Isaiah Rashad “200/Warning”

Not on the album.

TDE’s Isaiah Rashad shares a two for one of loosies in the form of “200/Warning”.

Swizz Beatz Debuts Unreleased J. Cole Verse on DMX’s ‘Bath Salts’

Swizz Beatz and Timbaland went head-to-head in their highly-anticipated Verzuz rematch on Sunday night.

After going back with their biggest hits—from Aaliyah to Lil Wayne to Missy Elliott—during the livestreamed event from LIV Miami, Swizz surprised the crowd with an unreleased verse from J. Cole that did not appear on DMX’s album Exodus.

“This rap shit got you really believing you that ni**a you rappin’ like / F**k ni**as hanging with tough ni**as for bragging rights,” raps the Dreamville boss. “I don’t know if that’s cool with y’all / If so, then cool, I move along / A Ville ni**a, I grew up with dos and don’ts / And that type lose their life like you might lose your phone.”

JAY-Z and Nas can both be heard alongside DMX on the album version of “Bath Salts.” It’s unclear if and when the full Cole version will be released, but it could appear on a re-release of Exodus, which dropped Friday.

Swizz has teased a second part of X’s posthumous 13-track project. “We have the material,” he said. “This project definitely needs a part two.”

Verzuz: Swizz Beatz vs Timbaland Rematch

Rematch!

Swizz Beatz and Timbaland take it back to where it all started for this Memorial Day weekend special of their Verzuz.

On Sunday (May 30), the co-founders and super-producers went head-to-head in front of a live audience at Miami’s LIV nightclub with DaBaby, Nas, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Busta Rhymes, and more in the building.

Opened with a virtual salute from Missy Elliott, Swizzy and Timbo shuffled back through their extensive catalog including their solo records, superior production, star-studded collaborations, classic features, and many more including a new version of “Bath Salt” featuring J.Cole. The rematch was dedicated to the late DMX and Aaliyah.

Last March, the pair launched Verzuz at the start of the pandemic with their very own Swizz Beats vs. Timbaland. Since then, it has spawned countless battles and was recently acquired by Triller Network. Back in 2018, the hitmakers brought their first ever battle on the main stage of Hot 97’s Summer Jam.

Swizz Beatz vs. Timbaland follows Verzuz’ previous SWV vs. Xscape on Mother’s Day and arrives ahead of the recently announced Soulja Boy vs. Bow Wow.
