Swizzy has been talking about this worldly collabo since last year but his Haute Living album took a back seat to some of his other business ventures. While he stayed busy producing tracks for everyone from Nas and Hov, there’s still no telling if his album will see daylight in 2013. However, he recently previewed what’s believed to be his collaboration with Bono and Kanye titled “Skyscrapers.” Watch the clip above. (Props to Nav!)
Watch Swizz explain the track and video after the jump…
“I felt like there was a lot of things going on in the world that was bigger than all of us. So as of right now, we’re not in the video,” Swizz says of the song’s visuals, which he has already begun working on. “It’s like an art piece. It’s like a documentary of the world as we don’t know it, but kind of know it. You know these things are going on in the world, but you don’t really know to what degree they’re going on in the world. So I took time out to piece up a couple of visuals that represent that — moving visuals. Right now, me, Bono, Kanye, we’re trying to figure out what’s the right way to have that message.”
He also talked about it with Papermag.
