Swizz Beatz... an Artist?

Some of us are lucky enough to be great at a few things, but This renaissance man they call Swizz Beatz is truly a jack of all trades. Swizz has been a master of music production since he was SIXTEEN-YEARS-OLD. (Yes, correct. When you were in middle school, high school, college... gettin gully with your friends, chanting "Stop! Drop! Shut'em down, open up shop!! The young man who produced that was in HIGH SCHOOL! Doing the samething you were doing... kinda.) Not only a producer, but also a decent rapper, with car knowledge and a collection that would make any male jealous.
Soooo... he sounds good... he rides good... and he dresses well, affiliated with KidRobot. He's a contributing artist for the clothing line (designed the logo).

From what I read, Swizz has always been a fan of art and a collector. But I was oblivious to his skillz!! His work is AMAZIN! Being a fan of Warhol, I'm not surprise to see the influences, and the piece with Jean Michel Basquiat (which is DOPE!!) And from what I understand, he debuted this new stuff over Twitter. How often does that happen. But he donates the money he earns from his paintings to the Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation.
