took it a step further by playing some unreleased tracks—including a burner from Nas, Jay Z, Jadakiss and DMX (yes, you read that right) at the 2:27:00 mark.
Relive the moment below.
A separate clip for the Nas, Hov, X and Kiss joint.
Until then, Tidal just put up an epic playlist that featured bangers from both producers.
And since I don’t have Tidal, and I’m sure many others don’t, I recreated the playlist on Apple Music. A few Jay Z joints are absent for obvious reasons, but that’s about it.
