Big $wift "Legend" LP Is All Gas, Bars & No Breaks

Big $wift is one of the most dynamic rap artists in recent memory. He’s one of the most entertaining performers out there, and his social media feeds are a must-follow. Most significantly, he is a top-tier lyricist who is always innovating in a charismatic way. Fresh off the confidence boost of rocking the Thizzler showcase at SXSW a couple weeks ago, the South East Los Angeles rapper’s latest delivers humor, charisma, and a lot of bars with a capital B.

$wift’s player rap style is built on a vicious circle of riches, both welcomed and unpleasant public attention, disposable “bitches,” and the one ex with which he continues to maintain contact. He cultivated an enticing and engaging voice while maintaining the identity he built with his 2019 mixtape “Still Servin,” which portrays a young man whose rap life provides him with all he desires, and will continue to live his street lifestyle while still serving. These are themes he returns to whilst utilizing catchy hooks and minutely detailed lyrics to keep them interesting. The thirty-minute LP “Legend” fills listeners ears with the full spectrum of his life in a relatively apathetic manner.

Legend’s production template is full of echoing beats that feel like they’re playing at a neighborhood party or something you’re bumping while driving around the city as the weather begins to warm up. $wift forgets the flashy features and sounds more seamless and smooth on “Free My  N***a  freestyle”. It wouldn’t be a Big $wift project without a mention of his manager Rosecrans Vic. “ Told Vic fuck the labels we goin to break the bank”, on the freestyle and “ I think I know why Vic think im next”.

“On East,” featuring Jefe Benzo and EBK Young Joc, is one of the stronger tracks, with a constant background mix of a trumpet-like sound that creates a more fun and fast-paced song. “Ghetto Superman”, produced by Saltreze, a track that embraces a harder rapping style, calling for a return back to a time when rap meant speaking real words, not just singing in a rhythmic cadence. $wift’s real-life struggles are reflected in this track “Got kicked out my mommas had to sleep on my sister’s couch”. A nostalgic, confident and reflective note, the ambitious rapper continues throughout the project with tracks like “Trapper Of The Year” and “AYE AYE”.
