SWN is an undeniable talent and a name that is quickly rising through the world of UK rap. The producer, songwriter and artist has earned his stripes with work alongside Unknown T, Loski, Krept and Konan as well as leading the charge on a string of his own releases over the last year. Teaming up with fellow Camden sensation and chart topper Dappy for his new single ‘Fame’, SWN brings things to a whole new level for 2022 as he affirms his status as the ‘next to blow’.
eaning on the melodic and harmonious rap flair that is shared in differing ways by SWN and Dappy, ‘Fame’, produced by Goon Cartel and SWN, begins with an infectious melody that is quickly backed up with banging 808s and vibrant percussion. Lyrically exploring the struggles, they face during the ‘come up’ and the changes in how people treat them, SWN and Dappy go back-to-back on the verses with witty wordplay, adding an array of adlibs to create a flawless blend for the single.
