iTunes Review

An up-and-coming emcee representing for Akron, Ohio, Swoope is part of the High Society collective and signed to Collision Records. He's already dropped several independent projects (Zoo, Applause Vol. 1, Spring Fling), setting the stage for his “official” debut album, Wake Up. Very influenced by Kanye and Drake, his songs are heavy on melodrama and introspective storytelling, preferring to rhyme about his life and faith rather than fake thug/kingpin fairytales. Musically he keeps listeners on their toes, mixing up genres with instrumentation that varies from simple, classically minded pianos to crunchy distorted electronics and anthemic drum bashing. His Christian beliefs are on display throughout but never get too in your face, while his meandering flow keeps things interesting over the course of 15 tracks. Lots of breathy guest singers provide the hooks, but Swoope's verses are really the stars of the show. "Ideality," "No Impostors," and "Aesthetic/Beautiful Rise Prelude" are standouts.

Wake Up homie!!

Stupendous album!! No disconnect here, rhymes and music blend in seamlessly with each other. Paints clear pictures with his visual writing but also has a very high repeat value due to his amazing lyricism and wordplay. There's always something new to discover in there. Can hear the Lupe & Kanye influences in there sometimes, & I love it as a Lupe(and Kanye) fan, but Swoope is still his own person/artist, doesn't try to be anyone else. Above all the talent though, this is God glorifying music with a meaningful message and that's what is most important!! If you're sleeping on Swoope you need to Wake Up homie!!

No words describe!

Just amazing. Simply amazing. Honestly don't know how to right a review about this album. Musically and lyrically one of the best albums I've ever heard!


Swoope put in work on this album. All I can say is wow. I've been waiting for a classic for a while.
