UK Rapper Sway Dasafo

LISTEN 

I am not entirely sure when this conversation went down but I’ve been told by a source that its featured on Sway’s fourthcoming mixtape, ‘The Dotted Line’ (The African Edition).

After listening to this rather heated exchange I have come to the conclusion that Sway Calloway’s head is stuck so far up his behind that his chunky dreads are practically coming out of his mouth!

He seems to be under the misguided impression that he’s this renowned Hip Hop figure worldwide because he’s made a name for himself in the US.  

He says he used to rap, but back in the day he wasn’t up there on a worldwide level like Run DMC, LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, and Public Enemy so I’m baffled as to why he thinks otherwise. And as for the ‘World Famous Wake Up Show”- World famous??? really Sway? Never heard of it sweet heart! 

There’s this air of “What do you mean you don’t you know who I am?” vibe coming from Sway C a long with a patronizing tone (Let me educate you British on Hip Hop culture and on why I am soooo damn important!!!), which I find highly amusing but also makes me want to rip those scarves off his huge Predator shaped head and shove them down his throat.

So what if Sway Dasafo shares the same professional name as him. As Sway D tries to explain it wasn’t intentional, and like myself Sway D probably first became aware of Sway C through his presenting work with MTV, and his interviews with Jay-Z, Tupac etc. We didn’t know the ins and outs of his contributions to Hip Hop in the States before he got those gigs. 

We were born and raised on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean so why would our knowledge about Sway C be that in-depth? Why, because he claims to be “not limited to the States. I’m a globe trotter”??? LOL!!!! So you’ve left your block and racked up a few air miles luv – BIG DEAL!!!!

I would understand the fuss if a young upstart rapper came on the scene calling himself 50 Cent, because Curtis Jackson aka 50 has created a lucrative brand under the use of his professional name. In that instance he would have every right to be p**ed off.

But I really don’t see why Sway C is getting himself all worked up over Sway Dasafo.  Sway Calloway is a popular TV host in the US who mingles with the Hip Hop elite with a cheesy grin on his face, Sway Dasafo is a UK rapper. I doubt that sharing the same name will cause worldwide mass confusion. 

But I guess if Sway C continues to kick up such a stink then our Sway will have to go back to calling himself Sway Dasafo, even though most seem to have issues pronouncing his surname, including the oh so educated, oh so knowledgeable Sway C!

  1. tooo funnnny!!!!!!!!!!
    its very interesting to see a hip hop official spokeman be so unaware of whats happening abroad….
    there is no problem with them both having the same name.. in fact it heightens interest.. its a shame .. but then i’m not surprised what has sway done to promote international hip hop anyway!!!
    its a shame .. he doesnt realize who HE WAS TALKING TOO!!

  2. The man is so far up his own arse! He was talking down to Sway D. He was rude! I don’t even think it was the sharing of names that bothered him in the end. I think he was more bothered by the fact that he isn’t really known outside of the US.

    And who is he to be lecturing Semtex on “being more responsible” The man’s feisty and deserved to get drop kicked in the chest!

  3. Hilarious !!!! I’m sure when Sway Calloway played it back he must of wanted to retract it – how dumb did he sound !!! He reminded me of my nephews fightin over their toys…. How funny was the the bit where he says ” first he said he knew me and then he didn’t'” – WTF !!!, who cares.

    He may as well be fighting for the RIGHT for other guys with locks NOT to wear head scarves……. purleaaaaaase. Someone needs to remind him that the world is hugggggggggge and fighting for the exclusitivity to the name Sway is just to funny for words.

    Big up Sway Dasafo – nice editing, brap brap brap lol !!!

  4. He may as well be fighting for the RIGHT for other guys with locks NOT to wear head scarves……. purleaaaaaase.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Each time I listen to it I get more and more annoyed. He’s been hanging out with too many arrogants rap stars and its washed off on him. Damn feisty!

  5. its a shame cos i generally think sway calloway does a great job!!!

    if he had just done a bit of research!!!… a tinsy winsy bit of research he would have seen its alll goood!!!

  6. Ty says – a tinsy winsy bit of research he would have seen its alll goood!!!

    would he though – the interview sounds like he is the biggest diva and he genuinely sounds threatened. It’s funny how you see someone for years in one light and then they behave like this and you think what a prat.

    Sway Dasafo really showed him up.

  7. yeah it dont look good!!!!
    i was trying to be nice … TRYING TO NOT SABOTAGE MY OWN CHANCES OF BEING INTERVIEWED.. BY SWAY C….

    AHH FUCK IT THE DUDE CAME OFFF LOOKING BAAAAAD!!!….REALLY LAME!

  8. MWAHAHAHA! This was hella funny, some1 didn’t have his captain crunch. Sway, “wit his inexplicable headwrap”, sit ur yash down & sharrap. BTW, “d world famous wake up show” = never heard of it.

  9. his radio show WAS ABSOLUTELEY MASSIVE .. I CANT LIE!!!!!!
    FORGET ALL THE MADDNESS THEIR SHOW WAS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTNAT HIP HOP SHOWS IN AMERICA AT ANY GIVEN TIME..

