Vancouver, BC – West Coast mainstays Swollen Members drop new visuals for their D-Rec-assisted record “Supreme Beings.” Some die-hard Swollen fans will be familiar with the track from a social media campaign a few years back, but the new Big Shot Music-directed video is brand new. You can find “Supreme Beings” on Apple Music, Google Play and other digital outlets.

Lyrics: Swollen Members – Supreme Beings

Madchild

I’m still flying high like I’m on PCP
Life’s a grind but I’m coping like a PVP
In the past I’ve been known to smash a TV screen
But now that I’m sober promoters, they on easy street
Yeah Leader of the dwarf Lords, I’m a demented phantom
They call the kid the little Hulk I got a temper tantrum
I’m on b-boy shit, I bust a full flare
We blowin’ up like fuckin Hitler in a wolf’s lair
White boy, wish I had a constant tan
Runnin shit like Marky Mark in fuckin Contraband
I’m a supreme being your team fleeing cause we be the dream team
Brown brown take one snort it’s going down down
I’m on another level
You bunch of rubber devils
Hire John Angel, I’m insane a fuckin rebel
Every day’s the weekend I’m takin one hour for lunch
Cocky lil’ motherfucker pack a powerful punch
Yeah Madchild you better stand back man
Cause I’ve been killin it since sour keys and Pacman
Stand above crooked villains like Batman
S&M it’s going down like that man
Yeah don’t trip, Swollen Members B-A-X-W-A-R put you BWs up!
Battleaxe Warriors worldwide Muthafuckas.

Prevail

Victorious decisive
Reprisals from the eyes of war
Icy glacier cap raps, Snap the branch in ancient forest
Days before us people walked on fours, Stalked Prey
Hunt to kill, built a cave for winter snow there’s no delay
Spring follows, Summer’s next, Dawn of Hex
All of mother nature’s creatures eat the word of father time
Speeches never reach us, now that’s what I call a diatribe
Teaspoons of iodine
Well aligned and now they love to see it all
All they ever do is get me hype like a room of vipers
Straight out the tomb like tootin’ tune, time to pay the piper
Harm and not so calm, patterns break the scale
Prevail you a nail bomb
Prevail’s calm, but never fails
Sharp horns and tails, the devil’s in the details
The retail sales are meant for silk screens and ball caps
If this shit was easy, which is not, then you’d all rap
My army’s always marchin’ forward, watch the cowards fall back

About Swollen Members

Written by Jason MacNeil

The meeting of two West Coast rappers fuelled this talented Canadian band. In 1996, Mad Child was a solo artist performing in San Francisco when he returned to his hometown of Vancouver. There he met Prevail, who was gaining attention for his energetic live shows and abilities. The two joined forces and headed to San Diego to perform at the annual B-Boy Summit. The group was initiated into the Rock Steady Crew, one of only three bands to do so. Following this, the group released three independent singles before releasing Balance, their debut effort in 1999 on Battle Axe Records. A world tour and hundreds of performances followed. In 2001, the band released its second album, Bad Dreams. The same year they received a Juno Award for Best Rap Recording for Balance. In 2002, the band performed with Nelly Furtado and won a second Juno Award for Best Rap Recording. Monsters in the Closet followed in 2003, and Heavy appeared in 2004. Their music has been featured on soundtracks, computer games, and other outlets. They’ve also worked with members of the Beat Junkies and Jurassic 5, among others.
