“…I am really looking forward to the next chapter for 12On12 and with the expertise and passion Swizz Beatz brings to the table I’m really excited for what’s to come for the brand.”
Compiling his own 12″ vinyl-only compilation, Beatz brings 2 of his passions together.
As the project will also include photography from his very own private collection (The Dean Collection).

This is what Swizz had to say about his passion for jazz –
“Jazz has always been magic to our ears. I feel like it should get more attention! This is the first step to pay homage to the great craft & art. Photography is also one of the best expressions of art and should be shown more often. Art & Music are brothers and sisters, so I thought it was a great match. I’m a big fan of Kwame and I also love I’m able to share pieces from my collection through Music!”
