I am unapologetic in this opinion of mine: “Swag Surf” is one of the most overrated “anthems” in hip hop.
Oh, it’s not? Okay, then, when was the last time you heard a function go past the song’s opening hook-slash-first 60 seconds and people enjoyed it (and I don’t mean Lil Wayne’s epic version)? I have literally seen the group, F.L.Y., perform the song live at a festival and after said hook the crowd just stood with bewildered looks on their faces.
I say that to say that 2 Chainz does his thing over a modified version of the instrumental, dubbing it a “Stay Woke” freestyle. He makes this song that much more tolerable.
