Cinematic Visuals 

“Swear” is bolstered by an official music video which is cinematic in its scope and isn’t afraid to portray the song’s evocative narrative with realism and authenticity. Featuring both artists, it’s a visual dedication to graft, remembering your roots, and the power you can create from combining immense talent with hard work. Both compelling and unflinching, it serves as an inspiration to everyone out there on a mission to serve their purpose and work their way to the top of their game. 

The Come Up

Hailing from Montgomery, Alabama, J.K. Mac is captivating music fans and the industry alike with his chameleon-like flair for switching up genres; from the infectious sleeper hit “No Love” to the melodic introspection of “Kale”. One listen to his diverse discography tells you all you need to know: you can’t predict what he’s going to do next, which is why the world can’t help but keep coming back for more. 

YoungBoy NBA’s Hot Streak Continues 

Incredibly prolific and adored for his uncompromising lyricism combined with innate melodic richness, YoungBoy Never Broke Again burst onto the scene in 2015 and quickly became known as one of his generation’s most poignant musicians and storytellers. 

A regular staple on the Billboard charts, his 2018 debut album, Until Death Call My Name, notched its place as a Top Ten of the Billboard 200, swiftly followed by chart-topping mixtape AI YoungBoy 2. His features read like a who’s who of the rap game, boasting collaborations with the likes of Future, Lil Baby, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Rich the Kid, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and Birdman.
