In the midst of everything go on in the world, Boston legend OG Swaggerdick has provided constant direction and positivity. With this, it only felt right that the culture needed to hear some of his opinions on different topics including du-rags, Lil B, Twitter, and more. Below is “The World According To Swaggerdick”:
To get things started, who are your top 5 du-rag idols, seeing that you are a du-rag icon yourself?
Well for starters, the realest nigga of all time is Bodie Broadus. He’s from The Wire and he’s a legend when mentioning the du-rag.
St. Lunatics non-dread members, also (Nelly Ali & Kyjuan). You know that Nelly was a very good du-rag sporter as well as the rest of em. Definitely coordinated the colors with their fits. True all stars.
Allen Iverson definitely top of the chain. He the only nigga I know that had his own du-rag. Mine is coming soon, btw. I’m pretty sure if Iverson was allowed to ball in the duey he would’ve, as well as a slew of other NBA players.
We must acknowledge Da Brat for holding it down for my fellow women in the world. Really one of the only ladies to rock a du-rag. Not the only one, though.
The whole old Rockafella definitely a good pack of du-rag rockers, too.
How do you feel about Eminem in the du-rag? And R Kelly?
R.Kelly definitely could be added to the list, but with that being said I do not agree with Robert’s ways of living. He’s very risky, but I will step in the name of love.
All very legendary. How do you feel about Lil B?
Niggas are asking rhetorical questions, I see. Lil B has gotten me through some of the darkest times. We should all aim to be as positive as he is. He’s a rare person and a great role model. Also a lot of people stealing Lil B’s swag. They better pay homage.
Very true. If you were president, what would be your first act as leader? How would OG Swaggerdick as president change the country?
Free education and healthcare for everyone. Also, I would give everyone a clean slate when it came to debts and such, call it the Start Over plan or some shit, and allow the underprivileged, such as everyone here struggling, to have equal chances and opportunities. Also, I would make a law where gentrification could not stop the culture of a certain town it happens in, and keep homes affordable.
Who would you make your Vice President?
Hmmmmmmmmmm. Chance The Rapper as of right now.
Bodega of course. That’s home and family. ’47 is the 2nd best place and also Casablanc is slowly, but surely dope. We used to have amazing places, but they all shut down. We still try to keep the spirit alive, though.
I feel. Casablanc is a really cool place because of how they let different people set up shop all the time. Why do you think Boston is such a special city?
Boston is dope cause it’s home, and also you can raise a family here. It’s a dope place and our laws aren’t too bad from what I know.
What project/album was the most fun to make?
Swaggerdick 2016 cause it was the first time I was really making a project produced all by me.
Are you a fan of comedy?
Yea I like comedy.
What comedians are your favorite?
I don’t really have a favorite.
Would you ever try stand up?
Yea, I would actually. Soon as I get funny imma do it.
I could definitely see you doing it. Why doesn’t Christmas do it?
Cause he hasn’t beat the last level of Toy Story yet.
What are some of your favorite twitter accounts?
Hmmmm, I’m not really looking at much twitter as I used to, but I would say Zack Fox, Brandon Wardell, Teanna Trump, Father, Lil B, Tyler The Creator, Vince Staples, Desus Nice, The Kid Mero, and I don’t know who else. Honestly, Twitter is just full of angry people nowadays. I might be missing some people, but I wanna unfollow everyone and just follow Nick Lachae.
Aren’t you friends with Wardell and Zack Fox?
Yea, we all bonded over our love for G-Unit condoms and B2K’s Pandemonium album.
What do you think of Zack Fox’s new grills?
They scr8. He bringing team light skin back from huge L’s so shoutsout Bro.
Where do you want to be in five years?
I wanna be happy and successful. I want my own TV show. I wanted to by then have toured the world and traveled a lot. I got lots of work to do. I don’t have life figured out at all. I just know I wanna inspire the masses, and lead the way to peace and positivity.
You remind me a lot of Tyler or even Yachty with your energy. What would your TV show be like?
Tyler is a genius, and Yachty is really outchea. I fuck with him heavy. My show would just be every random thought in my head I find funny brought to life.
Have you ever tried to start something on YouTube like an original series of yours?
Not yet. I plan on it.
Have you started a new mixtape or album yet?
Have you always lived in the Boston area?
If you had to erase one point in rap history, what would it be?
Idk if I’d erase any moment just cause without one you couldn’t have the other. Plus KRS-One got some fire songs, I won’t lie.
A lot of artists protest the Grammys, so what are your thoughts on the Grammys and what are your top 3 favorite Grammy moments?
It’s cool, but who cares. Until Lil B gets a Grammys I don’t have any top 3 favorite moments from them.
Back to du-rags, we can’t forget about Justin Timberlake in the yellow du rag. You feeling this one? He’s also got the OG Swaggerdick signature hoop earrings.
Lmaooo yooo I remember this. Nigga, he got Mecca on. JT was really Da Niygga. Yo, I need some Mecca in my life woooooooooooooooow. Yes I’m rockin with this. Nigga look like Grandmaster Sexy from 2Cool.
As a fashion icon yourself, who has been an icon to you?
Frankenstein from Big Daddy. What I imagine a Detroit Drug dealer from ’88 look like. Old people.
Aye Shoutsout them Young Thespians baby. I gotchall for life!!! OOOWWWEEEE!!!!
