"When it's all said and done, I want people to look
back and be able to say there's a Brent Faiyaz
record for every single emotion, situation, and
conversation – for anything you're going through.
I want them to say, ‘You can find a song in that
catalogue for anything.’ That's what I want to be."

Since 2016, Brent Faiyaz has been steadily
ascending to R&B stardom. Now that he’s reached
the top, he’s feeling Larger Than Life. Returning
with his fourth album, with the likes of A$AP
Rocky, Missy Elliot and Timbaland, the revered
artist is taking the next step in his artistry:
curating an authentic project that will stand
the test of time. Covering our Winter 23 issue,
Faiyaz sits down with producer extraordinaire,
Swizz Beatz, to reflect on the art of maintaining
discipline in an industry that isn’t afraid to leave
you behind, grabbing a Grammy-nomination for
his first ever collaboration and his dreams of
getting into the studio with Stevie Wonder.
