Swizz Beatz is American hip hop recording artist and record producer, rapper, actor, and his current net worth is $80 million.
Growing up without a father, Swizz’s mother used to raise him in the North East Bronx where he first encountered hip hop.
He started DJ-ing after acquiring some equipment from his stepfather and uncles, and had little success.
He moved to Atlanta, Georgia because he used to show violent behavior at Harry S. Truman High School.
While there he started working for his uncles at their Ruff Ryders Entertainment record label.
At age of 16 he started producing tracks with the help and guidance of his uncles as well as his aunt Chivon Dean, all involved with the record label.
A year later he sold his first record to Ruff Ryders artist DMX. The single became his #1 track on charts.
Then he continued to produce but on a more serious level, major hip-hop songs. Among the songs are Banned from T.V by Noreaga and Money, Cash, Hoes by Jay Z.
The following year, he produced most of the songs of the Ruff Ryders compilation album Ryde or Die Vol. 1, as well as the bulk of Eve’s debut album.
Few years later, in a joint venture with Clive Davis, he founded his own record label, Full Surface Records.
Philadelphia-based rapper Cassidy became Full Surface Records’ first artist signed.
Back when he released his first compilation album Swizz Beatz Presents G.H.E.T.T.O. Stories, people started noticing him.
People most noticed his production style and interesting ideas.
The same year he released two singles, Guilty and Bigger Business, both of which charted on the top.
He grew tired to be associated with Ruff Ryders and Roc-A-Fella Records, and he started to expand his “wings” to include more artists from famous labels.
From that point, Swizz Beatz became a name known everywhere.
In 2007 he mixed the music for Fall 2007 New York Fashion Week runway show for Heatherette.
Later the same year, My Drink n My 2 Step, Cassidy’s comeback single, produced by him, proved to be a hit.
In 2007 he also released his solo debut studio album One Man Band Man. The album sold 45,000 copies in its first week.
Other albums followed as well as other singles produced for other artists. Today Swizz Beatz is one of the richest rappers in the world.
He is married to Alicia Keys and has two kids with her and other three from other relationships.
