Who knew that when the multi-talented Swizz Beats launched his contest "Share the Studio" in 2006, following the release of his debut album, that he’d someday be sharing a studio with the most successful Britart representative of the ‘90s, Damien Hirst? That’s exactly what he revealed—somewhat ineptly by his own account—on his Instagram last week. The pair was in the process of creating one of Hirst’s spin paintings. When we interviewed him on teaming up with Hirst, Swizz said he was happy just to be learning. Not to diminish Hirst’s surely vast knowledge on throwing paint on rotating canvas, but we thought you could learn how to do spinart at the county fair? Whatever. Whether or not this storied alliance goes boom and bust, we decided Swizz’s collaborations with artists should not end in London. Here are 10 more Artists Swizz Beats Should Work With.
