Swizz Beatz & Lil Wayne Unleash "Pistol On My Side" At Long Last

After much deliberation, the long-anticipated Swizz Beatz/Lil Wayne banger has arrived.

Swizz Beatz has been teasing this sinister concoction for a minute, originally using it as a warning sign for Timbaland. Fans were immediately drawn in by the firey Lil Wayne vocals, tearing into a militant drumline with renewed hunger. In itself, a Swizz Beatz album is an inherently nostalgic affair, a notion bolstered by the addition “mixtape Wayne.” Gone are the dressings autotune. Instead, Weezy flexes his prowess, proving time and time again that his presence is something the game sorely needs. 

With Tha Carter V reported to surface on September 21st, it’s no surprise that Swizzy is leading f with this genuine banger. For one, he’s been teasing it long enough. Secondly, Weezy needs time to stretch his legs. The sheer hype surrounding Carter V is enough to all-but-guarantee a strong first week, but it doesn’t hurt to receive a cold reminder how merciless he can be. Peep the single now, available in select international markets. 

Swizzy’s Poison drops imminently, featuring DMX, Young Thug, Kendrick Lamar, The Lox, and more.

Quotable Lyrics

Pistol on my side, you don’t want that thing to scream at ya
Laughing when you die, boy, my pistol a comedian
Pistol on my side, now he lying like the media
Clips longer than encyclopedias, you’re reading ’em
Double barrel, long barrel, short barrel, medium 
We ain’t hitting licks, we beating them and repeating them
Sugar in the cfee, sugar in the Morphine
Sugar sweet codeine, it ain’t purple, then I’m barfing
