"Bobby Swagg Releases New Single And Music Video, 'Cold'"

" New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The rapper known as Bobby Swagg has released his new single, "Cold," to widespread critical and fan acclaim. It has been concurrently released with a corresponding official music video. The single as well as the video has been released on the Ground Up Entertainment music record label. The official Ground Up Ent. video was shot by Langston, and edited by Matty Makeitwork of InternationalAwol.com. It is available for viewing around the world online today.

Bobby Swagg cites as main artistic influences artists such as Eminem, Ludacris, Jay-Z, and Tupac Shakur. Elements of each of these legendary performers are evident in the style and flow of Swagg's own work, which is characteristically quick, clever, and delivered with a casual ease that is part of his trademark personality. Swagg's music is thematically diverse and never trite, his topics ranging from social conscientiousness to tales drawn from his personal life, unadulterated and as non-fiction as journalism.

"For him," his official bio reads, "[rapping has always] represented a release from feelings he bottled deep inside, feelings that he knew yearned to be free."

Swagg has been making music since the age of eight. His creative compass has always gravitated toward and been founded upon lyric poetry, as opposed to catchy beats alone. His artistic integrity is intact and formidable. His debut mixtape release came late in 2012, this present offering being his most significant and powerful production to date, most definitely not to be his last.

Like his fellow musicians on the Ground Up Ent. label, music fans the world over can expect nothing but top notch production, performance, and execution from Bobby Swagg, "Cold" being a fine example of this in both sound and vision.

"Cold" by Bobby Swagg is available online worldwide. Be sure not to miss the official music video of the same name, both under Ground Up Ent.

The single "Cold" is distributed globally by MondoTunes (www.MondoTunes.com) and is available at iTunes or www.top40-charts.com for convenient purchase and download." - New York, NY (Top40 Charts)

"MIXTAPE REVIEW: Bobby Swagg (Washington, DC) – ReDedication"

"From beginning to end “ReDedication” The MIXTAPE by Booby Swagg offer some of the best Hip Hop that the indie Hip Hop scene has to offer especially for the DC area. 13 tracks with about 7 freestyles that are super dope. We realized that Bobby Swagg is a true representative for “Underground Hip Hop”, reason being, well the INTRO to this mixtape explaines it all.
A great display of dope lyrical wordplay, awesome selection of beats alongside some vicious freestyles. I describe this mixtape as a mixture of CONSCIOUS, PARTY & DOPE HIP HOP all in one. A true artist is on the rise in the DC area and his name is Bobby Swagg………….UndergroundHipHopBLOG.com

Bio


BOBBY SWAGG


  For Bobby Swagg, music has always been more than just lyrics intertwined with a beat. It was stories of unsung heroes like in 2pacs Dear Mama and pleas for better days taken from Change the World by Bone Thugs NHarmony . For him, it also represented a release from feelings he bottled deep inside,feelings that he knew yearned to be free.
  He soon realized his calling by putting pen to paper. Soon words that once lined the glossy pages of black and white composition books accompanied the stressed and unstressed beats of rhythm; and at the age of 8 the lyricist, Bobby Swagg, was born.
  His ability to dissect songs continued to aid him as his music progressed. His theory on music from back in the day was that there was always an underlying meaning in every song, and if you slowed the beat down just enough to listen to and focus on the words, every track had a message. The beat was  complementary, but the words were the heart.
  Through hard-work and perseverance, Bobby Swagg began to see the fruits of his labor recognized in numerous ways. He has been ranked #1 in Rap and HipHop in the Washington, DC area on MySpace, and has done a number of performances and radio interviews throughout the area as well.
  The defining moment came with the release of his first official mixtape The Launch in late 2011. His versatility and methodical approach has led him to write and co-produce head bangers like Lose it and modern-day ballads coupled with an old school feel, like Love Letter. He is currently gearing up to release the music video for his first single, Cold in 2013. His longevity is the result of his determination and his love of the art form that is music.
