After an epic Hip-Hop moment last year going up against Just Blaze, Swizz Beatz and rap fans have been wanting another beat battle between production legends. Following playful talk and challenges over the past year, the follow-up beat battle finally went down on Sunday night (Jun. 10) during HOT 97 Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Swizz Beatz, who made up this year’s lineup alongside Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, A$AP Ferg and more, used the large stage to bring out Timbaland.
For fifteen minutes, the two legendary producers went back-and-forth of classic hits from their respective catalogues over the past two decades. Watch Swizzy and Timbo go to battle with gems from Beyoncé, Aaliyah, JAY-Z, DMX, Eve, Missy Elliott, LL Cool J and more.
