If you haven’t heard about Meta P’s Kill Swag movement by now, it’s about time you start paying attention. For a dose of background on the Rhode Island artist you can check my ABC’s of TECB (see: “K”), where I featured Meta and Kill Swag as one of 2012′s top highlights in music, but, aside from that, this is almost everything you need to know — my dude HATES swag.
The video you see above is the anthem for Kill Swag, and who better to recruit for swag assassination than the Landmine Lieutenant and Demigodz strong-arm, Celph Titled. The track is produced by Knuckle-Up Productions and video animated by recent RISD graduate Tyler DiBiaso. In spirit of the much-anticipated release, I caught up with Meta for some brief word association. This is how things went:
TECB: Kill Swag.
META P: Smack your ear snares. Forties of OE. Ciphers on the porch. MPC bass. Dirty underground clubs. Music that stays in the streets. Commercial rape.
TECB: Celph Titled.
META P: Monster. Rubix Cuban. Top 5 dead or alive. Underground legend. DEMIGODZ. Lyrical giant.
META P: Teen wave. Texting. Lollipops and mix CDs with glitter. Crying over everything. Gays in wheel chairs.
TECB: Die Hard.
META P: Hasn’t been good since the second one. It died hard with Justin Long. A computer virus? I wish I could find the writer whose idea that was and give the writer aids.
TECB: 8th Wundah.
META P: Alien producer. Astrology expert. Outside the box. Pure talent. Gritty samples. Insomniac beat maker.
TECB: Pink Friday re-re-release.
META P: Throw up dried and stinking in the summer heat. Dirty glitter sneakers. Babies in the trash. Rat hair. XXXXXL leopard thongs. Transsexual. Cancer.
META P: Mine.
