Submitted by on September 5, 2013 – 2:34 pmNo Comment

On Friday, August 30, 2013, Swizz Beatz was featured in the Hip-Hop Improv Show – TAKE IT PERSONAL presented by Hot 97′s Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theatre and school in NYC. Improvisers from Cipha Sounds’ team “A Tribe Called YES” (Anthony Atamanuik, Abra Tabak, Lydia Hensler, Brandon Gardner, Phil Jackson, Christian Capozzoli, and Cipha Sounds) reenacted stories originally told by Swizz Beatz.

During the show, producer Swizz Beatz told stories about his Rikers Island visit as well as an interesting cocaine episode you wouldn’t want to miss. “I really wanted to make sure I had the show up and running before I invited Swizzy to the show. I know how much he is into art and performance and I wanted him to get the best experience. He killed it as he knew he would… Talked about how to make that transition from Rapper/Producer to world diplomat.” said Cipha Sounds.

Music was provided by DJ Drewski of Hot 97 and Sirius XM.
