Swizz Beatz turns 35 today—happy birthday, dude! Whether crafting smashes for hip hop's heaviest hitters (DMX, Eve, Busta Ryhmes) or for sultry R&B divas (Whitney Houston, Beyonce, even wife Alicia Keys), the Bronx native can always be counted on for fresh beatz.

We've rummaged through Swizz's lengthy discography, dating back to 1998, and compiled 35 of Swizz's hottest joints. Plus it's Friday, so if you're hitting a party tonight, look no further for the perfect playlist!
