The SWAG is the incarnation of an underground phenomenon. With more than 500 shows the seven-member band has been an integral part of the international hip-hop scene for over 7 years. For many the SWAG enjoy the status of a 'living legend'. As early as 2011, they founded the SWAG JAM Session, a weekly event and mix of concert, open mic jam and party which aligns the band in their musical living room - the Badehaus Berlin. They played with so many celebrities and musical heavyweights that even the band has a hard time remembering them all. They came from over 50 countries and from all five continents: Dead Prez, Bilal, Robert Glasper, Sean Price, Jeru the Damaja, Kool Savas, Marteria, Chefket, Amewu, Matador, Keur Gui, Juliani, Rapadura, Dub FX or Seth Sentry to name just a few.
The SWAG is more than a band. The SWAG are a multicultural family and they are now seven years old. Time to celebrate with them: they grew up together, children were born and marriages were closed and still they play a show at least once a week. There is no reason to change that. Celebrating one more reason in our fast-paced time and letting The SWAG live up to it. This is what we want to do now with a whole night of music, on two floors and together with special guests, live acts, DJs and many friends.

"Dieses Jahr wird das Benefizkonzert „Donate For the Future“ für die Stiftung „junge Erwachsene mit Krebs„ einzigartig, urban, authentisch - Berlin! The SWAG + Jetzt kommt Fargo feat. Tinka & The Blank Faced
Tickets: VVK 13€ zzgl. Gebühren / AK 15€ ► http://bit.ly/Donatetickets (koka36.de)"
"KEUR GUI gelten als eine der sichtbarsten und engagiertesten Hip-Hop-Gruppen auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent. Die beiden Musiker und Mitbegründer der Protestbewegung Y'EN A MARRE ("Wir haben es satt") Kilifeu und Thiat gerieten bereits als Jugendliche mit den autoritären Tendenzen im politischen System des Senegal in Konflikt und verbüßten mehrere Haftstrafen. Trotzdem sind sie ihren Grundsätzen, schlechter Regierungsführung und Ignoranz mit intelligenten Texten zu Leibe zu rücken, Kunst niemals zu kommerzialisieren und dem korrupten System die Stirn zu bieten, immer treu geblieben.
2011/2012 waren sie maßgeblich an der Protestbewegung im Senegal beteiligt, die zur Abwahl des ungeliebten Präsidenten Abdoulaye Wade führte. Ihre Einladungen als Musiker und Vertreter der senegalesischen Zivilgesellschaft haben Keur Gui unter anderem nach Spanien, Indien und immer wieder nach Burkina Faso geführt, wo die bekennenden Anhänger von Thomas Sankara an zahlreichen politischen Veranstaltungen und Hip-Hop-Festivals teilgenommen haben.
Anlässlich der BERLINALE, in dessen Rahmen der Dokumentarfilm "The Revolution Won't Be Televised" gezeigt wird, führt es KEUR GUI nun nach Berlin, wo sie als Special Guests zum stadtbekannten SWAG JAM im Badehaus eingeladen sind!"
