Swizz Beatz Gets Inducted In To The Bronx Walk Of Fame
Soon to be Harvard student Swizz Beatz received the honor of being inducted into the Bronx Hall of Fame this week, as the borough celebrates its 100th anniversary. The Grammy Award winning producer was joined by four other Bronx natives who were also honored including David Zayas of TV show Dexter, film and television actress Rachel Ticotin, New York Jets guard William Colon III, and Tony Award-winning stage actress Priscilla Lopez.
“2014 is our county’s centennial, and I can think of no better way to celebrate the best of our borough than by welcoming home these five individuals, who have made a major impact in their respective fields, back to where it all began, right here in The Bronx,” wrote borough president Rubin Diaz Jr. in a brief statement about the honorees.
Swizz Beatz shared his sentiment on the honor via Instgram in a caption that read: “Today is a real day to remember for me!! In 1998 today “Stop Drop” came out. This very same day in 2014 to announce getting inducted into the BRONX Walk Of Fame. For that honor the BX will name a street after me. I’m calling it SWIZZ BEATZ ST. To reflect on this great moment I went back to my old hood on Boston RD and chilled in my old backyard. #Bronx100 #BX”
An awards ceremony for the honorees will be held May 18.
