Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze engaged in an epic beat battle on Instagram Live on Friday night. Here’s the entire thing.
Swizz and Just surprised fans when they announced they were having a beat battle earlier this week and exceeded all expectations once the bell rung. The two super-producers went back and forth for more than two hours as each of them kept pulling new tricks out of their bags.
Hosted by Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, a room full of onlookers witnessed it live while more than tens of thousands of people watched it on their phones. Even celebrities like T.I., DJ Mustard and Timbaland logged on and left comments along the way.
Swizz wound up being declared the winner. While he had the upper hand for most of the night he sealed the deal by playing an unreleased track featuring Jay Z, Nas, Jadakiss and DMX. You skip right to that at the 2:25:00 mark.
Thank God for this moment. This was much needed for the culture. A much better option and event than that stupid-ass Chris Brown vs. Soulja Boy fight. Swizz and Just also revealed plans to hopefully have Timbaland, Pharrell, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Alchemist and El-P have battles as well.
