"It's Me Bitches" (censored as "It's Me Snitches"), is a song by American hip hop recording artist and record producer Swizz Beatz. The song, released February 13, 2007, serves as the lead single from his debut studio album, One Man Band Man (2007). The single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 100 and peaked at number 83.

An edited version of the song was featured on the Madden 2008 soundtrack. The song gained popularity on So You Think You Can Dance when Robert Muraine gave a fairly lengthy audition set to the edited instrumental version of the song, and it was used again in season 6, episode 11 of Entourage.

Background[edit]

The unusual beat was created by Swizz Beatz while having fun and felt to make a song. The warping effect was from Crazy Town's Hollywood Babylon. He recalled: "I did the beat because I felt like making the beat."[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Benny Boom. Cameo appearances include Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Fabolous, DJ Felli Fel, and DJ Enuff of Hot 97.[2]
