Swizz Beatz graces one of three covers for PAPER Magazine’s “Music Issue” along with Santigold and Joe Jonas. Swizz talks to writer Jozen Cummings about his growth as a musician, the new album Haute Living, and married life with Alicia Keys.

On being married to Alicia: “Being married to a public figure made people take a second look at me.”
On the album: “You can hear on this album, those beats aren’t 15-minute beats.”
On working with Jay-Z, Kanye and Lil Wayne…: “I thought that it was time people know who my friends are and who I’m affiliated with.”

MissInfo: Whoa…Swizz bares all! Who knew he had those headphones tatted on his chest? Not surprising that he has matching Keith Haring characters on his shoulders. As for these pull quotes (which were sent by PAPER in a press release), they seem out of context.

Santigold‘s cover story (written by Jonathan Durbin) covers her signing with Roc Nation, her new album (that Jay-Z calls “an important album”), and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa in support of Kenna’s Summit on the Summit organization.
