Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) April 15, 2014 -- The songwriter and performer of hip hop known as Swiggamortis has released his latest official single, "Hard to Handle." The track is the first Swiggamortis single to be globally distributed and may be viewed as a debut release in that respect. Swiggamortis is currently signed to the Riitazblock Management music label.
Swiggamortis is the professional name of Milton Thompkins. He cites as main artistic influences such legends of the mic as Nas, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, and KRS One. Naturally, many traits and nuances of these musicians can be heard in Swiggamortis' own material, and especially on his present offering to the urban music underground, "Hard to Handle."
Swiggamortis got his start in music in high school, where one of his chief intellectual pursuits was, in his own words, "being a student of hip hop."
Asked to expound the inherent message of his new single, "Hard to Handle," Swiggamortis writes that his song is quite simply "Good lyrical content, music you can listen to all day, boom bap hip hop."
Though his main category of sound is rap and hip hop music, Swiggamortis is a fan of all categories. His official bio describes him thus:
"My name is Milton Thompkins, A.K.A. Swiggamortis. I am a Riitazblock henchman. I am a student of all genres of music, especially hip hop. I'm influenced by lyrical content and beats that are gritty and infectious. I hope to leave a impression in hip hop and hope at the end of the day when they dig up a time capsule and discuss the music that influenced the masses, I'd like to be in on that conversation!"
Listeners and longtime fans of hip hop and rap are enthusiastically encouraged to take a good look at Swiggamortis' "Hard to Handle." It is not just a clever name.
