The newest installment of beat battles will officially be between Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
In 2007, Swizz Beatz battled Kanye West on stage during Hot97’s Summer Jam, which definitely had the crowed amped! It was unclear if an actual winner was chosen, but it made for some great entertainment. Then, back in February of this year, Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze came together to battle like no one has ever seen. After almost 3 hours of the two super-producers battling it out, Swizz ended with an unreleased track that included Jay-Z, Nas, Jadakiss and DMX that landed him the current crown.

In April, there were rumors of Timbaland vs. Pharrell, but it has yet to come to fruition. So, three weeks ago, Swizz Beatz called out Timbaland while at press event for the upcoming Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight. The two then began to post “warm-up” videos on social media of each man at his home studio. For hours they went back and forth, trying to one-up each other and definitely gassing up the iminent battle.
The date and location of the next battle has yet to be determined, but as huge fans, everyone is holding their breath and we’re definitely excited to watch as it all unfolds. It’s going to be amazing! I hope this actually becomes a thing!
