Swizz Beatz Wants To Give Hip Hop Icons One Million Dollars Each

Super producer Swizz Beatz, recently said he wants to work hard to commemorate Hip Hop icons with one million dollars each.

He revealed his plan during a sit down with Joe Budden on instagram live and his vow has got eyes raising among Hip Hop fans.

“I want to raise a million dollars for each icon that started hip-hop — [DJ] Kool Herc on down. The fact we’re not paying taxes on who started hip hop shows we don’t f*cking really love hip-hop,” he said.

“The fact we don’t pay taxes as artists to those icons that paved the way took the lower cut for the music that allowed us to feed our families. We need to be paying taxes to the creatives of hip-hop that gave us freedom of speech to go forward.”

Swizz added, “Melle Mel, Grandmaster Flash and Sugarhill Gang, minium a million a piece.”

Swizz suggestion has sparked debate among hip hop fans on whether rappers should start paying taxes to the founders to be a participate in the culture or not.
