Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have welcomed their second son Genesis Ali Dean…

It looks like ex-wife Mashonda may be giving singer Alicia Keys a bit of her own medicine. According to – Mashonda and Swizz Beatz have been hooking up right under Ms. Keys nose.  (more…)

Watch Alicia Keys aka Mrs DJ AK-47 rock the 1s & 2s at Yotel NYC a few weeks back. Swizz Beatz and Busta Rhymes join Alicia & Co. for her big city bright lights NYC debut. Can’t front, her music selection was on point. Better than some of you DJs out there.

Previously, you were able to catch snippets of Swizz’s music video for “International Party” in the commercials for Reebok Classics, however, the full-length video has finally been made available for your viewing pleasure!  “International Party” features R&B superstar Alicia Keys (as promised), and reportedly cost close to seven figures to make, directed of course by Chris Robinson.  The song is a selection off of Swizz’s forthcoming album, entitled, “Haute Living” – where he actually plans to release each track from the LP individually, rather than all at once.  Interesting…

Check it out here:

Super-producer Swizz Beats is determined to get a collaborative effort between his wife, Alicia Keys, and singing sensation Adele.  It helps that the British singer/songwriter has sold over 2 million copies of her second studio album, “21”, which immediately hit to the top of the charts as the follow-up to her Grammy-award winning debut with “19”.  Alicia Keys recently confirmed that she is seriously considering recording a song with Adele, which has fans in a frenzy.  As Keys states to Kiss FM,

“She is a great lady,” Keys states. “I definitely see that there is a strong possibility we will do something together.”

The idea began as a “rumor” Swizz Beats was spreading around, but soon caught hype as everyone responded fanatically about a possible duet between the two – a highly anticipated matchup that is already creating a buzz before either of them stepped in the studio together.  Swizzy said recently in a short interview with MTV News,

“I just know that you know greatness when you see greatness, and teaming two greats up together, it makes history,” he says.

Swizz hasn’t been too off the mark this year, so hopefully we get to hear this song soon.  Keep it locked to MSDTV for updates.


Alicia Keys and hubby Kasseem ‘Swizz Beats’ Dean were photo’d out recently with their adorable son, Egypt, who is now 8-months old.  In an effort to dodge cameras from taking pics of the tiny tot, the couple eventually gave in as photogs were able to catch a couple of quick pics before the family was escorted into an SUV.  These are the first pictures of Egypt to surface – (not for nothing, but thank God Alicia has such strong genes)…

Look for more of the pictures after the break:


DJ Cassidy brought in the big 3-0 last night at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in NYC,  sponsored by Hennessy Black. He was not alone though.

DJ Cassidy, who was all decked out in canary yellow last night , appeared to be having the times of his life. Amongst the guest, Swizz Beats and New Edition hot the stage to perform.
