Reebok back. And despite the departure of the rotund rapper who made the proclamation, the sentiment still stands. Credit that to Swizz Beatz, whose indefatigable energy put together a team that included not only Ricky Rozay and Tyga, but Allen Iverson and Shaquille O'Neal, back in the fold for the first time since the '90s.

Swizz had a lot to do with that.
