"It was really cool because Drive is not just a car show. It’s our show. It’s our baby. And we were able to execute that vision together. We were able to be partners, we were able to water this amazing, beautiful plant together. And that was really fulfilling on a soul level, on an emotional level, and on a life level," Nasir told BET.

The show is available to stream on Hulu.

Swizz has two children who are out of the spotlight.

After getting married in 2010, Swizz and his wife Alicia Keys welcomed two sons together: Genesis Ali Dean and Egypt Daoud Dean. While Genesis hasn't shared his goals for his career, Egypt doesn't want to follow in his parent's footsteps in the form of a music career.

"Well, I love music, but I don't really want to be a musician. I want to be a basketball player. It's fun because I like playing stuff, so when I hear it and I'm like, 'Oh I want to play something,' then boom, it's on the piano," he shared while being interviewed on The Jennifer Hudson Show.

Even though he may not want to pursue music as a full-time career, Egypt is credited as a producer on Kendrick Lamar's 2016 album "Untitled Mastermind".

Maybe fans can expect a Swizz Beatz x Egypt collab in the near future?
