Notes

While a lot of fuss has been made over the word swagger and the implications if spewed forth from the mouth of a forward-thinking hip-hop head, Core Wreckah has been busy putting his own spin to the word.

On this song, a melangé of sparse drumming (in 7/4 time, a pattern oft-unexplored in hip-hop), guitar licks, and muted basslines, Core re-imagines the word, re-christening it as swag 2.0.

The result is a sweltering, acute critique of our social condition; the song is a direct attack on the implications of focusing on the self while ignoring the whole. Core successfully takes the listener on a reflective trip, pointing out some of the factors which – in his opinion at least – are way more poignant than the amount of 'swagger' one possesses.
