Swizz Beatz has been building hype for his album Poison for months now. The veteran producer’s execution behind the keyboard is legendary, and a long list of artists can attribute their success to Swizz Beatz’s ear for hit records. He effectively cultivated the talent of the entire Ruff Ryder crew in the 90’s and early 2000’s, and blessed Jay-Z, among others, with hits throughout the decades. After dropping off several singles for Poison, Swizz has arrived as promised with the full-length project.
Swizz may drop some bars of his own, but we already knew the strength of Poison’s potency would depend on the featured artists. The project boasts appearances from Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Styles P, Pusha T, Young Thung, Jim Jones, French Montana, 2 Chainz, and more. Somehow, Swizz packs the lengthy list of talent into a concise 10 song tracklist.
