    Default Swizz Beats to remix knicks theme song

    It’s showtime!” XXLMag.com has learned that the New York Knicks tapped Swizz Beatz to upgrade their longtime theme song, “Go NY Go.”
    Following in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]‘s footsteps, Swizz was asked to bring his signature sound to NY’s famed basketball team.
    Asked how the deal came about, the superproducer’s rep told XXL: “[Swizz] is from from the Bronx. [The Knicks] always try to get people that have that connection, people who they feel could really pay homage ’cause they represent that culture. Plus, [with] the new sizzle that they have with Carmelo [Anthony] and Amare [Stoudemire], they want to give people an updated but still vintage song that reflects the old [song]. It’s just a lil’ more spicy.”
    The track is set to premiere in time for the playoffs, which begins on Saturday, April 16. Swizz is also set to film a short video for the theme along with several of the Knicks all-stars this week, that will appear on the MSG network shortly. —Jesse Gissen

    Swizz Beats are probably my least favorite production studio in mainstream hip hop.

    In terms of the tunes they release they are pretty crappy but their patented sound is a really nice sound imo.

    It's like g-funk for 2010.

    Pretty hyped for this beat to drop!

    Default wow.........

    Ya, that was really awful. That and the fact that Amare looked incredibly awkward during that lol.

    I'm hoping that wasn't the official version, but I don't see why they would be doing if it wasn't.

    I was expecting some sort of a hardcore, real beat oriented remix. What's up with the techno? Who's producing this, Akon?

    Not impressed at all. However, I think he was trying to make something for people of all ages to listen to. I doubt he was trying to make the billboards with this...

    hopefully it's not the finished product and the vids sound quality was part of the problem.
    wishing thinking...i know.
