What is Swagger?

October 15, 2008

I decided to name my blog The Swag Express, because my swag is at 100 trillion. Swagger was a relatively obscure expression, occasionally used to descibe the charisma or charcter of someone. But it has taken over the hip-hop world and become synomynous with Kanye West and Lil’ Wayne (thus a hit song, “Swagger Like us”). But what is swagger, really?

Merriam Dictionary define swagger as:

1 a: an act or instance of swaggering b: arrogant or conceitedly self-assured behavior c: ostentatious display or bravado 2: a self-confident outlook : cockiness

Our modern connotation is not as harsh, but certainly in relation to the denotated meaning.

Urban dictionary definitions are:

How one presents him or her self to the world. Swagger is shown from how the person handles a situation. It can also be shown in the person’s walk.


Swagger is to to move with confidence, sophistication and to be cool. Swagger is to conduct your self in a way that would automaticaly earn respect.

I’m not really that arrogant, but as an artist, my swagger is at 100 trillion. Hence, the title of my blogspot.

This is my first entry for The Swag Express. I’m a writer, a student music journalist, fresh freelance writer, photographer, artist, and student filmmaker. With this blog I plan on sharing some incite on music, film, culture, politics, and more from a unique angle. There are a lot of blogs out there, but let this one be your textbook- and allow me to be your professor.
