SWOE WHOA is BACK! He is on the scene with another new album release for 2019. The Syndicate Music Group artist and songwriter is not only making noise with his anticipated Black Tar Boulevard project, but he also released the official music video for the lead off single “I’m Back” that is more spoiler than spit on his return to the industry to reclaim position.

Swoe has been busy since his last project released in 2017, dropping two projects this year that are reminiscent of his initial rise to fame through his unique sound and rugged delivery. He is turning all doubters into followers and fans of his gritty wordplay and overall dominance over any track that he’s on.

#GetSOM via @TenthLetterMedia

DABABY is going off the rip in a new music video.  He is becoming one of the genre’s notable acts and his one-two punch of projects this year which include Baby on Baby & Kirk are both solid and the hit singles from both continue to keep the Charlotte artist in constant rotation.

His “off the rip” style of both lyricism and bravado are always on display, which is evident in the newly released music video he dropped yesterday for the single “Off The Rip.” The video already has over 1 million views in less than 24 hours of it’s release.

The single “Off The Rip” is from his recent Kirk album release. Directed by Reel Goats, the visual is a fast-paced delight that compliments his verbal wordplay. With DABABY even taking time to give his daughter his phone to play with in-between bars, he flexes over the Space 305 produced track while stunting like only he can from the windshield of a drop top car.

Currently DABABY is on tour promoting the album. He is on a grind that is being highly documented in his antics both on and off stage. With 2019 coming to a close, DABABY has his sights on finishing the year out strong. His presence in the game is highly recognizable, which is why he’s found himself in the crosshairs of the #SaturdaySpotlight where alongside Straight Official Magazine, we capture the lifestyle and culture of Hip-Hop.
