A Swizz Beatz-Produced Reason Track Is On The Way

Showtime!

One of South African rapper Reason's biggest dreams has always been to rap over a Swizz Beatz. And last week Friday, since Swizz is currently in South Africa, the rapper put it out to the universe via a tweet.


He first mentioned how his single "Celebrity" was first recorded over the Swizz-produced Watch The Throne song "Welcome To The Jungle." "I SERIOUSLY NEED A BEAT FROM HIM!!! IT'S MY DREAM!!!" he concluded his tweet.

While some tweeps laughed the tweet off, Reason's fans vouched for him. Two days later, the rapper posted a video of him, Swizz Beatz and DJ Fresh. "Asked for a beat publicly on some rap shit," says Reason on the video. And I only asked for it officially on some proper shit today."

Swizz Beatz then confirms that he will be sending a beat to the rapper. "Come on, let's get it," he said.

Reason's one of South Africa's finest lyricist, and looking at his track record, we can anticipate a potent song. We will be waiting. Not so patiently.
