Tate Kobang just released his new mixtape Since We’re Here last week, but he’s already got an eye on his debut album. The 300 Entertainment signee spoke to The Baltimore Sun and revealed that Swizz Beatz will be executive producing his debut LP.
“We’re about to work on this album,” Tate said. “Swizz Beatz is executive producing the album. We’re looking to drop around September. Looking to do my own tour. I know I got a couple of tours coming up that we’re working on getting on and everything. We’re going to shoot everything for this mixtape. I’m going to be everywhere, man. People are going to get tired of seeing me.”
The Tate Kobang and Swizz Beatz connection was first revealed in an Instagram post back in January. Clearly the two hit it off as Tate told The Baltimore Sun that Swizz spoke glowingly about the “Bank Rolls” rapper.
“Swizz was like, ‘Man, I’ma let you know, I get a million artists come across me every day, and there ain’t nothing special about them,” Tate remembered. “There’s something about you. You it! You got ‘it!’ It is what it is.’ I was like, ‘Man, whatever ‘it’ is, I’m glad I got it, because this is crazy.’ We gonna link up and we gonna make magic.”
Tate Kobang joins a number of artists who have been working with Swizz Beatz on new projects for 2016. Swizz has already put in some work with the likes of Kanye West and Schoolboy Q.- xxl
