He’s best known as the mastermind record producer behind big names such as DMX, Beyonce and TI. Now as he prepares to release his third studio album ‘Haute Living’, following disappointing sales for his last solo offering ‘One Man Band Man’, rapper Swizz Beatz looks dapper in a Tom Ford suit on the cover of Paper magazine’s summer music issue.
Swizz promise that the album is going to be a star-studded affair, with guests including Bono, Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne.
“I thought that it was time people know who my friends are and who I’m affiliated with”, the 32-year-old tells Paper.
Swizz who is married to R&B singer Alicia Keys tells the arts and style magazine the following on their marriage:
“Being married to a public figure made people take a second look at me….I know who my fans are and I know who her fans are that come up to me. I’m cool about it, I’m happy to have some of her fans coming to say what’s up.”
