Music Buzz: Swizz Beatz vs Fela Kuti Pt. 1 Mixtape For Monster Mondays

February 8, 2011

Each Monday, hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz posted on his music blog, Monster Mondays, a new artwork and new music just for his fans. On Monday January 31st, Swizz and DJ Runna recognized the King of Afro-Beat Fela Kuti with a modern mash-up off Fela’s hit songs with seven of Swizz’s own hit productions featuring Busta Rhymes’ Touch It, Eve’s Tambourine, Beyonce’s Get Me Bodied, and many more. Dj Runna and Swizz Beatz have done this Monday Mondays musical production for the past sixteen weeks. I love what Swizz and Runna did with the beat and I also enjoy the artwork that Swizz did for the production. The intro and outro by Fela pulls it all together. Sit back and take a quick listen!
