Bi(nh)-Annual Philly Swain Appreciation Thread

Let us not forget about these true demonstrations of what a "battle rap bodybag" is supposed to look like:


Swain vs Passwurdz (269,180 Views) (What?!)

Swain vs @The Saurus (166,937 Views) (Sorry Saurus, but you obviously know lol)

Swain vs Syah Boy (121,484 Views) (WHAT?!)




1st Observation: How TF are the views so fucking LOW on these absolutely CLASSIC battles, regardless of the fact that they are so one sided?

2nd Observation: How did Swain not end up swaying the entire direction of what rap battles would end up becoming just on his freestyle ability alone (besides his sub-par performance against Daylyt, which stopped his momentum [combined with the fact that was supposed to be his retirement match])?

Definitely the shit for a time. I remember his blogs from his house in the burbs or w.e

Swain's so thorough that when Hollow and Daylyt tested him, they went to another level.

That opening round against TheSaurus has the best face jokes ever said.

"it look like you and a rabid dog, tried to eat out the same bowl."

The image of a starving TheSaurus, so poor he has to stoop to eating out of a dog's bowl...and then the dog bites him. Now that's an INSULT.

That Syah battle was a body. Also, he had a solid one-rounder against DNA recently.

i think it's just a joke about that a rabid dog bit his face and the bowl's an easy way to put them in a situation together

not that deep

I actually liked the Pass battle his performance was off but I felt his bars went over a bunch of peoples heads. He was saying some shit in that battle

nothing swain said was ever really too "deep". it's just a good old fashioned insult with funny imagery is all that @Spacelab was pointing out.

I was lucky enough to see swain at the syah and daylyt battles. when he battled day he brought his own camera crew. he took the last hit off his blunt walking in the door to the venue and started rapping about 3 minutes later.
