Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Swanny Ivy. Texas born rapper, singer or something. I don’t even know anymore. I’m honestly whatever I feel like when i wake up that morning. Any type of title/genre feels like a restriction so lately i just been thinking fuck it. I’ll just be a medium for whatever frequency is sent my way. To sum it up, i’m just a guy with an obsession with energy. Euphoric lows, stage diving highs, everything in between. By the way, It’s dope to be back chatting w my guy Lex!
Where did the new single come from?
I was in G Clef’s studio with Blues and Saint. Saint was just showing Clef a few of his beats and brought this beat up that sounded groovy as fuck. 30 seconds in I already had the hook in my head and I was like “bro send that to me and you got a song”. Few weeks later I went to Saint’s studio and wrote the concept out. I felt like making something fun but with a message. I knew some people were gonna think it was wack or too poppy but i don’t make music for those people so it’s whatever. If anything it’ll grow on em.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
TOO much content honestly. I’m trying to break the habit of hoarding music. I can be real sensitive about my work so i can make a song and literally sit on it for a year before i decide to drop it. This song was finished in March and I released it late September. For no reason. I’m done holding on to music tho. The new music keeps getting better then i feel the need to drop old shit just to get it out the way. Plus the world looks like it’s about to end so i gotta hurry up. Me and Blues said we gonna have a song war and start dropping songs rapid fire. That should solve that.
What’s on the horizon for you?
For whoever isn’t familiar with me, I run with a whole diverse crew, IVY Music Group. REEK, THEABYSSS, PaintItBlues, and we just added the little homie Samurai Duck. He’s like 16 but he can body damn near anyone in his lane. We have an album on the way produced by G Clef. That’s a huge deal since we’ve never all really been on a song together, much less a whole body of work. We dropped a song called “Lil Baby” on soundcloud but thats not even the tip of the iceberg honestly. Each song is like it’s own universe/anthem, it’s crazy. Other than that we all have our own solo singles that we’ll be releasing in the meantime. Me and Clef made this song in L.A called “Givin It Up” back in January and some people are saying it’s one of the best songs we’ve ever made but who knows man. Like I said, I’m a hoarder so the best is yet to come.
