Following the release of his debut track/video “Drop Top” featuring Yella Beezy and Flipp Dinero, Sony Music Canada/Records rapper Swagger Rite has shared his raw and unfiltered second single, “In Love with the K,” featuring Memphis, Tennessee rapper BlocBoy JB. BlocBoy JB is best known for his song and associated viral dance craze “Look Alive” featuring Drake, which peaked at number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2018.
Riding a whirring, noisy, lumbering trap beat, Swagger Rite shows off his tempos on “In Love with the K,” alternating clipped bursts of syllables with longer phrases as he addresses individuals disrespecting his team. As the track moves, Swagger Rite’s trance deepens, his voice mutating into a chopped-and-screwed bellow.
Earlier this year, Swagger Rite shared a video for “In Love With The K” which racked up over 3.2 million views as a WorldStarHipHop exclusive.
Following a stellar set and stand out performance of “In Love With The K” last week for the “Canadian Showcase” at A3C in Atlanta, one of North America’s biggest and longest running hip-hop festivals, Swagger Rite continues to wake up listeners around the world with his dynamic rhymes, verses and fashion forward stance.
He recently took part in an 8 part exclusive digital documentary to air on GEM, CBC’s streaming platform, entitled The Decade of Drake where he discusses the artists influence on himself, the city of Toronto and hip-hop in general. Swagger Rite is featured on episode 3 of the series titled Taking Toronto which airs in November online on GEM and on a 1.5-hour CBC television special to air in December.
“In Love With The K” is available on Apple Music, Spotify, and various other digital streaming platforms. Check out the updated single featuring BlocBoy JB below.
Swagger Rite performs at BSMT 254 (Landsdowne/Dundas St.W) in Toronto tonight. Look for upcoming Swagger Rite songs, content and performances as he prepares to launch his debut EP later this year.
