Swizz Beatz Presents Ghetto Stories

Posted on

This Casio-reliant producer made his synthesized sounds the trademark of roughriding rappers DMX and Eve. On his first CD, Swizz grabs the mic occasionally but lets friends with superior skills handle most of the braggadocio-based lyrics. P. Diddy protege Shyne gets gutter on his dramatic self-titled cut, while Lil’ Kim (”Gone Delirious”) and Eve (”Island Spice”) give the collection a ghetto woman’s touch.
