“Poison” will feature Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Lil Wayne & others
Swizz Beatz unveils Poison album cover after he has been teasing his Poison album for the past few months now and most recently precisely last month, he was supposed to drop it, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. However, it does look like we’re about get a taste of what’s to come in a matter of hours when the album is made available for pre-order on iTunes this Friday, where we’ll be receiving the new single with Lil Wayne in the process Vibe reports.
As for who else we can expect to hear on the album, we have the report back in July that Kendrick Lamar, The LOX, Nas, Lil Wayne, Jim Jones, Pusha T, Giggs, Young Thug, and 2 Chainz will all be making contributions to Poison. There’s just no word yet when it’ll be dropping, but that’ll be revealed Friday when the pre-order is available tomorrow.
“I handed all the creativity on the album to the artists, in their comfort zone. I didn’t make it about Swizz. It’s my album, but I’m a producer, and it needs to be about the artists that are on it,” Swizz said. “I wanted it to be lyrically, the best album this year, last year, and the year after … As a producer, you either want to make someone sound better than they usually are, or better than they’ve been in a long time.”
Before we get the new Weezy song this Friday, Swizz decided to share the album’s cover art on Instagram Wednesday night as well and you can check it out below.
