I think it’s fair to say that we are about to witness one of the greatest musical battles in all of hip-hop. Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are without a doubt two of the best music producers in the game and both of them have worked with some of the biggest names in music. As we approach something epic, both of these legendary producers have been posting videos on their Instagram account showcasing their skills. The pot got a bit bigger when Swizz decided to share a video of Nas speaking his thoughts on the battle.
“That’s two top tier niggas going at it,” Nas said. “That’s what the game need. The game needs that. Y’all two niggas are like two of the illest niggas so … y’all both my brothers, so I just want to watch it go down.”
Timbaland then fired back with a video of his own that he recorded of Kendrick Lamar weighing in on the upcoming battle.
“This is my generation,” Kendrick said. “Being a student of rap, when I first started rhyming, what I used to do was check the fucking credits. This is something I don’t know if the kids are doing, but I’m going to explain it to you. Checking the credits is how I know I want to work with Swizz Beatz one day. I remember my favorite fucking beats, checking the credits, would say Swizz on it.”
Watch both videos below. Who do you think will win this epic battle of the beats?
