In 2007, Swizz presented his first album One Man Band Man. He recorded another album, Poison, in 2018. Simultaneously, the celebrity dedicates much time to music production. In 1999, he launched his label Full Surface Records and later founded Monster Music Group.

He also was a partner of Kidrobot company, selling designer toys and clothing. Swizz adores collecting art along with painting in his free time and donating money from selling his artworks to charity.
In 2004, Swizz got hitched to music artist Mashonda Tifrere, a mom of his son Kasseem. Moreover, being still a husband to Mashonda, he fathered son Nasir with Nicole Levy and daughter Nicole with Jahna Sebastian. In 2008, the couple separated but their marriage was officially dissolved in 2010.
Alicia Keys and Beatz knew each other for ages before they started dating in 2008 and got engaged in May 2010. They tied knots on July 31 in Corsica, France. Later that year, they welcomed their firstborn, son Egypt. And in 2014, the boy was joined by brother Genesis.
Alicia revealed that when they were in their teens, she considered Swizz to be annoying. But later, romantic feelings arose between them. As the man was still officially married to Mashonda at that time, the woman accused Keys of destroying her family, but the 15-time Grammy winner assured that she started relationship with Beatz when he already broke up with his wife. However, now, all the disputes are already settled and the both women are on good terms.
