Swagger Rite is the standard-bearer for Toronto’s trap scene. Recruiting Yella Beezy and Flipp Dinero for a top-down turn-up anthem, Swagger Rite shares “Drop Top,” his latest single.
Powered by plunking pianos, the single finds Swagger Rite slipping into a trance, listing his array of topless automobiles. The track is bookended by a pair of standout verses in disparate styles, as Dallas rhymer Yella Beezy twists his southern drawl into knots and Brooklyn’s Flipp Dinero foregoes melody for a ferocious flurry of triplets.
The first high-profile collaboration for an artist who built a fanbase without relying on features, “Drop Top” demonstrates Swagger Rite’s infectious style and proves that he can hold his own with rap game heavy-hitters.
