Swerve & SYG - Fan Appreciation

Well, damn. We've put in some serious work over the last 2 years.  It really just kind of happened. We didn't really plan it all out like that, we just made it up as we went along. Now that we are on the horizon of multiple releases from both myself & SYG we wanted to say thank you.  We appreciate everyone's support, and this has gone on to be more than we ever thought it would be.  Every tape we have ever released is up for free download on our Bandcamp for the next 7 days. Everything will go back to normal at the end of this month.  Thank's everybody. peace fam.

Swerve Talks LyfeGoes(Cycles)

It was beautiful. I sent this beat I had from Rav.P over to SYG. I didn't know if he was going to do anything with it. When he first sent me his vocals for LyfeGoes(Cycles) the very next morning I didn't know if I was going to like it, use it, write to it, record it, complete it. It had no title. it had no place. I had no idea it was going to end up on Cold Winters & Warm Whiskey 2. Until I pushed play. A few hours later the song was done. Needless to say, I was pretty inspired. I knew exactly where it was going to go. It felt perfect. It feels today the exact same way it felt the day I made it. Perfect. This song could apply just as much this year, as when I wrote the song last year about where my life was 2 years before that..ha. Only the universe knows how it all falls together so perfectly.. Life Goes.. In Cycles.... and even though some parts get frustrating.. its beautiful right? 'cause I always end up right back here with you.. and I'd venture to say thats right where i'm meant to be for now. peace fam.  thanks for the talk. - Swerve 916

Swerve - Winning, Still. (prod. D-Rock)

I was recently inspired by Johnny Depp's character 'George Jung' in the movie "Blow." It ends with a quote from this monologue: "But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent". It stuck with me, by the time D-Rock sent over the beat w/ the Sade sample it was to perfect. Here it is. Thanks for listening.

"Still carving my path.. Don't let it hurt, let it heal.."
