Swizz Beatz Plays Unreleased Version of DMX's ‘Bath Salts’ Feat. J. Cole During VERZUZ

Last Sunday, the official rematch between VERZUZ founders Swizz Beatz and Timbaland went down at LIV Miami as part of Memorial Day weekend.

The two played numerous produced hits from artists like JAY-Z, Aaliyah, DMX, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and a lot more. During the battle, however, Swizz Beatz went into the vault and played an unreleased version of DMX‘s “Bath Salts,” a record off the rapper’s posthumous album, “Exodus” featuring JAY-Z & Nas.

The unreleased version featured a verse from Dreamville’s J. Cole and needless to say, he understood the assignment.

There’s no wonder on whether or not Swizz will release this version, but until we get official word, stream below.

Last month, Rod Wave released his new project SoulFly. While on a promotional run for his sophomore effort, the Florida rapper stopped by Apple Music’s The Plug Radio where he revealed that he almost appeared on Drake‘s “Lemon Pepper Freestyle,” but scrapped it and now features Rick Ross.

“I was supposed to be on [‘Lemon Pepper Freestyle’],” he said, “but I didn’t like how my verse came out. So I kind of scratched it.” Rod Wave continues, saying the opportunity to be on Drake’s record psyched him out. “I didn’t like how my voice came out and you know with a Drake feature, you don’t want to…” he said. “It’s like my first thing, it’s a big deal, have to come with it…I kind of had got cold feet, so kind of shook me up a little bit. So I was like don’t worry about it.”

Rod Wave’s SoulFly project features 19 tracks with a lone feature from Polo G. While recording the project, Rod Wave told The Plug Radio that while having clearance issues with the label, he reached out to Drake to clear track no. 13, “OMDB,” which sampled Drake‘s Take Care LP-cut, “Over My Dead Body.”

“I had to text Drake and ask him,” he said. “It be really blowing me. It don’t feel real. He like, ‘Yeah bro, I got you.'”

SoulFly is projected to sell 140k units and land on no.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts next week.

Saweetie Addresses Elevator Incident with Quavo

Saweetie and Quavo Elevator Fight

Earlier this week, footage surfaced of Saweetie getting into a physical altercation with former boyfriend and rapper, Quavo, of Migos.

The viral clip, obtained by TMZ, shows Saweetie grabbing an orange Call of Duty case out of an elevator which then led to Quavo fighting her for it before pushing the “Best Friend” rapper to the ground. Saweetie remained on the elevator floor while Quavo looked at her without giving her a hand to get up. The elevator doors open with a man standing at the entrance, but doesn’t get it in. The elevator doors close again and it is assumed that it went to another floor as the doors open and Quavo holds the elevator for Saweetie to exit. Saweetie is then seen getting up and limping away.

 

According to Saweetie’s statement, the incident occurred last year in Saweetie’s then apartment complex in North Hollywood. Saweetie revealed earlier this month on social media that her relationship with Quavo had ended. In her statement, she reveals that the incident happened prior to the relationship and they had both reconciled and have since moved past it.

“This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on,” said Saweetie. “I kindly ask that everyone respect my privacy during this time.”

LAPD is now investigating the incident and are looking to interview Saweetie and Quavo about the events leading up to the incident and the incident itself, according to TMZ. The fight may be considered a domestic violence case where both parties are deemed to be at fault. However, charges can be filed if the City Attorney is looking to press charges.
