With James Brown deceased, the Grammy award winner is ripe for the title of “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business.” We’ve noticed he’s got quite a few titles under his belt and quite frankly, we’re not sure how he makes time to produce music for the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, T.I., Busta Rhymes, Whitney Houston and other chart toppers.

Here’s a run down of Swizz’s many roles:

  • Creative Director, Reebok
