When Swizz Beatz Was 17...

 

MTV just finished filming Swizz Beatz's "When I Was 17" special. We've got an exclusive first look at the episode, plus some quotes and throwback pics he probably stashed deep in his mama's attic when you read on...

 

Wow.  These throwback pics are something serious.  Heres a few quotes from Swizzy about what he was doing at the age of 17:

"When I was 17 I started off DJ'ing for high school proms, then I started DJ'ing the college parties, then I started DJ'ing the clubs and I'm not even 21 yet."

"Usually I would go through the back of the club because of my age and set up so when people come in there's no question, there's no ID." 

 

Here's an exclusive clip from the upcoming episode...

 

 

He's come a long way...

He actually was a cutie at 17. How did he get uglier? Did someone break his nose and that's why it looks crooked now? Maybe it's just arrogance, that can make you ugly.

Swizz is FUGLY! I don't see

Swizz is FUGLY! I don't see this marriage lasting long. I think Alicia wanted a Family but I don't see her staying with this character long. That's my opinion. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Alicia has great judgment.

Dang, ya'll, he don't look

Dang, ya'll, he don't look THAT bad. lol. It's not like you'd run down the street shreiking if you saw him, the nose (just like with Tiny) throws the symmetry of his face off. I can't knock the hustle, he & I are about the same age. I remember he was 19 when RR start blowing up, strong work ethic even as a kid.
