: At first glance Swolf is just a kid from a small town outside of Washington D.C. that doesn’t fit the “rap” stereotype but is so unique in every aspect of the word. The self proclaimed “Mr. Laid Back Rap” didn’t start out as a rapper but as a poet. The Virginia native began writing poetry in the 7th grade to cope with family issues and everyday life; it was that emotion plus his always calm demeanor that would later help him develop his smooth flow and clever lyrical ability. Swolf is influenced by the art and process of making music itself and credits many artists for the way he creates. His subject matter stretches from love and heartbreak to partying and living life; Swolf covers it all. With lyrical influences such as Jay-Z, and the Notorious B.I.G. conscious flows such as Mos Def and Common and a work ethic of a hungry up and comer should have, Swolf is the full package who plans to bring Emceeing back to the forefront but adding his own little twist to it. A laid back, but also in your face artist, whose witty lyrics and flow demand your attention as soon as you press play.
