Savage may be considered the king of New Zealand, but this husky emcee runs the risk of wearing out his hip-hop welcome with a remix to the remix of his single Swing, which now features M-I-Yayo black sheep Pitbull. The 26-year-old Auckland native may have the swagger to get the girls to shake their moneymakers, helping the down under wonder go 3x platinum and 2x gold in the Asia Pacific, but the assist will go unnoticed as Pitbull’s charisma and double-time flow tries to rip Savage’s slow-mo to shreds. All is not lost, however, for Universal Republic’s newest signee. While the Soulja Boy-featured original remix will bring awareness at outlets like iTunes and DJBooth, Swing 2.0 will provide him help from the stage to the clubs and, hopefully, a warm reception stateside.
