Today is Swizz Beatz‘s 41st birthday and the superstar rapper, producer, DJ, business school graduate, husband, dad, philanthropist, and former NYU professor has a ton to celebrate. Obviously.
Not only has he had an incredible career that spans approximately 25 YEARS, he has a beautiful family, his health, amazing friends, and let’s face it — a dope ass art collection. In the past couple of weeks alone, he’s been nominated for Producer of the Year at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards, dropped music for the Godfather of Harlem soundtrack, and appeared at the Revolt Summit. Life is lit!
Moments ago he hit Instagram to remind us that he’s blessed and highly favored, saying of his big day:
“I have my own relationship with God🤲🏾🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂#41″
