It's good to be Swizz Beats. Very good. The  mega-star producer, rapper and designer (he collaborates on men's shoes with Christian Loubiton!) scooted into my office just a few days before he played Yankee Stadium with buddy Jay-Z, had new wife Alicia Keys throw him a surprise 32nd birthday party and was honored at Us Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers bash on September 15 -- where he also took over the 1's and 2's, spinning his own hits!

On his list of things to get off his chest? Working with Beyonce and Mary J. Blige on their new albums, where he keeps his armory full of platinum record plaques and how it's going prepping for his new baby with wife Keys (shhh! she's due in November).
