Swizz Beatz Reveals Why Nas, JAY-Z, Jadakiss & DMX Collab has been Omitted From "POISON"

It will come out ... eventually.

After the release of Swizz Beatz's last album POISON, in particular the collaboration was missing. During a recent interview with the TIDE of Rap Radar podcast, the legendary producer revealed what happened to the track " Because," which was supposed to feature Nas, JAY-Z, Jadakiss, and DMX.

He explained that he felt that it would have overshadowed the rest of the songs on the 10 track project. centered-ad {

"Imagine if I put this record on this album, I don't think that a lot of songs would get the attention it is receiving as a body of work," Swizz explained. "It took discipline, and I had to remove things on purpose...It would have been like the main thing on the lists.

"What I noticed was that the people who came in the studio and just talking about that song, and you know that the era that we are in the people are going to go to the disk, go to that song, and didn't even bother with the rest of them."
