Timbaland accepts Swizz Beatz's beat battle challengeNo word yet on when it'll go down.
Jul 14, 2017

Earlier this year, fans were gifted with an hours-long beat battle between Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze on Instagram Live. And now another duo will go head-to-head, vinyl-to-vinyl.

Yesterday, Swizz challenged his fellow super-producer Timbaland to a duel of their own while appearing onstage during the Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather press conference in New York. He said:

"Timbaland don't want any smoke. Tell him he can get this, too. Don't talk behind my back."

Today, Timbo accepted. Sharing a video to his social media accounts, music from Game of Thrones can be heard playing in the background as Tim' says: "You have woken up the king."

His caption reads: "I'm #wit#da#smoke ! 💨"

No word yet on when the battle will go down, but after Just Blaze and Swizz Beatz's competition, the two spoke on knowing how to work a crowd; making quick and correct song choices; and hoping to inspire other DJ-producers.
