Generally, the South is used as the scapegoat for the garbage that is played on the radio. In most cases, people feel Southern hip hop has contaminated the music industry forever.
This assertion could not be further from the truth. If the radio is your main source for music, well, you clearly have issues.
If people think the south is full of rappers like Gucci Mane, Future, and 2 Chainz, then you are sadly misinformed.
By no means is that a diss, but I think it’s clear to say neither: Gucci Mane, Future, or 2 Chainz, will not be crowned as lyricist any time soon.
The south has a collection of talented emcees. These emcees put in hard work daily. This is the beauty of covering Indie hip hop.
It’s beautiful to see young and the hungry artists on their grind. One young emcee that comes to mind is, Young Swift.
This brother has been putting in work! The dopiest part about it is, his music gives the public a break from to norm.
Since 2010 his career has continued to climb, from being cosigned by hip hop vets, to doing city-to-city tours.
Earlier this year, the news broke that Young Swift inked a deal with Def Jam. Of course this was great news, because he earned it.
In addition, Young Swift has good people around him; it’s definitely something I’ve noticed. His people have clearly done a great job of separating his brand from the norm.
We’re told he’s been in the studio working hard on his debut album; I highly doubt he will disappoint.
With that said, it is a pleasure to announce Young Swift as the face of Skewln Magazine for the month of October.
