Swamp Thing (@SwampThingRaps) (@TimbuktuRaps + @chokeules + @Savilion): Firedogs (Album)

Swamp Thing is the brainchild of Timbuktu, Chokeules and Savilion. Their first album Creature Feature offered a glimpse into the warped world of Swamp Thing, but now the b-movie monsters drag themselves out of the depths for their hard-hitting sophomore release, Firedogs. Three well-established artists in their own right join forces to do what they do best: make dope hip hop and rock hype live shows, fine-tuned from years of work in the studio and countless performances.

Long time collaborators Timbuktu (Toolshed, Teenburger, Backburner) and Chokeules (Toolshed, Backburner) have teamed up with fellow Toronto emcee/producer Savilion (Creature Box, Backburner) to form a group unlike anything they've done before. Each member has been contributing to the scene for over a decade, recording, touring, and putting out music. Both Savilion and Timbuktu are also producers/engineers with credits ranging from Sadat X to Awol One, while Timbuktu and Chokeules have performed at festivals such as SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Under Pressure. They've also performed with notable acts like Aceyalone (Freestyle Fellowship), GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Lootpack (Stone Throw), El Da Sensei (Artifacts), and many more.

Swamp Thing combines the trio's experience as Savilion and Timbuktu create party soundtracks and soundsapes on which the three emcees rap about topics ranging from horror and sci-fi to wild nights and life on the road. At the end of the day, Swamp Thing is all about banging beats, hard rhymes, and melting faces off with rap. Stay tuned.
