Swizz Beatz announces new deal with Epic Records, wants to Don King more DJ battles

"Oh it's not a game this year trust me," Swizz revealed on IG.

Well, it seems like at least some of those heart-stopping records that Swizz Beatz has been teasing us for a few years with through socials media (especially that one with Jay Z, Nas, DMX and Jadakiss) will finally be coming out soon. Maybe even 2017 soon. Swizz told the public today (April 28) that he has a brand new signed deal.

The super producer posted a picture of himself today on Instagram with a recording contract.

Of course, L.A. Reid runs Epic Records: home to top line acts such as DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest, Future, Travis Scott, Mariah Carey and Diddy.

Swizz was on hand last night at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of Diddy's documentary "Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story" and the accompanying Bad Boy concert.

After the private dinner for Diddy and friends, Swizz met up with Pharrell Williams and DJ Clue. Swizz posted footage of him on his Instagram talking to Clue and Pharrell, trying to Don King some DJ battles. Swizz wants to see Skateboard P vs. Timbaland - who have already begun talking about the idea, according to Just Blaze - and DJ Clue vs. FunkMaster Flex.
