Swizz Beatz ~ This Man is on Fire!
So when I think about musicians outta The Bronx, just like Swizz, learning and developing an art form...and then think of the icons like Swizz and company, and how they are now full-fledged businessmen, intelligent leaders, and in his case still filled with humility and drive...I am confident. I feel confident knowing that the youth have a variety of role models to emulate. And not because they are "just" rappers, or "just" athletes, or "just" R&B singers, but because they have taken their window of opportunity and turned it into a growing legacy.
It's a good feeling.