  10. Ty says – his radio show WAS ABSOLUTELEY MASSIVE…

    Yes it was so you would expect his behaviour to be better than that of a ten year old… He must have bigger fish to fry….

  11. i heard of the sway an tech wake up show i thought they were two different people ..did he say that he changed his name to king tech for a while.. so sway an tech are the same person?

    and if sway was king tech? he used other names hows he gonna complain…cause someone else, elsewhere in the world is useing the name. strange. sway d needs to quick buy up all the sway domains.

  12. SIGH….JAN, THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY TIMES I MUST AGREE WITH U!!!!!!!!!!!

    I HAVE MET THIS “SWAY C” AND HE IS TOTALLY CLUELESS, ARROGANT AND JUST A MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TY, I WOULD NOT SUGGEST WORRYING ABOUT HIM…REALLY, WACK!

    I LIVE IN NYC JAN AND AH, “WORLD FAMOUS…” I’VE NEVER HEARD IT!!!!!!!!!!! DIDN’T CARE 2, WASN’T CHECKIN 4 IT….

    LET ME TELL U WHAT HE DID:

    SAW HIM AT AN EVIL DEE PARTY (EVIL DEE, DJ FOR BLACK MOON, 4 THOSE THAT DON’T KNOW) AND HE WAS WEARING THAT TIRED OLD HAT I ALWAYS USED 2 C HIM IN SO, ME BEING ME, I APPROACHED HIM SAYIN SOMETHING LIKE, DON’T U WANT A NEW LOOK? IS THAT THE ONLY HAT U OWN? (REALLY, I DID…LOL) AND HE PROCEEDED 2 SAY THAT HE WANTED 2 GET SOMEONE 2 MAKE ONE 4 HIM….I SUGGESTED MY SIS THAT MAKES CROCHET HATS AND THINGS, SO HE LEAVES THIS CORNY ASS MESSAGE ON MY CELL, GIVIN ME HIS E-MAIL ADDRESS….

    NEEDLESS 2 SAY, SHE WROTE HIM, HE NEVER ANSWERED BACK….I KNOW, PRETTY TYPICAL BUT AH….HIS WHOLE VIBE WAS JUST ILL!!!!!!!!

    ALSO, IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME WHAT HE HAS CONTRIBUTED 2 HIP HOP THAT I CARE ABOUT, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT…

    ALSO, SWAY REPRESENTS THE MANY OF US AMERICANS THAT THINK THEY SHIT DON’T STINK…SAD….

  13. SORRY I KEEP WRITIN, BUT I SAW I MISSED A POINT…THE WAY HE WAS GOIN ON ABOUT HOW HE NEEDED A HAT, OH, CAN SHE MAKE IT 2MORROW AND GOIN ON AND ON AND ON….I THOUGHT HE WOULD HAVE ANSWERED MY FRIEND BACK….LAME ASS!!!!!!!! LOL!

  14. I never liked Sway (the MTV guy)…he annoys me!!! WHAT A F**KIN DICKHEAD!!!!

    What brand is he talking about?! This muthaf**ka ain’t even a household name!!! He carryin’ on like he’s f**kin Oprah!!!

    A globetrotter? WTF us that…aren’t those the basketball players that use the red white and blue ball?

    I know this has nothing to do with anything but this is why my label and I decided to release my music in Europe….cuz now a days I’m f**kin done with America (and I’m American!) A lot of people over here think this is the only country that exists…it’s f**kin ridiculous how ignorant the American people can be….you on radio talkin bout you created a brand out you name….Negro…don’t nobody give a f**k about you like that!! Your a journalist right? Go journal something!

    Homeboy is a rapper from the other side of the world….ugh! I’m sorry for ranting like this Janice…I’m just disgusted with black american men these days….read my latest blog.

  15. Sway c is a dumb ass foreal nigga in the usa never heard his shit so he can take a hike. Sway D is a way better rapper then sway c was. Sway d is the best rapper from the city of big ben. Im from USA and like Sway d shit because he is diffrent then the fapper in the USA

  16. jst wana say that sway is well good especially his release F UR EX that is featured on adulthood yes. top man forever and i give him respect

  17. Actually “The Wake Up Show” is one of the most important hip hop radio shows in history. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, doesn’t mean anything it still made a huge contribution to hip hop. Hell i’m sure u’v head of Vanilla Ice, but does that make him a credible emcee? Sway is a legend in hip hop because he does great interview, and his knowledge of the culture is pretty vast. Plus he’s done monumnetal interviews with both 2Pac, and biggie, as well as JayZ, and Nas.

  18. Yes I’m sure the show did make a huge contribution to Hip Hop, and that Sway is a HUGE legend in Hip Hop. woo woo!

    That probably explains why he is acting/sounding like a wanker in this interview, by assuming that the whole world knows who he is, and getting pissed when he realizes that his “LEGEND” had yet to cross the Ocean.

  19. funny interview….sway c is a dickhead….sounded like a ten month old baby, babbling…muthafucking nigger u aint shit…created a brand my ass. big ups to sway dasafo…1
