IAME's new album "Lame$tream" is on Heaven Noise Recordings! To go along with the album, the Sandpeople & Oldominion member has dropped a brand new video for the song "Swaggupy," featuring/introducing the #rapgame's next star, Young Coconut. The song and video attempt to merge two very unrelated things: "swag" and the Occupy Wall St movement. In fact, the only common ground that these topics might share is that they have both been beaten into the ground by band wagoneers (better yet, swagoneers). But IAME is no hater; in his own satirical way, he is showing love to both the Occupy movement and the "swag rap" dream.. If IAME can peacefully coexist with Young Coconut, there is hope for us all.
