Swanky Ali


Name: Swanky Ali
Hometown: Queens, New York
Age: 23
Age You First Fell in Love: Wow, that’s hard to answer. I had a lot of false starts, I think. Probably I was like 7, she had a birthday party and I went over to her birthday party and she ain’t pay me no attention, I was so sad. It felt very real. Just looking back on it, it doesn’t even seem like it was me, so I seem kind of removed from it, but it was very real at the time. These things don’t get any less realer or more realer. As an ad-, well I wouldn’t even call myself an adult, as a growing man-boy thing, I think it was really in college, the kind of romantic love and that was 18-19. I’ve broken a heart many times. I think waking up everyday is a heart break, going to sleep kind of is too. But it all leads to something new and that’s the beauty of it. But I get my heart broken by women all the damn time, I’m very sensitive. I’m a Saggittarius.
Love Is: Any form of expression of oneness. You make yourself into something that’s outside or even inside, just feeling yourself.
When Did You Fall in Love with Hip Hop: Yo, that’s easy. I started listening to Tupac first, like real heavy. But I didn’t really think that I want to do this, until I heard Food & Liquor by Lupe Fiasco and I was like, I didn’t even know you could rhyme like that. So I went back and listened to the mixtapes, that motherfucker is dope as shit. The stories he was telling’ man- after I heard that I was like, “I want to do that.” So that was the moment for me. I was about 16-17.
