It’s showtime! Swizz Beatz liberates his new single and video for “Pistol on My Side” featuring Lil Wayne.
With Swizzy on the beat, Weezy shouts out his mother Cita and even Birdman (“Numbers don’t lie / The No. 1 Stunna, nevermind”). The fiery visual finds an overall-clad Weezy at his home away from home, the skate park. While he spits flames, the Harvard grad pours lighter fluid on a burning piano, played by his wife Alicia Keys.
“Pistol on My Side” is one of 10 tracks off Swizz’ Epic Records debut Poison, which is executive produced by J. Cole. The album, his first since 2007’s One Man Band Man, also features appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Jadakiss, Styles P, Pusha-T, Young Thug, and 2 Chainz.
Poison is due Nov. 2. See the tracklisting below.
