Swizz Beatz Beams With Pride Announcing Verzuz Is Bigger Than SNL


Verzuz bigger than SNL, says Swizz Beatz.

Just how good is the Verzuz platform? Well, co-founder Swizz Beatz thinks it’s good enough to rival the highly syndicated NBC comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live. That’s a big claim, but it’s easy to see why he might be feeling proud of all that the platform has accomplished especially following their latest installment of the show, which brought in millions of viewers from around the world.

He shared his feelings of accomplishment during an Instagram Live earlier this week with the other founder, Timbaland, as they discussed the huge impact of The Isley Brothers and Earth Wind and Fire battle. Swizz even thinks that the franchise has shot past SNL.

“We bigger than that,” he said, beaming with pride before adding: “Our numbers beat SNL already. Our numbers is bigger than SNL. That’s not even, like, cap. That’s real talk. It’s already happening.”

He also said he doesn’t want to rank the battle because it brought its own unique mark to the platform. What he’s more interested in is celebrating all that the two bands achieved and how many people were appreciative of their effort to entertain.

“It’s not about the best Verzuz,” he added. “It’s about celebrating the creative. So some nights we gonna have the Super Bowl, some nights we gonna have the Pro Bowl, some nights we gonna have the Rose Bowl. But we’re gonna have a good time,” he continued.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next virtual battle, which is expected to be an ode to marijuana as Method Man and Red Man come head to head on April 20. Then it’s on to an exciting ’90s R&B square off, which will see SWV take on Xscape on May 8 at 8 p.m. as Season 2 roars on.

Alec Baldwin to Run for President?


He plays Donald Trump on TV, but does Alec Baldwin want to become the President of the United States himself one day?

The 59-year-old actor, who last month won an Emmy for his satirical portrayal of the U.S. leader on SNL, retweeted on Friday a cryptic tweet that may or may not be a joke.

“If I run for a President, think of how entertaining the debates would be,” said the message, posted on the Alec Baldwin Foundation’s account.

More than 3,000 people liked the comment. One person tweeted on Saturday, “I don’t want entertainment. I want a REAL president!” The post was retweeted on the Alec Baldwin Foundation’s account.

The actor, known for his outspoken liberal views, has been among the most vocal celebrities who has openly criticized the U.S. leader and former TV star—and his supporters.

“I have an immigration strategy: Everyone who voted for Trump, leave,” read a tweet posted on the Alec Baldwin Foundation’s account on Wednesday.

In 2008, Baldwin said on CBS’ 60 Minutes that he still has not given up his childhood dream of being a politician.

“There’s no age limit on running for office, to a degree,” he said. “Something I might do, one day.”

In 2011, Baldwin’s rep he would not rule out the possibility of the actor running for mayor of New York City.

Months later, Baldwin nixed the idea.

“I’ve lost my appetite,” he said on his podcast, Here’s the Thing With Alec Baldwin. “Plus the people that are running for mayor—I know this is terrible—I look at them and I don’t see myself in that crowd. They’re like a guy on a date that you can tell he just can’t wait to get his hand up your blouse before even the lights go out in the theater. They’re all just so horny for it. Horny for their own ascension. Whereas for me, I’ve got a job now…I’ve got a good job.”

Other celebs have also floated the idea of a 2020 political run—Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who jokingly announced his presidential running mateTom Hanks, on SNL, and Kid Rock, who teased the website http://kidrockforsenate.com in July.

“I give up money and fame and position and success, I give up this wonderful life I have now in exchange for the chance to really change things,” he said. “Yeah, I’m not quite sure you can anymore.”

A Tribe Called Quest – Conrad Tokyo (We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service Album)


[Verse 1: Phife Dawg]
Conrad Tokyo, Sapporo, pistachio
Just done mash a show, Dawg is off on sabbatical
Rather watch the Nixon shit than politicians politic
CNN and all this shit, gwaan move with the fuckery
Trump and the SNL hilarity
Troublesome times kid, no times for comedy
Blood clot, you doing, bullshit you spewing
As if this country ain’t already ruined
In lieu of these mumbling, fumbling
Swearing they’re the greatest
Online they debate us, if we different, then we’re haters
We ended our hiatus, the dogs looking for food
The nucleus is here now (ooo)

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Toleration for devastation, got a hunger for sin
Every nation Obama nation, let the coroner in
Crooked faces, red and blue laces for the color of men
Just embrace it and die alone, song of Revelation
Reverends and cattles racing
Devils and demons and Deuteronomy
Fumigate our economy, ‘lluminate broken dreams
And manifest all insanity, look around
Sayonara tomorrow, it’s just blood on the ground
