A short ‘Love’s Gonna Getcha’ routine on the turntables from DJ Rasp
Mass Appeal talk with Swizz Beatz for his episode of #TheStudioInterview “Is this artist prepared to do a party song tonight? Or should he just talk about a chick, ’cause he’s all emotional,” says Swizz Beatz…“It’s different levels to it.”
To what? Producing. The somewhat lost art that Swizz Beatz, born Kasseem Dean, has specialized in since he was 20 years old dishing beats to Jay-Z and DMX. It isn’t just about pairing drums with snares or dancing in the back of the videos. It’s a curation process that’s earned the Yonkers native millions of dollars, more plaques than he can count on two hands, and a reputation that stretches across the seven seas. We’ll be reminded of that pedigree when his first new album in over a decade, ‘Poison’, drops this Friday.
It’s Episode 6 of Wordplay TV’s studio series, this time Nick Russell links with Gi3MO to chat about his new album ‘Big Gizzy Is Boss’ and life with Rum Committee.

Be-troit is an exchange project between the cities of Berlin and Detroit during which 16 different artists (slam poetry, rap, singing, beatmaking) came together in Detroit in 2016 in order to unleash creative vibes resulting in creative outputs which far surpassed their wildest imaginations.
Through the different genres, styles, backgrounds, experiences, age and ethnic make up of the group this collective created a full length album in a time span of merely 10 days. Influenced by contemporary and historic happenings and trends in these two cities they found common ground and subject matters on which to work on. This film documents these 10 days and represents the visual priming coat for the album ‘Be-troit’.
