A Brief Introduction to SwagHeemHoops

Rap/R&B crew SwagHeemHoops has posted dozens and dozens of no-budget videos on its YouTube page over the past year or so. As is clear in the examples below, the product's quality is always questionable, but the Greenbelt, Md., group's hunger for attention is certainly not. A very short email interview with group member Dylan "PrinceDylannova" Ritson produced the following facts:

1. The name SwagHeemHoops means "being at your best at all times. Confidence, high self esteem, and being fresh."

2. Goals and aspirations: "We hope to be internationally known, hope to be multimillionaires, have fans all over the world, and overall we want to be signed by a major record label."

Group member David "Dave O." Osano also has dozens of vids on his own YouTube page. The group maintains a DatPiff profile, where mixtapes can be acquired. A sample of some of SwagHeemHoops' efforts:

A song about potentially getting signed to a record deal:

A song about being a musical artist:

A song about having sex and then taking a shower:
