DJ Swizz Beatz has always been very interested in art, and wants to bring the art experience to the meatpacking district in NYC.
According to Page Six, Beatz plans to launch a SoHo House-style club for creatives across the spectrum: art, film, fashion and beyond. SoHo House was first a start up in the city, but eventually transformed into a stomping ground for the rich and famous. Beatz’s project aims to encourage impoverished youth in the area, and will be available free of charge.
Beatz stressed the importance of a space that fosters artistic creativity to Page Six:
Artists are being forced out of New York because of the cost of living, so I want to create a new community to help them.
