Swizz Beatz and Santigold cover Paper Magazine


Check out the new cover for the latest copy of Paper Magazine: Swizz Beatz shares the cover with Santigold in the upcoming issue that’s due on newsstands on June 22, 2011.

Swizzy looks rather suave in his black suit and cheeky bow tie, which makes a change from his usual attire of trendy clothes and Reebok Kamikaze III sneakers. (In case you didn’t know, Swizzy is the new Creative Director of Reebok Classics). Santigold also maintains the smart look whilst standing majestically on the front cover. She wears a black and grey blazer jacket and a variety of luxurious rings.

Feature Excerpts:

Santigold on signing to Roc Nation:
She recently signed to Roc Nation, the management company headed up by Jay-Z. She says the new boss is happy with the early mixes he’s heard. “He said it was going to be ‘an important album,'” she explains. “I wanted to make some epic songs. The whole record isn’t like that, but a few songs definitely are. I wanted to make them feel big. Peter Gabriel-big.”

Swizz Beatz on his creative partnerships:
“Man, I crossed bridges in the industry that should stop water,” he says. “Me coming from the South Bronx and partnering up with Christian Louboutin — we’re not supposed to be in that world!”
