Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze Throw a Beat-for-Beat in Spontaneous Soundclash

Yesterday, a soundclash between two of Hip Hop’s veteran Producers went down. On one side, Swizz Beatz, a known Producer who has collaborated with Hip Hop’s biggest; Jay Z, Eve, N.O.R.E, DMX, Drake and more. On the opposing side, Just Blaze, a close beat maker for Jay Z.

Swizz and Blaze took to Instagram to announce the battle.

It was a non-funded event, where the audience (of which Alicia Keys and Busta Rhymes were a part of) were family and friends of the producers.

Rules were rules, as stated in the PSA, the two began their battle with freestyle beats made with 4 sounds only. What to follow was a pure nostalgia of mixes – Jay Z, DMX, Jadakiss hits were dropped in their back-to-back sets.

Watch the full almost 3-hour soundclash, above. Swizz suggested for a continue of similar events, mentioning a potential Pharell and Timbaland battle.
