According to an interview in Billboard, Bronxite, Swizz Beatz, will be the executive music producer for EPIX‘s new series, Godfather of Harlem, with the popular Forest Whitaker playing the lead of Bumpy Johnson. The series follows Johnson’s story after being released from prison and returning to his neighborhood that is run by an Italian mafia.

Beatz told Billboard that it’s an honor to be a part of this series because he feels that he shares a lot of stories with the lead character considering his upbringing in the Bronx and Harlem.

For the soundtrack, he plans on using sounds from around the globe.
