From the birth of Hip-Hop culture, New York has been the home for new and innovative music, art and more. Over the course of four decades, New York has given the world Run DMC, 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Fabolous, The Lox and more. Going further, Brooklyn has specifically given a lot to the culture that we all enjoy and respect. BK is the home of Jay-Z, Mos Def, Jam Master Jay and of course, The Notorious B.I.G. More recently, Brooklyn has introduced the world to the likes of Bobby Shmurda, Joey Bada$$, Casanova and Tekashi 6ix9ine. Brooklyn’s own, Swaze, is breaking into music and making his voice heard loud and clear.
On his standout record, “Jakkboyz”, Swaze exhibits all the grittiness, aggressiveness and determination that has made Brooklyn rap what it is today. “Jakkboyz” showcases Swaze’s natural ability to connect with the listener and shake up the industry. On the record’s opening bars, Swaze lets everyone know how he’s feeling when raps,
“It’s time to prove I’m the best out. If they don’t play this, Irving Plaza is my next route. DJ’s getting shot, Promoters getting shot, Bartenders getting shot, Strippers getting shot. I’ll catch a stain just to get my spot.”
From beginning to end, the record bangs and has the potential to be in rotation around New York the entire summer.
If you’re rocking with “Jakkboyz”, you can check out Swaze’s entire catalog on Soundcloud. Other songs like “The Warm Up” and “Don’t Make Me” show the same promise that “Jakkboyz” does. Be sure to check out Swaze’s video for “Jakkboyz” and follow him on Soundcloud.
