Mack 11 Drops A Fun, New Video for “Swaggin” from his Mixtape

Young, large, and in charge, Mack 11 has come out forward, once again, with another banger! This time, he is letting everyone know just how it all goes down whenever he is on the scene. The latest single “Swaggin” is a hot new joint based on the hustler’s stunt worthy lifestyle, with Mack 11 at the center of the scene. Visually, “Swaggin” chronicles the artist as he shows off his flashy jewelry, money, expensive cars, and all the perks of the lavish lifestyle. Mack 11, surrounded by his crew, drops bars that make it clear that material things are no big deal, when you’re making the money to pay for everything you want. As the video shows, Mack 11 is confident he can buy and have anything he wants because he hustled to get it. Now there is no stopping this rapper from making a mark on the music industry with his style, his attitude, and his delivery. Carried over a trap house beat, “Swaggin” is definitely a speaker knocker and sets the tone for folks to get out and work for what they want out of life.

Introducing Thom Worth – ‘Oh! Lucinda’

With it’s floaty slacker riffs and sugar sweet melodies, Thom Worth’s new single ‘Oh! Lucinda’ is three minutes of finely crafted pop perfection. Essentially exploring the age-old tension between the hot-flushes of a new relationship and the cyclical melancholic torment of heartbreak, ‘Oh! Lucinda’ is both a celebration of young love and a lament on the deceptiveness of it. Worth’s falsetto, doo-wop backing, and angelic chorus-soaked guitars make for an immediately gratifying listen. The composition originally began shortly after Worth returned from working abroad in 2015, and he wrote it with a view to making the most infectious song he could. Recorded live with members of London-based band The Lodgers, it was produced by Worth himself and Dan Joseph Clarke. It’s an incredibly accomplished single from the young melody maker with the sort of effortless zest for songwriting that recalls heroes like Paul McCartney and Morrissey.

Ryan Chernin for Skope Magazine

Ryan’s musical path first began at an astoundingly young age. “My mom has this one story – my grandmother swore by it too – that at three or four months old they were talking to me in my crib and I apparently gave them their exact intonation back,” Ryan recalls, laughing. “According to my mom, that was my introduction to music.” He insists that his real introduction was the Yellow Submarine tape she’d play for him in the car, and the piano lessons he begged his parents to sign him up for as a child.
