Born a military brat, KeepitSwain moved yearly before finding a home in the South. As he got older, he began to balance out school and life stresses through songwriting & poetry. This started Swain along his musical path, as he began to rap, sing and engineer his own songs in college. While in Gainesville, Florida he joined with independent label Late Night Early Morning and continues to release music with them today. Currently residing in Atlanta, KeepitSwain’s music combines lyrical content and effortless wordplay with a range of southern twang drum breaks and groovy synth-heavy beats. Add that to his high energy live performances and a positive message laced through out his catalogue, and Swain promises to stand out amongst his competition.

What you believe?
Did you come to see me or you just came for the trees?
You ready for the coming or you ready to lead?

What you believe?
F*ck around till you're responsible enough to conceive
Educated through hell, just to learn some degrees 
And they act like they can't tell its a struggle to breathe
RIP Eric G., NYPD brigade- 
And this ain't overnight, through the centuries made
Target practice for the messenger they sent through the maze
So many raised living trapped like they were meant for the cage
But I know black lives been mattered,
Black lives been slaughtered.
The only thing new is a social media martyr.
Then the next trend spins, we immediately follow
The next trend spins, there we go...
Bite the hand that feeds you, that's a delicacy
My missions to raise a king to do it better than me
Cause I'm that nigga pissing up in master's lemonade
Bragging bout a bigger wage, boy you still a slave

You think just cause you got paid that you not slaves?
You think just cause you got paid that you not slaves?

Don't be nervous to live up to your purpose.
Give me everything if I deserve it
Name a time I did you a disservice, I've been busy working
Tryna dodge all of the sharks and the serpents, bro they're in cahoots
Here's the truth: I ain't rapping Channel 5 News
I ain't fake enough, my folks waking up 
Slave to a cell or slave to a home 
Shit, most of these niggas slaves to a cellphone
I'm making it well known we need to stop it
Don't let them hush us down- 
Here's some money, change the topic
No offense to LeBron or Kimberly Kardash
We need a lot more than a little hashtag
I ain't finna ask Dad, he no longer has the answers
This world don outgrew the both of us
Private planters investing all they seed in the needs of material gain
Niggas gotta feel something for that change
Swear these niggas never healed nothing from the pain
So when we walking out, we still chained yet again
Mama says we blacks going back to where we came
Land of gold brains, whole grains & no shame
I'm burning propane saying this ain't what you thought
400 years of getting off Plymouth Rock
Law abiding citizen depending on the legislature
Was it set by the man or by the maker?
Young money flowing like a student credit union
Food for thought in the pot, bet that get em brewing
Five star point guard, you can't keep em from shooting
Like a clock, yeah that brother know its time to keep it moving

You think just cause you got paid that you not slaves?
You think just cause you got paid that you not slaves?
You think just cause you got paid that you not slaves?
You think just cause you got paid...
