Scavenger Ent-SWIFT TONGUES / Bio

Following the deaths of Tupac and Biggie Smalls, Swift Tongues identified a void within the hip-hop community. He began working diligently to perfect several rap styles, which led to the emergence of Swift Tongues. His multiple delivery methods have drawn him comparisons to Tupac, Jay-Z, Scarface, Biggie, Ice Cube, and Common and can be considered a conglomerate of all the great ones.

Swift Tongues was born J. Mitchell in Seattle, WA, on October 14, 1979. His mother and fathers drug addictions forced his grandmother to step in and act as a guardian for him and his younger brother. Swifts upbringing in West Seattle exposed him to drugs and alcoholism at a young age and he began selling the same poison that destroyed his family.

The emergence of his talent that had manifested was released at 15 years old when he wrote his first song entitled, fallen solider where he delivered the heart-wrenching story of the death of a childhood friend.

His rapid ascent to stardom was put on hold due to the death of his best friend June Bug. Following the death, Swift began his spiral downwards and became heavily involved in hustling and gang activity to help fill the void.

Swift Tongues childhood can be held in connection with his unorthodox delivery, which moves from pain to triumph as he vividly depicts his real life trials and tribulations using tracks as his canvas.

Currently Swift Tongues is working on multiple projects, his mixed tape entitled “Scavenger Hunt” and album entitled “Personal Vendetta; which is slated for release early August 2010
