Swizz Beatz “Pistol on My Side” Video Featuring Lil Wayne: Watch Them Hit the Skate Ramp
Showtime! Swizz Beatz is prepping the release of his new Poison album and on Thursday (Sept. 13) the super producer shares the song and video for the second single, “Pistol on My Side” featuring Lil Wayne.
The song itself is produced by Swizz and AraabMusik and is driven by hearty drums and a rolling piano loop. Weezy handles all rapping duties. “Pistol on my side, trigger finger on the job/Pistol on my side, trigger finger on the job/Pistol on my side, leave a nigga on his side/Mr. Always High, but nigga, you can call me Slime,” he rhymes on the chorus.
The video shows a series of random scenes, as well as Tune and Swizzy turning up while the New Orleans rapper rides the track. Alicia Keys makes a cameo tickling the ivories. “Pistol on my side, you don't wanna hear it harmonize/Numbers don't lie, the No. 1 Stun-, nevermind,” Wayne spits. “Tunechi in this bitch, eyes lookin' like Konnichiwa/Swizzy on the beat, I'ma beat it like policia.”
Swizz recently shared the cover art for the new album on Instagram, which features some hand-picked artwork. "#POISON official album artwork done by @cleonpeterson its titled END OF EMPIRE .. End of empire is about upending the system, taking power back from the corrupt and fighting for justice,” Swizz captioned the cover. “#POISON = POISE ON !! Let the Madness begin."
The release date for Poison has been set for Nov. 2. The LP also features the previously-released single “It’s Okayyy.”
