It’s a bright sunny day in Miami Beach. Swizz Beatz is preparing for his “No Commission” art show inside his new beachfront condo, which is unlike any gallery or exhibit you’ll see at Art Basel 2017, Vibe sat down with Swizz Beats to talk about his upcoming projects and his Beat Battle with Timbaland. “I feel that hip-hop can use an injection, and I think they ready for it, too,” Swizz said about the album. “The Fab and Jada [“Theme Music”] joint was like a test. That’s just the warm-up. Even with the battle with me and Tim, we had to push that back to until the top of the year. I think we’re dropping our albums on the same day, so we’ll see. It’s all fun, though.”

The hype for the Swizz Beatz vs. Timbaland beat battle has been high since Swizz called him out at the Mayweather VS. McGregor World Tour last summer. Over the last few months, Timbaland has also been busy working on a few collaborations of his own and hasn’t been pushing for a date as of late. However, Swizz is ready whenever he is. “It’ll be more celebration than a battle,” Swizz sincerely points out. “I just want to change that word around a little bit. So battle is like ‘kill each other,’ right? You know, but we’re really celebrating each other by even having the respect to do that. We’re going to treat it like a sport. Come in with your game face, I’ll come with my game face and [we’ll] do what we need to do. Tim is not an easy guy; he ain’t no pushover. I’m not an easy guy either so this is a good one. It’s for the culture anyway. At the end of the day, nobody loses because the culture wins.”
