Talk Is Jericho: The Realest Swerve Strickland – You Couldn’t Be Me

Swerve Strickland is a man of many talents, and wrestling is just one! Swerve has some serious Chess chops and mad music skills! And if you haven’t heard him rap yet, what are you waiting for? His debut solo album, “You Couldn’t Be Me,” is out now (listen on Spotify or wherever you stream music). Swerve talks about all the work and killer collabs that went into the record, including songs with Flash Garments, Anthony King, Benny The Butcher, Jewice, and Monteasy. He even has a track by Kanye West! Swerve discusses his biggest influences, how he developed his own flow and style, and what he learned from artists like Musiq Soulchild and Tyler The Creator. He also shares the story of his impromptu concert on the Jericho Cruise this year, and whether more live shows are in his future! Plus, gives a play-by-play breakdown of the big chess tournament on Jericho Cruise and how he and Luchasaurus pulled out the W in the end!
