“Life a movie, I’m Lucas / I war with any star; can’t put me in a box like new kicks”

Sway came with FIRE at the Lupe Fiasco Lasers release show in New York and had the crowd in the palm of his hand, with this captivating freestyle.

Despite lack of any ‘overground’ recognition in the UK, Sway continues to come with consistent material and his feature on Lupe Fiasco’s new album is a massive achievement for the boy from our neck of the woods; North London. Could 2011 finally be his year? SME hope so.
