10 Songs Swizz Beatz Almost Ruined But Didn’t

swizz beatz lead 2

We give Swizz Beatz a hard time at TSS, but the truth is, the Basquiat-loving producer has made a lasting, positive impact on the Hip-Hop game. Even ignoring his huge hits of the early 2000s, Swizz has produced crowd-moving heaters on event albums, street-level bangers, deep album cuts, and even managed not to totally annoy everyone with his hooks.

While there are many of us who will always cringe every time we hear “It’s Showtime!” we wanted to highlight some of the wins on Swizz’s record with the ten tracks he didn’t ruin.
