Surging underground superstar, swerzie, gifts fans with some brand new heat.

Hailing from Chattanooga, TN, a town with a very vibrant hip-hop scene, Swerzie is somewhat the odd man out stylistically when compared to the city’s frontrunners. Obviously, heavyweights like Isaiah Rashad and YGTUT carry the torch for the city with their heavy southern raps, priding themselves on more conscious and lyrical matters, while burgeoning underground superstar Swerzie is coming up in the same city, totally ignoring these established conventions of what has made other Chattanooga artists famous.

His tracks are heavy and fast-paced with booming bass-lines, energetic and raucous ad-libs, and he is known for his prodigious and wild live performances. “LOOKOUT!” continues this narrative for Swerzie as his first release of 2019. He has been relatively quiet lately, but it will be interesting to see where he goes now that the ball is rolling again. Swerzie has a very strong team of management and producers behind him and it is only a matter of time until he is mentioned in the same breath as other underground greats.
