Swizz Beatz ft. Drag-On - Hard Knocks

Posted 8 years ago
Swizz Beatz

After leaving his label home with Ruff Ryders to sign with producer Swizz Beatz and his label, Full Surface, rapper Drag-On hopped into the studio to record two songs for Swizzy’s solo album, One Man Band Man.  One made the album (Bust Ya Gunz); the other did not.  On the unreleased song, Hard Knocks, both artists remind the phonies that “if ya soft, get lost”.  Although Swizzy’s verses are once again suspect, he continues to excel at his production craft, constructing a beat that sounds like a darker version of Beyonce and Jay‘s Upgrade U.  For fans who are enthusiastic over the collabo,  Drag-On hopes to release his Full Surface debut later this year.
