Sway – Still Speedin’ (Official video)
One of the most respected names in UK rap and music industry game changer, Sway,
returns with new single Still Speedin’, which is released on 4th December on 3beat Records.
Still Speedin’ has already been named Zane Lowe’s Record Of The Week and made it onto
the B-list at 1Xtra.
The single samples Loleatta Holloway’s ‘Love Sensation’, which was made famous by
Black Box who sampled it on their 1989 #1 ‘Ride On Time’.
Sway goes in on the track with his signature lyrical word-play, demonstrating his prowess with
some serious punchlines. Causing a huge buzz online, the lyrics have got the likes of
Lewis Hamilton taking to Twitter to support the track. Currently in the Top 20 of the Shazaam Chart,
the song has a lot of heat building behind it and is looking to send Sway storming back into the charts.
Bringing two of the UK’s finest rap talents together, British rapper Kano jumps on the track and stars
in the remix video. Another remix, due to drop in the coming weeks, features American rapper,
producer and entrepreneur Lupe Fiasco. Other remixes include Vato Gonzalez, Doorly, Kill The Noise
and Zane Lowe.
Still Speedin’ is the first official track taken from his forthcoming The Deliverance album which is due
for release in 2012. It will be Sway’s third album to date.
Born Derek Safo, the Mercury-nominated north London rapper has been a stalwart of the music game
since the age of 16 and is credited by peers and critics a-like as a trailblazer in the UK urban scene.
Paving the way for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32 and Chipmunk, his ability to cross over saw
Sway beat the cream of international hip hop talent such as 50 Cent and The Game to win MOBO Best
Hip Hop in 2005 and he took the crown for Best UK Hip Hop at the 2006 BET Awards.
In addition, Sway was the only featured rapper on Lupe Fiasco’s Billboard No.1 Album “Lasers”.
