All Hail Y.T. & Anthony Danza Drop Thanksgiving Collab ‘All Hail Danza’ https://swaysuniverse.com/all-hail-y-t-anthony-danza-drop-thanksgiving-collab-all-hail-danza/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=all-hail-y-t-anthony-danza-drop-thanksgiving-collab-all-hail-danza Fri, 25 Nov 2022 19:46:42 +0000 https://swaysuniverse.com/?p=167136 “All Hail Danza” is the collaborative work of two pillars in underground hip-hop, All Hail Y.T. and Anthony Danza. The two have somewhat of a cult following, racking up millions of streams independently over the last few. Years. And after a few guest appearances on each others projects, they are now joining forces for an exclusive Black Friday drop.

These two have worked with some of the biggest names in music like Scarface, Bun B and Boldy Jamesto Nipsey Hussle, Jay Worthy and Larry June. But this new project only has a handful of features from some notable names like Left Lane Didon, Aj Snow and Asia Soule’.

Peep the video for “BBS Boys”.

The bulk of the production is handled by Montreal beatsmith DJ Manifest. Ghanaian producer 80’s Baby, Nic Wheeler, Tavares Jordan and Freddie River also add contributions.

‘All Hail Danza’, feels like stepping into a 1989, E30 M3 BMW today and being transported back in time sonically. Street game laid over luxurious loops and bass laden synths in only a way Danza & Y.T. can. Listen below.

Ten Sneakers To Gift This Holiday Season https://swaysuniverse.com/ten-sneakers-to-gift-this-holiday-season/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=ten-sneakers-to-gift-this-holiday-season Fri, 25 Nov 2022 15:26:46 +0000 https://swaysuniverse.com/?p=167074 The relationships between major sneaker brands like Nike and Adidas and our community have become fractured, to say the least. But there are several alternatives that have been less endearing to the black members of society who would prefer to patronize the more known brands and companies. This shouldn’t be so. During this holiday season, let’s try to make a change. Let’s take this opportunity to pour into companies run by us because it’s not like their products are less fly than the big brand names. Some of these black-owned brands are of the same if not better quality and style.

In this article, we will give you ten great sneakers from black-owned brands that you should own. Here are ten sneakers to add to your wishlist or to gift to someone special in your life during the holidays:

1.  Enzo Venom

If you’re looking for a pair of multifunctional sneakers, then the Enzo Venom may be the one for you. These shoes are stylish enough to wear to a social event and are also very breathable and sporty for use in the gym, court, or on the track. If this sounds like your kind of shoe, then go online to Enzo Footwear and order a pair of Enzo Venoms.

According to Enzo Footwear, the Enzo Venom was a brainchild of a distinctive footwear combination of Streetwear culture and athletic sports. These themes are imbibed into the shoes and with a few added qualities as well. They’re comfortable, stylish, and durable sneakers. Your work ethic is perfectly complemented by its unique design, which doesn’t sacrifice quality.

Note that each sneaker is designed to accommodate wide feet, so if you already have wide feet, we advise you to go for a one-half size up so it’d be comfortable and breathable to wear.

Visit Enzo Footwear today to get yours!

2. Enzo Dryrun

For comfort and style added with a touch of elegance, you cannot go wrong with the Enzo Dryrun from Enzo Footwear. Enzo Footwear came through with this unique pair of sneakers. It utilizes the company’s most advanced cushioning compound to create an ultralight missile to provide high energy return all day. Mixing both comfort and performance, the Enzo Dryrun provides enough support for your foot to both ensure comfort during running and return energy more efficiently.

They achieve this by using a rubber outsole that impacts the cushioning, doesn’t allow for twisting, is resistant to abrasion, and removes the worry of slipping. This makes it easy for you, the wearer, to adapt to any road condition.

The Enzo Dryrun is a perfect combination of fashion and function to create a stylish and comfortable sneaker that is adaptable to any road and designed to make you look amazing.

3. Sia Collective – CV 0.02 “TAUPE SHROOMS” VULTURE MID

They’re lightweight and comfortable for you to wear and enjoy at events or the gym. Comfort cannot be overemphasized here.

5. BrandBlack – Bravo Cordura Off-White

The Bravo Cordura Off-White from BlandBlack takes both function and fashion into consideration and perfectly balances both in this sneaker.

BrandBlack infuses Wraptech Vibram rubber on the outer soles and premium leather/suede for strength and maximum comfort.

This athletic-influenced lace-up sneaker is perfect if you want an upgrade to your casual look. So to all the ladies out there, you can’t miss the Bravo Cordura Off-White.

6. Superb Courtside

The Superb Courtside sneakers are a great addition to your sneaker collection. Not only are they comfortable to wear, but they also run true to size.

It’s a sneaker made for everybody. Don’t know what to get your loved ones? Get a pair of Superb Courtside.

7. Superb Turbo Ghost

Superb presents another pair of sneakers that are fitting and all sizing. The shoes run true to size, however, the Superb company doesn’t make half sizes. So if you wear a big size and a half, we advise you to order a half size up. But if you’re a smaller size and a half, then a half size down is your best bet.

Superb Turbo Ghost is a good choice to gift your loved ones this holiday.

8. Fini – Lucas Creamy Purple

The Lucas Creamy Purple from Fini is handcrafted in Portugal at the best-in-class factory leading in sustainable and responsible sneaker production. They are made from high-quality full-grain calf nubuck/napa, lined with breathable polyester, waxed-cotton laces, and natural cork footbed with foam for that extra cushion.

They come in normal sizes, so if you’re a half-size, you’re encouraged to order a size up.

For class and elegance, the handcrafted Lucas Creamy Purple sneakers are your go-to sneaker.

9. Pyer Moss – Experiment 4

The Pyer Moss Experiment 4 “Grass Is Greener” is one of three final colorways. Wearing this color scheme fills one with a brave sense of conquering anxiety. You can embrace the optimism of facing the unknown and hope for the best in the future. Deep meanings for a sneaker, right? That’s what you get with Experiment 4 from Pyer Moss.


Now we present the LØCI SEVENs, which adds a bit of detail to an absolute classic. It is handmade in Portugal with completely recycled materials that give you a superior water-resistant top, with a custom-made cork insole for a soft re-bounce to keep you charging ahead. The soles are made with durable and breathable lightweight recycled rubber for extra durability and maximum comfort, and they are also useful in creating a no-slip rubber grip.

The Løci Sevens are a pair of sneakers recommended for everyone. Order yours today!

Lecrae Airs Out The Industry Agenda, Talks ‘Church Clothes 4’ + Freestyle | Sway’s Universe https://swaysuniverse.com/lecrae-airs-out-the-industry-agenda-talks-church-clothes-4-freestyle-sways-universe/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=lecrae-airs-out-the-industry-agenda-talks-church-clothes-4-freestyle-sways-universe Mon, 21 Nov 2022 23:09:53 +0000 https://swaysuniverse.com/?p=167066 There is a lot of low vibrational music in rotation and that has been the case for the last 10-15 years. The industry funds and promotes the antithesis of what hip-hop was founded on. Lecrae stopped by Sway In The Morning and had some real talk about the industry agenda, and why positive uplifting music for our community does not get the airplay.

Lecrae has been in the game for a minute, but had become more mainstream with the pandemic hit “I’m Coming In Hot” with Andy Mineo. But the Grammy winning spitter is back at it with “Church Clothes 4”.

The album is a bit on the darker side of what Lecrae has been dealing with, and he breaks down how he came to this album with Sway and the team. He also dropped some bars just to put everyone on notice that even though he has a Grammy he is still a hyena!
