Swizz Beatz has been holding onto a large posse reduce referred to as “Just Because” for the longest time.
To my recollection, the tune in query, “Just Because” that includes Nas, Jadakiss, DMX, and Jay-Z over classic Swizz Beatz manufacturing, was solely heard on one event: throughout a heated beat battle involving him and Just Blaze. Those in attendance have been requested to maintain their lips sealed, out of respect to the originator.
Swizz Beatz has since revealed that he got here near releasing the tune to the general public. “Just Because” was a part of the preliminary mockup he’d written for the POISON venture, however in the long run, he pulled the plug. He defined his choice on TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast.
“Imagine if I put that document on this album, I don’t assume lots of songs could be getting the eye that they’re getting as a physique of labor,” Swizz defined. “It took self-discipline, and I needed to take away issues on objective…That would have been like the principle factor on individuals’s lists.”
It seems, that at this level of his profession, Swizz Beatz values album curation and creative path, greater than anything. It stands to motive, that the ultimate draft POISON nonetheless boasted loads of star energy. Nevertheless, I do hope “Just Because” sees the sunshine the day someday quickly. It could be a travesty if the tune received misplaced within the mists of time.
