Swizz Beatz & Timbaland Compare Hits In An Instagram Live Battle Of The Beats
Two of hip-hop’s favorite producers engaged in a spirited battle of the beats last night! (3/24/20) Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last two decades and beyond, and won’t let each other forget it. Considering that fact, they’ve been friends and colleagues for many years. They even discussed their creative process together during last year’s Revolt Summit.
They kicked off their quarantine jam with “Blood Pressure” by The Lox and “So Anxious” by Ginuwine.
Last night was sooooo epic!!!! @Timbaland x @THEREALSWIZZZ really put on for the culture and they said that this was only part 1. I didn't even mind the technical difficulties. They showed up and showed out!!! I stayed up til about 3:30am with these 2 ?? pic.twitter.com/veodU5kuZp

His late collaborator, Aaliyah, is Timbaland’s secret weapon.

Swizz Beatz had an unorthodox response to Timbaland’s production on “Pony” by Ginuwine. He pulled “Roman’s Revenge” by Nicki Minaj out of his hat. He told Tim:
“You better put the pony in the saddle!”
Lastly, the two super-producers, then, compared their work with the Queen Bey – Beyonce.
