Swizz Beatz & Timbaland Go Head-To-Head For The Summer Jam Beat Battle
With a head-to-head next tour?
East Rutherford, NJ – Almost a year ago, Timbaland agreed to a battle rhythm challenge from Swizz Beatz.
At the time, it was not clear when it would go down, but in Hot 97's annual Summer Jam concert on Sunday (June 10), the battle finally took place before the crowd at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The duo was back and forth for about 15 minutes with some classics like "Jumpoff" and "Whateva" before Swizz finally raised her hands and said, "This is to be continued. I did not finish with the ass whipping, and I guess that is not [either]. There is too much catalog."
Swizz later took to Instagram to promote the idea of a head-to-head tour between the two legends.
If a Swizz VS Timbo and friends tour happen ???????? Yes or no?
