Sway triumphantly returned with some of the fastest rapping committed to tape (& our personal favourite lyric of the year “I know you missed me, I missed you too”). “Still Speedin” exceeded all expectations as a set up single & charted at #19! We made the Top 20 in the TV Airplay Chart & had him sharing his wisdom on the Jo Whiley Music Show as a panel guest, as well as chatting on Freshly Squeezed & Soccer AM. Lots more material to follow…
