Swamp G is a hip-hop artist from Austin, Texas. He is the co-founder and member of Condo Boys Entertainment, Yaki Mob, and Shonen Swamp. Influences from Lil B, Chief Keef, and Yung Lean form the basis of Swamp G's music.
Swamp began making music in 2011 on his iPhone in GarageBand. With Young Kamasutra, he formed Yaki Mob in 2013, after which he began releasing singles on Soundcloud, growing a small but dedicated fanbase. Three years later, in 2016, Swamp released his breakout "Swamp Story" mixtape, garnering many new fans because of its lighthearted, genuine, and relatable themes and tone. The same year, Swamp joined forces with longtime friend Yung Dylan and began releasing music as the duo Shonen Swamp. This came to a head in December 2016 when the two dropped the breakout hit "Megazord (Remix)" with a high-profile feature from Ugly God. Since then, Swamp has released a high volume of music, rapidly gaining recognition and new fans both locally and across the world. Fans enjoy the eccentric, energetic, and positive vibes combined with clever wordplay and technical ability exhibited by his songs.
Swamp has played 5 shows so far in 2018, proving to be a charismatic and charming force on stage. In a year's time, he hopes to be known as not only one of the leaders of the Austin rap scene, but also as a respected member of the Based community.
