SWAGGER JONES Hip Hop is a tough game to be in these days. Countless fakes have taken their toll, and the soul of the culture is constantly under attack from corporate entities and major labels. With those being the most prevalent in a long list of obstacles facing any new face that releases an album into the mainstream, new artists of substance have a more difficult time than ever getting their voices heard. So begins the story of Swagger Jones, emerging on the hip-hop scene with his critically acclaimed debut album The Solution, this past July. His sophomore album, Project Mayhem, ups the ante even further as he tries to level the playing field and show Hip Hop culture in the Pacific Northwest can still produce the goods. Representing Victoria, BC, Canada, Swagger stays true to his roots with real, honest stories told through strong lyrics, coupled with catchy, melodic hooks, leading the charge with blazing production representing some of the top names from the Left Coast; Swagger puts it all together with a unique style that has started fire through the game with an intensity equal to that which he has clearly brought so many times to the 100-Proof Hip-Hop studios. He has dazzled crowds across North America, doing shows with such hip-hop heavyweights as Too Short, Obie Trice, and K-os, as well as many of the underground favorites including Afu-Rah, and Phoaroah Monch, and fellow Canadians, Classified, Maestro Fresh-Wes, and the Raskalz to name a few. Swagger was also featured during intermission at the MMA showcase, the "Rage In The Cage", in Phoenix, AZ, which was shown worldwide on pay-per-view. "The Solution" to your musical dehydration has finally emerged... The bell has rung, round two is underway!
