It seems like most artists’ introductory singles start out as underground hits, but once the majors take notice, hello superstardom! That pattern has been most recently proven with Atlanta trio Fast Life Yungstaz’ catchy rap-dance combo Swag Surfin’. Already a hit in the Dirty South, it’s gotten FLY signed to Def Jam and inspired various homemade dance videos. Likely one of the thousands to view these videos on YouTube, self-proclaimed “Prince of New York” DJ Self has enlisted three Brooklynites and a Harlem native to freestyle over the record. After Fabolous, Juelz Santana, and Red Cafe bend their flows around K.E.‘s tenor sax beat, Maino admits he’s kinda tired of the overuse of “swag,” but proceeds to describe the distinctive style of a BK street soldier. So, readers, who’s got the most “swag,” the original’s Dirty Southerners or this freestyle’s Northeastern lineup?
