Recently we caught up with UK hip-hop MC Sway, the latest signing to Akon’s label Konvict Music [or maybe Konlive as we reported here] and all around nice guy. This is our second time meeting Sway, the first was backstage at the 02 Wireless Festival a couple of years back. His career has come leaps and bounds, and just weeks away from his next smash ‘F UR X’ ft $tush being released (July 16th 2008, get your advance), we caught up with the grand ghanian to talk about some huge collaborations with Akon and Madness, being romantically linked to Estelle and a slew of deaths that almost made him quit rapping
As always, we welcome your comments below!
Firstly, well done to our girl Estelle for getting American Boy to number one in the UK charts! I feel compelled to repost the video as it’s a landmark in UK/US hip-hop collaborations.

BUT it doesn’t end there, as at last weekend’s 1Xtra Live show in Coventry, Akon brought out UK rapper Sway, to announce his signing to Akon’s Konvict Music (though technically it may be called Konlive, ahem… tax man). Here is the exclusive audio, with a very annoying ‘i wish I was as famous as Akon so i’ll keep Ad-Libbing him‘ support DJ. Also, Akon, looses his grip of English a little, but we like him so it’s ok.
And watch out for Sway’s new single, F ur X, featuring $tush, which you can buy now at super hi-quality from Play.com Digital. Support Sway by visiting his MySpace and get some free mixtape downloads.
