Sway “don’t you know who I am” Calloway
UK Rapper Sway Dasafo
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!
