Curated Grayson Jones
Here at SwanoDown, we listen to a ton of music on a DAILY basis. And during these days, of course, there are standout tracks. Below you'll find the 10 compositions we feel you should check out tonight (or soon). We find these artists to be the most cutting-edge. And oh yeah, this is in no particular order... You decide!
Literary gifted artists like AJ Smith, SEA GIRLS, and Braxton Cook, are all featured today.

Tajh Spikes- Jungle

“Took a while ‘for I ever really cared. Had to throw my hood up just a lil’. Running ‘round like a genin on Naruto. They tell me some things that I do know.” - Tajh Spikes

Ruffin- Black Tea

 “ I can’t concentrate, you must be sent to heaven sent. Goosebumps on your neck, you smell like peppermint. Feel so good but this is more than physical. You make me a better individual.” - Ruffin

Desta French- Reasonss

“Whispers are sweet nothings in my ear, one might do crazy s*** with no fear. Strength up through hardships won’t disappear. Rather hold something less cavalier.” - Desta French

Goodboy Noah- Attitude

“Tell me if I did something wrong ‘cause we ain’t been us for so long.” - Goodboy Noah

Sophia- Questions

“Two years’ gone by. Now funny how time flies. No time for goodbyes. You’re no longer here, you’re no longer with us!” - Sophia


“I am sick of drugs. I'm sick of bad habits. I'm sick of getting looks, because I don't have it! I wish I was just a child, mom and dad, can you make me smile?” - SEA GIRLS

Braxton Cook- Gold

“All things that matter don't mean that it's gold… Love can fade fast if you let it grow old.” - Braxton Cook

AJ Smith- Cooler

“I hope that I made a good impression on you, and if I didn't baby, maybe I can get a redo and we can meet back here in a day or two. And when I walk through that door next time…” - AJ Smith

Eddie Berman- Broken English

“...And your boots got polished, we emerge from the forests, we burn with the smoke in our eyes. But it's onward we march, there's no use in us looking behind. No, we're just looking for something to kill all this goddamn time. So we build pretty machines that could stand between us and our lives.” -  Eddie Berman

FCG Heem - Hood Story

“I tried linking with rappers but the industry’s just too fake, opps linking up with opps - they do whatever just to be safe.” - NoCap
