Been Around The World: Swizz Beatz At 50 Different Locales

Swizz Beatz must have one hectic, jam-packed schedule. The guy just seems to be everywhere these days. It was just last week (May 2) that the Ruff Ryders’ beatsmith showed up at Rick Ross’ special MMG Press Conference, couple days later he popped up at Shepard Fairey’s gallery, and then at the star-studded Met Gala this past Monday (May 7). Whether it’s at a studio session with Pharrell and Kanye, working with the folks at the Lotus HQ, hosting Reebok events or merely a meeting with designer Christian Louboutin, Swizzy is one busy personality. Taking a look at his many voyages throughout the past couple months, XXL gathers up some photos of Swizz Beatz and his slew of appearances. Clearly, Swizz is watching…—XXL Staff (@XXLStaff)
