New Music: Swizz Beatz f/ Rakim – ‘King Tut’

King Tut

Swizz Beatz starts the week off with the latest installment of his Monster Monday series, enlisting veteran Rakim to rap over a sample of N.E.R.D’s “God Bless Us All” from their new album Nothing. The mid-tempo track features brassy horns and signature handclaps, with Alicia Keys’ hubbie taking first duties before throwing it to the God MC.

“Did you get the message/ Hip-hop is back/ We don’t know how to act/ Tell the DJ bring us back!” raps Swizzy on the chorus.

    It sounds like Rakim to me…He just mellowed out on this trick, or maybe y’all haven’t heard anyone rap like this in a long time. I love this kind of hip hop
