“X is my brother,” Swizz said in the interview. “What people don’t know is, X has been X since day one; the thing is nobody cared back then. Now that he’s famous, everyone wants to act like this is a new problem – but it’s not.”

Swizz also touched on why it seemed that X’s seeming cries for help have fallen on deaf ears.

As previously reported, X was recently caught on tape saying “Fawk Jay-Z”, but Swizz states that there is no beef just a misunderstanding.

“Naw there is no beef between X and Jay,” Swizz Beatz said. “X is going to address [beef] in a certain way. It’s 2010 and all that fake beef and tones to sell records is a thing of the past and people need to really move forward and just focus on making good music.”
