He has been tipped by critics as “the future of rap”, with the ability to take concepts and merge rhythm and rhyme to deliver punchy, original material. With story-telling skills reminiscent of Slick Rick and Nas he is definitely gonna be the topic of conversation about who up next!
SWENDAL, attracted critical acclaim for his hypnotic, hard-hitting self-titled SWENDAL, which placed him at the top of an emerging new niche in the hip-hop/west coast rap scene.
He moved into the major league with his concept album Hardball. Focusing on the literal parallels between baseball and rap terminology, it signaled a sea change in his career and significantly upped his audience reach.
With his work widely available on iTunes, Google Play and all other digital platforms, SWENDAL is an artist heading for the big time.
