618’s own Mr.Brownswagger, linked up with Kansas City producer Baby Nelson, to create the anthem “Swagger 2 the Max,” which also features an artist by the name 100, and is expected to be released with Browns upcoming mixtape “Strap or Die.”
The song itself features the up tempo 808 snare and string melody and a theme consistent with the featured artist name Brown (Swag) ger , filled with sound effects including a glimpse of auto tune, a Pewee Herman drop, and more.
The video, shot by Eagle Films,shows Brownswagger, at an East St.Louis liquor store, A & S, shows different scenes of them pulling down bottles, and posted up at the local coner store.
At the video’s closing Mr.Brownswagger gives us a glimpse of his newest single “Thot Chick” which I’m assuming is also on the upcoming mixtape “Strap or Die.”
One of my biggest moments of 2012 was one of the 1st. January 12th being able to say I helped bring Oscar winning, Hip Hop Icons 3 6 Mafia to the Gateway to the West and even more dope accidentally having them come on founding member Dj Paul’s Birthday.
The same day I meet the Mayor of East St.Louis Alvin Parks for the 1st time as well at city hall, and was able to hear a lot of advice and wisdom from Memphis Legend Dj Paul.
The concert it’s self was unpredictable tosay the least, just like the weather that day.

The evening of January 11th gave St.Louis its only real ( & out the blue) winter storm that season, with mixture of snow, ice, traffic jams, & head aches.
All in all the truest 3 6 Mafia fans came out, Juicy J’s addiction (ratchets) came out. And of course the most known unknowns were in the building. Juicy J, Dj Paul, &
A very big S/o to Clint Collins, entrepreneur and owner of Studio 618 for giving me the oppurtunity to work with him on such a unreal experience, while not knowing me from a can of paint. This was the 1st of many projects to come.
