Its the dumbest #### I ever heard. Just say style mutha####a say style. Also swag is dirt weed where I'm from. The #### where its burnt grass and peed on my some mexicans.

What's up with this word and why do people like to use it so much?

yeah i hate that "swag" and "Swagger" #### too

but if you think about it, we had our own version of "swag" when we were younger.

First one that comes to mind is "Steez"

@ who invented the word Swagger. Definitely wasn't a rapper. Most of these young ni##as think a rapper did though which is sad . Real talk though hoes in Jersey City used to call d*ck swag yeaaaaaars ago.

Swagger is the new shady. I remember when I was in high school back in 2002 and that's what the lighter folks always said. "OMG, he's a little shady." They didn't even use it in the proper context, they just thought it was cool to use. "That girl is fat...yea she's shady." Especially girls with that word. I swear, everytime I hear that word now, I want to smack someone.
