Info:R-Swift, a native New Yorker, now resides in Philadelphia, is an avid poet and lyricist. Although he began rapping when he was 11 years old and wanted to do things his own way, God inspired him to start his ministry at the age of 17 in 1998.

Start
Initially, he only rapped around his friends and in church until the Lord saw it fit to move R-Swift's ministry beyond the four walls of the church. Living most of his life in Philadelphia; surrounded by the influence of sex, money, drugs, popularity, and the constant rush for fame. He began to put his hope in the wrong thins such as selling drugs, sexual immorality, and living a violent lifestyle. While on the road to becoming a product of his environment, he still wanted to do good.

Boys Choir
Attempting to do so he became a member of the Philadelphia Boys Choir & Men's Choral, was an award recipient of the Concerned Black Men Inc., and a featured performer at the William Ross Scholarship Banquet. Currently, Swift is actively involved with the Youth Study Center in Philadelphia (a detention center for youth offenders) where he ministers the Gospel.

Lifestyle
R-Swift now makes it his duty to show the love of Christ Jesus through his lifestyle, spreading the gospel of reconciliation to all who will hear. From nightclubs to corner cypha's to underground hip-hop spots.

Son
R-Swift and his wife lost their baby boy on February 26th, 2009. Their son RJ was born on August 11th, 2008. The couple also have a daughter.

Compilations
He can also be found on the compilation: Best of the submissions volume 2 from 2005.

Label
R-Swift was signed to the label Rhyme Council. But his new release for 2006 the EP "Revolutionary Theme Muzik" was also backed up by the label: Lamp Mode Recordings.

CMR
In CMR's E-Bulletin of March 2007, Cross Movement Records announced that R-Swift has joined the CMR roster. And his album "Revolutionary Theme Muzik" will be re-released on CMR in 2007.
