Swizz Beatz's suffered a calamitous performance in New York this week as a speaker exploded in the midle of his set.

He was performing with rapper Waka Flocka as a part of the VH1 Save the Music Foundation's Songwriters Music Series in Manhattan when a speaker suddenly started spewing out smoke.

Thankfully the concertdidn't need to be scrapped, with a technician able to fix the equipment of stage.

Alica Key's husband appeared in good spirits though, with the producer apparently joking that the stagehand was "literally saving the music" before continuing with the concert,

The event raised funds for victims of superstorm Sandy and other performers included Busta Rhymes and Sean Paul.
