DJ Rob Swift Made Hip-Hop History Like No Other DJ





Most people know DJ Rob Swift for his work with Linkin Park and the X-Men aka X Ecutioners. But for me, his album Wargames is an untouchable masterpiece. He put it out shortly after 9/11. It was a statement against the war, and poverty...It was so courageous. It spoke to nonviolence. I think this is TRULY an album Dr. MLK Jr. would have supported and I don't like to make assumptions about dead leaders...

However, this record was immaculately executed from front to back. With a turntable, DJ Rob Swift was able to say things that rappers were unable and mostly too afraid to say. He really captured a lot of the emotional pain and confusion that our nation has been in since 9/11. And, you see the artwork is chess heavy. Its hard to find, but, I encourage you to get it. It has a DVD that comes with it....
