Last year there was a hype storm around ‘Scottish grime’, with the focus mostly directed towards Paisley’s Shogun (who quite rightly deserved the plaudits). But anyone with their ear to the ground will know that the talent pool is deep in Scotland and there are many MCs who deserve the same exposure. One of those MC’s is Zayn Grieve aka SWVN (pronounced 'Swan').
Long-term followers of SynthGlasgow will know that we’ve been supporting Grieve for years. South African-born and based in Glasgow’s Southside, he’s a versatile lyricist with a highly engaging flow, delivering insightful rhymes that shine without the need for posturing.
