6/17/2014

Alicia Keys' producer husband Swizz Beatz has been celebrated in his native New York after he was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame and handed his own street honour. The Money in the Bank hitmaker headed back to his old stomping grounds this weekend (17-18May14), when he was feted by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. at a special Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday (17May14), alongside fellow honourees, Dexter actor David Zayas, actress Rachel Ticotin, stage star Priscilla Lopez and New York Jets football player William Colon III. Swizz Beatz, real name Kasseem Dean, also attended the unveiling of Swizz Beatz Street. Taking to his Instagram.com page to share a photo of the street sign, he wrote, "I would always say I came from nothing, but I was wrong the entire time! I come from something and that's the all mighty BRONX SWIZZ BEATZ ST located on Grand Concourse please stop by". Grammy winner Beatz received the honour in recognition of the "extraordinary accomplishments" throughout his career.
