    Default Myck Kabongo aka Yung Swag: Aspiring Rapper.

    CBSSports.com

    Texas freshman Myck Kabongo might be the nation’s best incoming point guard. He’s also apparently the best rapper in college basketball.

    Of course, we’ve all heard the basketball player-turned-rapper routine before. Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Shaquille O’Neal, Ron Artest – they’ve all tried it. Aside from a catchy verse here and there, most athlete/rappers are fairly awful.

    Kabongo is confident he won’t be like that.

    “When people hear the music, they’ll see it’s not just another basketball player trying to rap,” Kabongo told Jason Jordan of ESPN.com. “I didn’t want it to be corny or anything like that. It’s really good and I guarantee that it’ll be better than what people expect.”

    Kabongo, whose stage name is Yung Swag, is a Canada native who had one of the more infectious personalities in the class of 2011. That undoubtedly will help in his quest to be a successful rapper.

    “It’s just in me,” Kabongo said. “It’s something that I used to play around with and grew to really love. So I decided to do it for real.”

    Kabongo will release a 15-track album next spring entitled “Late Nights and Early Mornings.” He has a feature from Kevin Durant on the album, which is sure to attract some extra attention to the album. Kabongo said it won’t be for sale, but he will make it available for everyone to hear.

    With features from Durant and a stamp of approval from Austin Rivers (“Everything I’ve heard from him goes hard. He’s nice.”), Kabongo could rival Tennessee’s Renaldo Woolridge a.k.a. Swiperboy for the top dog in college basketball rapping.

    Maybe someone can set up a freestyle battle – and a one-on-one game.

    Any rapper named "Yung Swag" cannot make good music. Stick to basketball.

    Hahah I think I have to agree with this. But I am curious none-the-less.

    Anything that gives him more a platform to stand on, is good in my books.

    he already has the perfect rapper name... no need for awful nicknames

    MC Kabongo. That's the kind of name that deserves to be on the cover of Word Up! Magazine.
