Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

As Dante Swave prepares for the release of his upcoming EP, Take Your Soul, the introspective rapper delivers the lead single to the project dubbed, "Vibes" produced by Shhbang Records.  

According to Dante the song is about energy, self love and the idea of being alive: "The way you can catch a vibe is through energy, any feeling that makes you feel good in any sort of way. Aesthetics within your visionary perception. Meeting people you connect with, having fun, and being comfortable with yourself is how you catch a vibe. It all starts with self-love and loving the idea of being alive," Dante explained. 

After taking his high school by storm rapping a diss record at the school talent show, Dante Swave became inspired to pursue rap seriously speaking on real life situations and violence that he witnessed in New York as a youth. 

"I started rapping when I was 13 years old because of life situations that made me put a pen to paper like violence in the streets of NYC and common teen depression," Dante Swave explained. "I made a diss track towards someone at my old high school in retaliation for making a song about me. I  performed it at a school talent show which made my whole school go crazy, making me realize this is what I wanted to do" 

Rolling into the Summer, Dante Swave is prepping for his Take Your Soul EP and encourages everyone to live their best life."Be yourself and live your best life, this world is like an alternate reality just play it the best way you can and have fun."
