Swizz Beatz Explains Why He Named His Son After Nas


Swizz Beatz was just one of the few presenters at the 2nd Annual VIBE Impact Awards. The New York producer’s touching words were some of the most personal of the evening. Aside from being a frequent collboarteoar with Nas, Swizzy shares a unique bond with the rap king.

“My son’s name is Nasir because of this man right here,” Swizz said at the event. “I just wanted to be able to look at greatness everyday beyond music with my son, so I thought that was the name that was amazing.”
