OG Swaggerdick is one of the most recognized figures in Boston music-wise. Boston is home and so much more for OG Swaggerdick. When describing Boston’s music scene, OG Swaggerdick said, “It has no identity when it comes to HipHop, so it kinda gave me a blank sponge canvas where I can just absorb everything I loved and was inspired by in my childhood and bring it all to life now.” OG Swaggerdick plans on continuing to bring his childhood alive as he has more music and visuals, as well as some big things that he is very excited for.
