Swade! What up Big homie.

Swade
Chilling man not a whole lot going on today which is rare.

Marv
No doubt. First off, thx for getting up with me. We actually haven’t chopped it up since FlavorFest 2 years ago.

Swade
Wow I didn’t even realize it had been that long.

Marv
Yeah mang, not good though lol.

Marv
Let’s get into. For those that are reading, tell the readers who you are.

Swade
Well I’m 23 and I go by the name of Swade, rapper and producer recently signed to STRT TRBL and a recent graduate of the University of Florida.

Marv
Congrats. How long have been producing and how did you get into production?

Swade
Well I always had some sort of instrument in the house due to my grandfather being a musician himself but I was probably 15 before I ever made a beat and I started making them because I wanted to rap lol.

Marv
Cool. Who have you worked with?

Swade
Mang Thisl, Alex faith, chad Jones, Canon, Yaves, SPZRKT, L9, social club, D Tropp, Rmg as a whole KB and I’m sure I’m forgetting some people lol.

Swade
Few joints in the pipeline right now as well.

Marv
Bet. I see you are apart of Strttrbl. How did that come about?

Swade
Well I’ve known SPZRKT and L9 since high school, they’ve been great friends of mine through out the years, and they were actually the first two signees to the label and I was doing work with them so my name came up in a few conversations with the owners. I ended up meeting Mickey who’s one of the owners on a trip to tampa to chill with L9 and we started to build a rapport from that day on. Just from us talking and building that relationship and me sending them music from time to time lead us to partner up. I loved the sense of family Luna ( the other owner) and Mickey showed and the goals and mission of the label were right in sync with mine.

Marv
Wow ok. Question, wasn’t SPZRKT with a group before?

Swade
Yeah him and L9 were in a group with another artist named Elhae their group was Movement of Truth .

Marv
Ok ok. Mang I see you dropped a project recently. Dope stuff. Are phasing out of production and leaning more to rhyming?

Swade
Thanks man and I would’nt say phasing out at all, I love production and I love rapping I want to be able to do them both at a high level and rapping was the first love, I think it also allows me to pick my spots as a producer a bit better, Im not chasing placements and I can work on the projects I want to work on.

Marv
Mang with a full roster at STRTTRBL I wouldn’t chase placements either lol.

Swade
LOL right!!

Marv
Whats a day like for you in the studio?

Swade
Man it depends, If  i’m in production mode just creating freely not really with a specific project in mind I might knock out 2-4 beats each of them taking around 2hrs start to finish. When it comes to specific projects ill usually take more time. When it comes to writing I rarely ever do that in the studio

Marv
Hmmm 2-4 beats in a day?

Swade
Yeah thats not every day tho, sometimes I go home with that goose egg lol.

Marv
Yeah mang I feel you. These days, if I knock one good one I’m gucci lol.

Swade
I feel you!!

Marv
What are you using for production?

Swade
FL Studio, my midi and a few choice vst’s mostly nexus sylenth and omnisphere.

Marv
Ok. Whats you opinion on producers using cracked software?

Swade
Im not gonna knock anybody’s hustle lol, I did it for a time and eventually resolved to pay for those joints as I made money and its part of the reason I really only use 3 vst’s lol

Marv
I feel you. I know cats that feel its wrong and I know dude that have no conviction about it.

Swade
Yeah and I’ve been on both sides haha.

Marv
So, what can we be expecting from you in the near future fam.

Swade
More music man, in terms of volume theres probably gonna be more from the artist side than the producer side for now but so ill give America The TRBL some time to breath, and doing shows, but theres definitely a few joints I’ve produced coming up right around the corner.

Marv
No doubt. Any last words?

Swade
For anyone who’s aspiring to work in music Id say develop a thick skin, don’t let any one persons praise or detraction do too much for you. Stick with it, be faithful in the arena your in.

Marv
Amen brutha. Thank you for chopping it up with me fam.

Swade
No problem bro thank you!
