After revealing the official artwork for his upcoming album Poison yesterday on Instagram, Swizz Beatz caps off his 40th birthday celebration with the release of the first single from the project—”Pistol On My Side” featuring Lil Wayne.
Along with the official audio, visuals have also arrived for the new track featuring Tunechi.
The super producer initially previewed the song a few weeks back via social media with a video of himself bumping the track while riding around with the windows down. While multiple snippets have hinted at what to expect from Weezy’s latest bars, they have also showcased the eerie instrumental that features a looped vocal sample from Wayne’s verse on the 2009 hit “Forever,” which is where the title of the Swizz song comes from.

In an interview of his own with Billboard, Swizz told everyone what they can expect from the new material. “I think y’all getting ‘A Milli’ Wayne, Mixtape Wayne, and not only on my project, but his project, too,” he said.
