Swizz Beatz Had $700K In Checks Sitting In A Shoebox

Early in his career, Swizz Beatz survived on cheap ramen noodles — but unknowingly had a fortune sitting untouched in a shoe box.

The super-producer told Angie Martinez on We TV’s “Untold Hip Hop Stories” that he mistook his royalty payments for worthless promotional material.

“I thought the checks being sent to my house was Publishing Clearing House checks,” he said. “In the hood, they’re sending you checks from everywhere. Like, every week you won a million dollars… My grandmother used to make me just save them in a shoebox. So, I had $700,000 in the shoebox. I never got royalty checks ever in my life before. Nobody told me. So I’m sitting here eating ramen noodles and I got $700,000 sitting in a shoebox?”

The show airs Thursday.
