Toronto trio Swamp Thing bring real rap to the fight in new album The Octagon
Toronto, ON – Toronto’s OG trio Swamp Thing are back with a brand new album titled The Octagon. Over the last few years, Toronto has been one of the leading hubs internationally for the music industry and entertainment world. After the emergence of artists like Drake and The Weeknd, people all over the world were forced to really pay attention to what was going on in the city and embrace its culture.
What many people didn’t know, however, was that there was a strong culture of rap and hip-hop which was brewing far before Drake had ever even hit the internet. Swamp Thing, a hip-hop trio comprised of Savilion, Chokeules and Timbuktu, have been one of Toronto’s most consistent staples in the underground rap scene for years. Their unique style of quirky rap and niche sound has made them stand out in a scene which is flooded by low fi drums and melodies.
The Octagon was completely produced by acclaimed rapper/producer Ghettosocks and is an ode to real rap music. It is full of witty bars, boom bap drums and awesome swamp raps. Each track swings perfectly back and forth from the three individual personalities of Savilion, Chokeules and Timbuktu to perfectly create one massive rap beast, Swamp Thing. Whether you are a fan of Toronto rap, or a fan of the culture, give Octagon a listen up top.
