Over a beat by Josh Letjoux, Dixon expresses his intention to “drop hits” until he “drop[s] dead.” But while the refrains express an unbridled joy in stunting, there’s a darkness lapping at the edge of the verses. “They kill little homie,” he raps, “How the hell we gon’ recoup?”
In a statement, the Virginia MC explained his desire to capture the feeling of “children banging on a lunch room table.” He wrote,
“I usually don’t have one person produce all the instrumentals on songs of mine but Letjoux isn’t just anybody. Living in Richmond, this beat Josh made just sounded so Virginia, I had to rap over it. It sort of fills the void of wanting to make a song that had the feel of children banging on a lunch room table.”
“Swangin'” comes with a visualizer by Alex Futtersak. It shows a gold car that is swinging (swangin’?) from a gold chain while floating through the sky. Check it out after the jump.
