The battle is on. After months of speculation, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland have agreed to face off in a beat battle dubbed #imwiththesmoke.
On Thursday (July 13), Swizzy appeared onstage during the Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather press conference in New York, where he decided to issue a challenge against Timbo.
Later, he reiterated the challenge in a social media-shared clip.
“Timbaland don’t want any smoke,” said Swizz. “Tell him he can get this too. Don’t talk behind my back.”
One day later, Timbaland responded in a video of his own, which was soundtracked by the “Game of Thrones” theme song.
“Swizz,” he said. “You have woken up Tim Mosely. Challenge accepted. I’m with the smoke. That’s right. You hear that ‘Game of Thrones.’ You have woken up the king.”
Now, check out some the beats the two are making already. Who is winning so far?
