Ridin – JackkSwaGG

JackkSwaGG at work
Hailing from Austin, Texas, JackkSwaGG is here to share some amazingly catchy hip-hop. “Ridin” is the song that most caught my ear. First off, his lyrics are backed by an amazingly intense beat filled with 808s and hood-electro synths, produced by R.V.3. The beat alone is brilliant, but JackkSwaGG’s vocals take it to another level. The lyrics revolve around his Chevy, where he raps that he spends much of his time. While his vocals dominate, JackkSwaGG employs a call and response as well as periodic layering with other voices joining his own. This keeps the vocal soundscape very interesting. A quick warning: if you’re not interested in songs filled with curse words, then skip this one. Otherwise, you’d better check this one out!
