Toronto street rapper Swagger Rite enlisted Flipp Dinero and Yella Beezy for his top-down, turn-up anthem, where the three trade bars about their topless automobiles. It’s the first high-profile collaboration for Swagger Rite who built a fanbase without relying on features. “Drop Top” demonstrates his infectious style and proves that he can hold his own with rap game heavy-hitters. The song was recently featured on HBO’s “Euphoria” show trending worldwide!
The West Toronto native gravitates towards raucous rhymes over heavy, staggering beats, unlike the melodic bars typically coming out of Toronto. Swagger Rite started rapping at the age of 13, finding equal inspiration in technical, old-school rappers like Big Daddy Kane as aggressive trapsters like Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane. In recent years, Swagger Rite began to find his voice, and his fans, on SoundCloud, sharing anthems like “Friends” and the mournful “Judah,” which samples XXXTentacion’s “Jocelyn Flores.” Prior to the NBA Finals, Swagger Rite gained traction with the Toronto Raptors anthem “Finals,” which earned over 200k plays on SoundCloud. When he’s not celebrating the Raptors’ recent championship win, Swagger Rite is preparing an upcoming EP, due to release in the Fall.
