Dean Swift "The Brief" Video - HipHopDX


Boston natives, Dean Swift (emcee) and Mike Irish (producer) team up for their first collaborative project. Cover/tracklist/download link after the jump. - 2DopeBoyz


With his new, Booth-sponsored mixtape so close to release that I can taste it (OK, not literally), Beantown emcee Dean Swift returns to raise anticipation for its arrival with one last world premiere off the project. On title track The Low Pro, Swift schools listeners on his uniquely low-key, yet effective approach to the game, flowing over a dreamy piano-synth instrumental by Mike Irish. If you’re digging this laid-back musical manifesto, be sure to check back with us tomorrow (the 23rd), when The Low Pro (the mixtape) hits the Booth for free streaming and download. - DJBooth.net
