Swizz dropped the unexpected bombshell midway through a “battle of the beats”.
An unreleased track featuring Jay Z, Nas, DMX and Jadakiss was previewed by Swizz Beatz during a DJ set last night.
The producer was engaged in an almost three-hour long “battle of the beats” with Just Blaze that was live-streamed on YouTube.
Swizz dropped the song midway through the battle and later appeared to confirm that Jay Z, Nas, DMX and Jadakiss feature in a tweet.

The entire battle is available to watch below via Hot 97. The track in question is played at the 2:27:12 mark.
Yesterday, Jay Z gave a rare interview with Frank Ocean for the debut of his Beats 1 radio show in which he criticised commercial radio for its lack of diversity.
He was also recently made the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
