Sitting, in probably one of the warmest placest in New York City when not inside your home, a truck with heat turned to the max, in an effort to compete with 3 degree weather and Mother Nature button on chill, a matured, well-rounded man gazes through the windshield with the face of intense evaluation. He turns his head, with a raise of one brow, says "You know why I need this music to pop off, to provide the opportunity for everybody with talent to have a platform to share that talent". Spoken like a true person of selfless-service, the "Can't Call It" rapper, PlayBoySwag, has been calling it alot lately with his right on sound, charisma, and musical melodies he chooses to use in his songs.
Hailing from Harlem, NY, with long stints in Jacksonville, Florida during his teenage years, PlayBoySwag has a mix of New York's grit and Florida's Southern Hospitality. A proven songwriter, he has penned for the likes of Yung Berg, French Montana, Sheist Bubz, and more to name a few. His sound has been accepted by the public as something of hip hop soul. As we decide on a restaurant to sit and talk, he reflects on a Cadillac he drove in Florida. He recalls it was in that Cadillac he fell in love with melodies because of a local song that would play on the radio. However, it was New York which gave him the life experience of how to deal with such a cold world.
Born a crackbaby, PlayBoySwag was expected to die by doctors due to his lack of weight and small heartbeat. His grandmother, refusing to lose an innocent child, took the boy home; today he stands at 6'2 240 pounds lifting 400-500 pounds at ease. His workout is that of a street brawler, consisting of dips and pull-ups in the local park. He is educated, attending a college on a Basketball scholarship ; he left to pursue music full-time. PlayBoySwag states he "never wanted to regret" not pursuing his dream.
These days PlayBoySwag is making the rounds with his first nationally distributed single "Can't Call It" produced by multi-platinum producer Jahlil Beats and mastered by Grammy winning Chris Gehringer. The record has charted on the MediaBase charts and as of this writing became a top 15 record on WFXE in North Carolina in addition to being added to rotation at multiple other stations in the SouthEastern region of the United States. The record has over 10000 digital spins on various platforms to include Live365, iHeartradio, and Spotify. Internationally he has been played on BBC radio, NJR radio, and Canal FM in Paris. He has been playlisted on over 50 digital stations with more added each day. DJ Envy hosted and mixed the record at PlayBoySwag record release party in NYC which he had presented by one of NYC's premiere promoter in Adante Ace.
